Pattaya Motorcyclist Passes Out and Crashes into Power Pole

Pattaya —

A young motorcyclist was seriously injured early Monday morning after he passed out while driving and crashed into a power pole on Pattaya’s Sukhumvit Road.

The incident occurred at around 12:30 AM on Soi Sukhumvit 61/1 in the Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. The Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Rescue Foundation received a notification about the accident and immediately dispatched a team of rescuers to the scene.

Upon arrival, rescuers found a white Honda PCX motorcycle had crashed into a utility pole. The front of the motorcycle was severely damaged. Nearby, they found the unconscious male driver, believed to be between 18 and 20 years old, lying on the road with a large facial laceration. He did not have any identification documents on him.

The pillion rider, 21-year-old Ms. Sorasicha Krasang, was also injured in the crash. She sustained a minor laceration to her left arm and abrasions to her body.

Rescue workers provided initial first aid to both victims before transporting them to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

Ms. Sorasicha told The Pattaya News that she and the driver were heading to South Pattaya on the motorcycle when the driver suddenly lost consciousness and swerved off the road. They then hit a roadside barrier before crashing into the power pole.

Pattaya police are investigating the cause of the accident and will interview the driver once he recovers.
