Emergency responders arrived at the scene to find 76 year old Graham Hughes lying injured on the road. Semi-conscious, Hughes had a dislocated left shoulder and a laceration on his foot. After administering first aid, they transported him urgently to Banglamung Hospital.

An eyewitness, 41 year old Pirawan, reported that the British tourist had been in Thailand for two days and had just left a bar when he was hit by a speeding motorcycle while crossing the street. The impact threw him to the ground, causing his injuries.
