Motorbike rider crushed by truck

Earlier, at 5:20pm., a 52 year old Thai man died in a motorbike incident on Bang Jo Road in Srisoonthorn. Thalang Police reported that a truck driver, delivering rocks to a nearby building site, was waiting at a traffic light. When the light turned green, the truck driver started moving and unknowingly drove over the motorbike rider, Thanakorn Kahong, who was waiting at the same traffic lights on his Honda motorbike.

A witness alerted the truck driver 15 metres down the road, and the truck driver stopped and waited for police to arrive. Thanakorn’s body was taken to Thalang Hospital. The truck driver was tested for alcohol and drugs, with results coming back negative.

Both incidents are under investigation.
