A tragic incident occurred last night when a 35 year old man lost control of his high-powered motorcycle and crashed fatally, with the vehicle flung 100 metres from his lifeless body on a road adjacent to the motorway in Pathum Thani province. Police Lieutenant Pratchanant Korkhun, the investigating officer from Khlong Luang Police Station, reported no witnesses to the accident.

At the scene yesterday, April 20, the deceased was identified as Nopparat, from Pak Thong Chai district, Nakhon Ratchasima province. His body, covered in blood, was found in the middle of the road, about 100 metres away from his overturned Yamaha R15 motorcycle, registered in Bangkok.

Despite the lack of direct witnesses, Police Lieutenant Prachanant Korkhun documented the scene and coordinated with the Ruamkatanyu Foundation to transport the body to Thammasat University Hospital for further examination. Efforts were underway to notify the relatives to arrange funeral rites, reported KhaoSod.

The forensic examination would help determine the exact cause of the crash, as the police worked to piece together the events that led to Nopparat’s untimely death.

In related news, a catastrophic traffic incident occurred on Suwinthawong Road, near the Harajuku curve in Bangkok, when a motorcycle collided with a parked pickup, resulting in the rider’s death. The accident, which took place on March 24, saw the motorcycle rider tragically killed after being run over by another vehicle.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Somkuan Nasommai, an investigator from the Suwinthawong Police Station, was notified of the fatal accident. Rescue workers from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation were immediately dispatched to assist.

Upon arrival, they found the 70 year old pickup driver, Pradit, who had sustained injuries and was in distress. His vehicle had been struck by the motorcycle, a Honda Click with Chachoengsao license plates, while parked due to a breakdown. Pradit was transferred to Vajira Hospital for treatment.
