Pattaya Woman Killed in Motorcycle-Minivan Crash

Pattaya —

A 33-year-old Thai woman died after she rear-ended her motorbike into a minivan stopped at an intersection in Pattaya in the early hours of Friday, June 14th.

The accident occurred at 4:36 AM at the Wat Bunkanchanaram Intersection in the Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. It prompted an immediate response from Pattaya police and emergency responders from the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation.

Upon arrival at the scene, authorities found a yellow-plated minivan, driven by Mr. Kittiphong Hitmorn, 37, parked in the middle of the road. The minivan had minor damage to the rear bumper.

The involved motorcycle, a red Honda PCX, had sustained significant damage and was lying on the ground near the body of Ms. Wipaporn Nachaisin, the 33-year-old rider. The Thai woman suffered severe head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the medical team. Her boyfriend and relatives were present at the scene, visibly broken by her passing.

The minivan driver, Mr. Kittiphong, told police that he was waiting for the traffic light to turn green when the motorcycle rider suddenly slammed into the back of his minivan. The impact caused the motorcycle to fall to the ground, fatally injuring the rider.

Pattaya police are investigating the cause of the accident and will review CCTV footage from the area. The victim’s body was transported to Banglamung Hospital to await further religious rites.
