Thalang Police were notified of the incident early this morning on Thepkrasattri Road in Thalang.

Emergency responders arrived to find body parts scattered on the road. The person’s head was separated from the body. A trolley carrying garbage was found scattered nearby.

Thalang Police reported that a black Mercedes Benz with Phuket registration plates was parked at the side of the road in the northbound lane opposite the Mueang Mai PTT gas station. The driver was identified by police as 33 year old Paul John Mercer who had already been transferred to the Bangkok Phuket Hospital.

A staff member of the PTT gas station told police that he had seen the Thai man collecting old items and trash nearby. Before the incident he was collecting bottles and iron items and putting them in his trolley.

He was pushing the trolley and crossing the road at the time. The Mercedes Benz was heading northbound and allegedly hit the man, dragging the body 40 metres further down the road.

Police have requested the hospital to take blood tests of the driver. No charges have been pressed at the time of publication.
