Two Phuket teens die in motorbike crash

PHUKET: Two teenagers were killed instantly when the motorbike they were riding crashed into the back of an 18-wheel truck on Thepkrasattri Road on Wednesday evening.

The two youths, both residents of Tambon Thepkrasattri, were identified as 18-year-old Tanongsak Mingpijarn and 16-year-old Suriya Madanon.

At the time of the accident the victims were traveling home on Thepkrasattri Road northbound, not far from the Shell station located just north of the Heroines Monument.

The accident was reported to Thalang Police at about 7:30pm.

There were no eyewitnesses to the crash, which occurred on a quiet section of road bordered by a rubber plantation.

As is often the case in road accidents here, the driver fled the scene on foot and left the vehicle behind. Police were still searching for him at the time the report was published.
