RAWAI, PHUKET: A Frenchman and a Thai man were killed in a motorcycle accident in Phuket in the early hours of March 25.

Chalong Police found Cyril Chausse, 40, dead at the scene near his smashed motorcycle.

His bike collided with a motorcycle driven by Loei-native Naphatphol Hongchumphare, 25, who died on the way to hospital.

Mr Naphatphol, who worked as a server at Mai Lay Restaurant in Chalong, was traveling in the wrong lane towards Rawai when he crashed head-on into Mr Chausse and his passenger, Wanphen Saego, in front of Tesco Lotus.

Ms Saego, 30, remains in intensive care at Vachira Phuket Hospital.

No helmets were found at the scene.
