In the early hours of today, February 1, a good Samaritan tragically became a victim himself while assisting at the scene of a crash involving two motorcycles in Pathum Thani Province. A 38 year old man was struck by a speeding car, sustaining severe injuries.

The accident, which initially left three people injured from the motorcycle collision, occurred on the outbound Phaholyothin Road in front of Thai Watsadu, Khlong Luang district.

The site revealed a chaotic scene with two overturned motorcycles, a Yamaha Mio with a Nakhon Nayok registration and a Yamaha Grand Filano with a Bangkok registration, and a Mazda car with a Bangkok plate caught in the central gutter between the expressway and the parallel frontage road.

The Mazda had collided with Kasem, who was signalling traffic to aid emergency services. In total, five individuals were injured, including the three motorcycle riders, Kasem, and the car driver, identified only as 23 year old Kiattikun. Rescue workers had previously transported the victims to the hospital, reported KhaoSod.
