Two women have been killed after their motorbike collided with a car in north Phuket early yesterday morning. The accident occurred at around 6.40am on the Baan Mueang Mai – Monument Road in the sub-district of Srisoontorn, just to the west of the Heroines Monument.

The victims have been named as 59 year old Pensri Klaewkla from Thalang and 55 year old Thimaphon Ratchasri from Nakhon Si Thammarat, according to a report from the Phuket Express.

Emergency workers who arrived on the scene found a damaged motorbike and a car at the side of the road, along with the bodies of the two women.

Another woman, the car driver, was waiting for police. She has been named as 31 year old Ms. Shikako Tanaka. According to some media reports, she is of Thai-Japanese nationality and an airline employee.

Police are now examining CCTV footage of the scene, which shows the motorbike crossing the road before being struck by Ms Tanaka’s vehicle. Officers say the footage confirms that the car was speeding at the time of the collision. Ms Tanaka has been taken to Thalang Police Station for legal processing.
