Ducati rider killed after crashing into pickup

By The Nation

 

PATTAYA: -- A man riding a Ducati motorcycle was killed when his big bike crashed into the rear of a pickup truck on a Pattaya road early Thursday.
 

Police said the accident happened at 1am on the Pattaya-bound Sukhumvit Road in Tambon Nong Plalai in Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district.

 

The motorcyclist was identified as Somporn Chansawang, 44.

 

The impact of the crash broke the motorcycle into two parts. 

 

Police took Chatra Ngiam, 29, a Cambodian worker who drove the pickup, into custody for questioning. He said he had exited a soi and had driven for just 100 metres when the motorcycle crashed into his pickup’s rear.

I would like to know more. Did the pickup have rear lights working? Did the deceased have brakes in good working order? Was either party tested for drink and drugs?

Maybe even two bits too fast.

 

Reminds me of a GoPro video by a "proud" big biker demonstrating he can do 228 km/h on an ordinary Thai highway.

Then swearing loud and breaking hard when a pickup enters the highway some 200 m in front.

Older cars and pick-ups crawling along without bright rear lights at night is common. Worse they are often in the righthand ( fast ) lane RIP the Ducati rider. I'm guessing he was riding too fast but no way to learn from his mistake now.

If the bike broke in half as indicated then the guy was driving way too fast.
I do agree, why take the Cambodian worker into custody? Is it SOP when a fatality occurs?

It was a simple "break failior" when a Dukatti rider rushing to die. ?

1,000,000 way to die. ?
