PHUKET: Two Russian students from Phuket’s British International School are tonight still in the intensive care unit (ICU) at Phuket International Hospital after being involved in a horrific motorbike accident on the bypass road yesterday.

Staff at the hospital declined to give details of the students’ condition, but did confirm that both Vlabislan Adrashko and Sevastan Lukashov were still under observation in the hospital’s ICU.

Police are waiting for the two teens to be well enough to question after the accident involving their Honda big bike and a car near Index Living Mall on Saturday.

“At about 1pm on March 30, Ms.Wannakij Maneerat, 39, was driving her car southbound from Lotus on Chalerm Prakiat Road [the bypass road]. She slowed to turn right at the u-turn leading into Soi Bang Yai [map here],” said Wichit Police Sub Lt Somboon Malai.

“As she was turning right, a big bike was heading north from Big C and the two collided. The impact sent the motorcycle 30 meters into a nearby Sino-Portuguese building, where it burst into flames, destroying the bike and damaging the building,” he said.

When police arrived at the scene they found Vlabislan Adrashko, 15, and Sevastan Lukashov, 16, unconscious about 50 meters from the crash site. Mr Adrashko’s right leg was broken and he had a wound on his right knee. Mr Lukashov had also injured his right knee and was bleeding from both ears.

They were taken to nearby Phuket International Hospital.

The front of Ms Wannakij’s Honda was extensively damaged, and both front airbags had detonated.

“We suggest that the car passed in front of the bike,” Lt Somboon said.

“Ms Wannakij’s insurance will pay the hospital bills and also cover the damage to the Sino-Portuguese building” Lt Somboon said.

“Both of the youths are now recovering at the Phuket International hospital. We will question them when they are better, and will then start negotiations with Mrs Wannakij,” he added.

Strong wind and waves this morning closes Phuket’s beaches, one swimmer rescued | The Thaiger

Phuket’s Rawai Mayor, Aroon Solos, ordered all beaches in the area to close after a foreigner was rescued this morning after being unable to make it back to shore. The foreigner was swimming off Ao Sane beach, just north of the popular Nai Harn Beach, when lifeguards were sent out to help bring him back to shore. The recent weather has been partly attributed to Tropical Storm Noul as other beaches areas around Patong have been closed since Friday. Mayor Aroon ordered both the Nai Harn and Ya Nui beaches closed until further notice. Noul crossed over the Vietnamese coastline […]

Phuket residents going hungry after local government assistance runs out | The Thaiger

Residents in Phuket, particularly those living in and around the west coast townships, are reportedly going hungry as the government’s municipal budget to provide food has been depleted. Despite efforts to revive tourism in the area, thousands of people are still in need of donated food to survive and continue to queue up for donated food every day. A public relations staff member at the Patong municipality says, sadly, there is no budget to do any more food handouts in the near future and that there is no word on when or if there will be any more handouts. The […]

The low pressure cell will help intensify the effects of the south west monsoon too. But the remnants of the storm won’t “slam” into Northern Thailand as one news site claimed – rather it will be a lot of rain and increased winds. The storm is expected to cross into Thailand around the Mukdahan province some time early tomorrow, Around the country, Saturday will be the […]
