A parked car outside the owner’s home was hit by a speeding motorbike, leaving the bike’s rider severely injured in northeast Thailand. The incident occurred in the community of Sra Kaew, Nakhon Ratchasima province.

Early morning today, police from the Phimai station were alerted to a road accident involving a motorbike straying out of its lane and colliding with a parked sedan in the Sra Kaew community, along Anan Jakarat Road, Moo 14 Naimueang sub-district, Phimai district, Nakhon Ratchasima province. Officers arrived at the scene along with the Phimai rescue team.

The scene featured a red sedan with the license plate ‘กจ-1154 Nakhon Ratchasima’ sustaining severe damage to the front. A few meters away, a bronze Honda Wave motorbike was found in a prone position in the middle of the road, also with substantial damage. Close by, there was an injured male, identified as Thawee, 27 years old, the motorcyclist. He was found lying incoherent in the middle of the road, with wounds and a fractured skull. The rescue team swiftly transported the injured man to Phimai Hospital.

Upon investigation, the police discovered that the sedan had been parked on the side of the road in front of its owner’s house when the motorbike rider lost control of his vehicle, crossing lanes and smashing into the car with force, resulting in the injuries mentioned earlier. The police will continue to investigate the exact cause of the accident.
