Sadly this is not uncommon with Europeans in Thailand. Not being used to driving on the left they instinctively look the wrong way when pulling out & into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Car driver not at fault. Same thing happened to a Dutch friend of mine 2 weeks ago, also in Cha Am.

 

 

If they had a brain they would look left and right 10 times when crossing.

Many people are the cause of their accident themselves.

Just about the dumbest thing anyone could ever say.

 

If the person driving the car wasn't born then the accident wouldn't have happened, so it's his fault for being born. Same logic.

 

In Thailand, they would say: "Same, same but different !"

That is because the deceased was on a motorbike and the automobile hit the motorbike. This caused the deceased to be thrown onto the pavement, whereupon he was run over and became wedged between the road surface and vehicle undercarriage. The deceased was then dragged by the vehicle resulting in the reduction  of the body through multiple contusions and compression fractures.

 

And then his ass was grass.

 

Poor guy... Isn't it weird how on an open desolate road motorcyclists... pedestrians or cyclists often end up being hit... of all the places a car lands is on an innocent just going about his or her business.

What does it mean, run over by a passenger's car? 
The passenger that ran him over was a passenger of the French man at some stage

Farang is always at fault because if he didn't come to Thailand, it never would have happened

 

 

if a guy gets knocked off his bike moving across the road or run over crossing the road it is 100%  his fault even if the car is speeding, if its not safe don't go across DON'T GO  same as U turns its not rocket science.  that stretch of road is straight

looking at the vehicle it doesnt look like a simple case of being run over.

 

Regardless RIP to the French guy

I'm convinced there are  a lot of shortcuts when making the cars more plastic thinner metal less bolts and fasteners.

It's all over for him anway, guess it all happened so quickly he didn't have time to feel much; feel sorry for his wife, dealing with the grief and the aftermath, especially if she's alone here.

 

Tragedy aside:

Yeah, the use of this phrase intrigued me too;  'passenger car' is a bona fide English phrase, I think, and its meaning is obvious, just sounds strange here cos it's used outside of its normal context, and the writer treats 'passenger' as a noun rather than an adjective. Guess English isn't the writer's first language.

 

 

Passenger's car is not the driver's car, it's the passenger's car.

Poor guy and one feels for his wife. But are Westerners of this vintage, who probably haven't got astride a motorbike for decades, wise to hire one when on holiday here? It literally is dicing with death on roads which are among the most dangerous in the world. 

I don't think the French guys vintage has anything to do with it, You do not know if he has a bike back in France that he rides regular. I can quote other incidents where the vintage is more than half the French guys and some of them come from countries that drive on the same side of the road.

Something does not add up. How come so much damage has been done to the car with a collision with 1 single motor scooter.

The explanation given that the French Motorcyclists 'cut in front' of Mr Siridet's car is highly questionable... 

 

.... there appears to be very little damage to the motorcycle in comparison to significant damage to the front, left and right hand side of the car. 

 

Did the car spin and encounter further collisions? Was the car already involved in a previous impact before spinning and hitting the motorcyclist?....  Looking at the photographs of both the Motorcycle and the Car the extent of the damage appears not to tally with the story given. 

 

A car with that much damage may well have been traveling beyond the speed limit.
