A woman tragically lost her life when her motorcycle was run over by a six-wheel truck along a public road. The driver of the truck, 41 year old Komson, claims he was oblivious to the collision until alerted by bystanders. The unfortunate motorcycle accident occurred around 10.30am today.

The deceased, who will remain anonymous, was found lifeless atop her Honda Wave motorcycle, registered under the number 5Kath1034 in Bangkok. There was evidence of scrape marks on the road and a fallen helmet nearby. The truck involved in the fatal motorcycle accident, a Hino with registration number 70-5357 Pathum Thani, was parked at a petrol station with Komson waiting for the police.

Upon interrogation, Komson revealed that he was exiting from Thep Kunchara 36 Street and was about to enter a petrol station. He switched on his turn signal but was unaware of colliding with the motorcycle until passersby screamed out that he had run over the motorcycle. Following this, he stopped the vehicle and came out to assess the situation.

Police Captain Virawat Niyomthai, the Investigating Officer from Khlong Luang Police Station, along with a forensic doctor from Thammasat Hospital Chalermprakiat and a representative from Po Tek Tung Foundation, arrived at the scene. After collecting necessary evidence, including photographs, the deceased was transported to Thammasat Hospital Chalermprakiat for further examination.
