Two motorcyclists collided with each other on Pattaya Klang Road in the early hours of this morning. The clash at 1.10am, today, January 5, involved a Yamaha Fino under the control of 27 year old Artragoon Aonsongchan and a blue Honda Wave 110, without a license plate, belonging to an unidentified 20 year old Thai man.

Both riders, Artragoon and the unidentified rider suffered severe injuries, amplifying the late-night drama. An eyewitness, 48 year old Prateep Yoyad, claimed that the unidentified rider was hurtling at breakneck speed, callously disregarding a flashing yellow signal. The inevitable collision occurred when he careened into Artragoon’s Yamaha Fino, crossing the intersection.

Promptly responding to the emergency, the Sawang Boriboon rescue unit raced to the scene, delivering vital on-site care before whisking the injured pair off to a nearby hospital, reported Pattaya News.

The unidentified rider, behaving erratically even in the aftermath, added a layer of mystery to the incident.

In related news, Pattaya witnessed a hit-and-run incident in the early hours of December 1, where a young motorcyclist was left injured due to a collision with a fruit side cart. The incident took place on the bustling Beach Road, and the victim was identified as 20 year old Krawit Jandang. Pattaya police discovered an overturned Yamaha Grand Filano motorcycle with a Chonburi license plate lying in the middle of the road.

In similar road news, a 66 year old expatriate was severely injured after a sudden accident in Pattaya. The pensioner found himself in a perilous situation when he fell off his motorcycle after a hasty attempt to brake.

The sudden stop was a reaction to a car reversing onto the road in his path as reported by the driver of the car. The incident was promptly reported to the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation.

The scene of the accident was Phonprapanimit Road, situated in the Nongprue sub-district of Banglamung district, within the province of Chon Buri.
