Fatal Incident in Pattaya: Man Run Over on No. 331 Road

Pattaya, Thailand – Tragedy struck early this morning on the No. 331 Road in the Huayyai sub-district of Pattaya. A man, identified only as Mr. Natthaphon (27), was found lying on the road, his body covered in blood after being run over by a car.

Emergency responders received a distress call at 4:36 A.M. and rushed to the scene. They discovered Mr. Natthaphon’s lifeless body, along with an identification card indicating that he worked at a local factory.

The driver of the SUV involved, identified only as Ms. Juthamas (36), remained at the scene, visibly shaken. According to her account, she was en route to Bangkok when she encountered an obstacle on the dark road. Initially mistaking it for a box, she attempted to avoid it but tragically ran over the victim instead. She promptly stopped her vehicle and contacted the police.

Authorities are now reviewing nearby CCTV footage to determine how Mr. Natthaphon ended up on the road. The investigation aims to establish whether he was already deceased or intoxicated before the fatal collision.
