Pattaya —

A late-night road accident in Pattaya, involving an allegedly intoxicated Russian driver, has left one person dead and another seriously injured.

The incident occurred around 4:00 AM on May 21st, 2024, on Sukhumvit Road near an intersection in South Pattaya. Local rescue workers and Pattaya police rushed to the scene upon receiving reports of the accident.

There, authorities found a Ford Everest SUV, driven by 40-year-old Russian national Mr. Lomasko Artem. The car had sustained extensive front-end damage. Authorities said Mr. Artem appeared intoxicated.

On the side of the road, rescue workers discovered a severely damaged Yamaha Belle motorbike and two seriously injured victims, identified as Mr. Boonphob Thongpan and Ms. Mukcharee Srithet, 28. The two were rushed to a local hospital. Unfortunately, Ms. Mukcharee sadly died from her wounds shortly after arriving at the hospital.

According to an eyewitness, Mr. Somsak Lomale, 40, the SUV driven by Mr. Artem was allegedly speeding and swerved into the back of the Yamaha Belle traveling in the same direction. The impact caused the motorcycle to spin out of control, throwing the two victims onto the road.

Mr. Artem was taken into custody at the Pattaya Police Station for further questioning and a blood alcohol test. The Russian driver did not make a statement to the press at the time of the accident.
