A fatal motorcycle crash occurred on a bridge in Rattanathibet, Nonthaburi today when a 30 year old man from Rayong, lost control of his motorcycle, hit the bridge rail and fell onto the ground below. The man was identified as Kittiphong, originally from Klaeng, Rayong.

A motorbike taxi driver who witnessed the incident reported that Kittiphong had been weaving erratically before the crash.

Upon arriving at the motorcycle crash scene, police officers and doctors from the Institute of Forensic Medicine, along with volunteers from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation, inspected the accident site. They found Kittiphong’s Honda C70 motorcycle lying on the ground near the bridge’s edge. Further down, on the bridge’s median, lay Kittiphong’s lifeless body, which had sustained severe head injuries due to the fall.

According to a statement from 28 year old Wachira Khajonla, a volunteer from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation, he received a report of a man falling from the bridge and losing his life. Upon arrival, he found Kittiphong’s body underneath the bridge. The exact cause of the motorcycle crash remains unclear, but investigators will look into the motorbike taxi driver’s account that Kittiphong had been swerving before he hit the bridge rail and fell.
