A fatal road accident occurred in Chiang Mai when a 24 year old musician fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his motorcycle into a road sign.

The accident, which took place on the Chiang Mai-Lamphun road, resulted in the musician’s death before reaching his residence after work.

Upon arriving at the accident scene, emergency services found a Honda Scoopy motorcycle with the registration number 2กล 4827 Chiang Mai lying in the middle of the road. Nearby, they discovered a fallen road sign and the lifeless body of Natthapong Phromphat, who resided in the Nong Hoi community area. The severity of the head injury he sustained left his brain exposed and ultimately claimed his life.

Initially, it was found that the deceased was a musician who played at restaurants. After finishing work and while returning to his accommodation, it’s presumed that fatigue caused him to fall asleep at the wheel, leading to the fatal collision with the road sign, reported KhaoSod.
