Three die in Kalim horror smash | Thaiger

KATHU: Two Italian tourists and a Thai teenager were killed in a head-on collision in Kalim on Thursday night, a local Thai-language newspaper has reported.

The two Italians were named as Luiz Fransescopilato, 37, and his female companion Anna Montone, 30.

The Thai victim was identified as 15-year-old Patong resident Theerawat Samarnmitr.

Ms Montone was riding pillion on a blue Honda Click motorbike being driven toward Kamala by Mr Fransescopilato at the time of the accident, which happened on a hilly section of the road known locally as the Hin Tang curve, the report read.

According to the report, Ms Montone was killed instantly when the motorbike she was on collided head on with a modified off-road pickup truck being driven towards Patong by 75-year-old Jumnong Doomruk.

The pickup apparently crossed the center line following a previous collision with a green Honda Click motorbike being driven by the Thai youth.

Rescue volunteers pulled the comatose Mr Fransescopilato from a roadside concrete drain and rushed him to Patong Hospital, where he died soon after arrival.

K. Theerawat was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital, where he died about 11:30 pm that night.

Police called in K. Jumnong for questioning, but it was not reported whether he was charged with any moving violations.
