Three people were killed when a high-powered motorcycle hit a pedestrian in Pattaya early on Tuesday.

 

A Russian tourist and a Thai woman passenger were killed when the Kawasaki Z900 motorcycle they were riding hit and killed a South Korean man who was crossing the road in front of Soi Pattaya 7 in Tambon Nongplue of Chon Buri's Bang Lamung district at 12.10am.

 

The Russian was identified as Aleksandr Zakharov, 22, and the Korean tourist as Yongseok Choi, 20. The woman, who is believed to be about 20 to 25 years old, has yet to be identified, Pol Capt Sombat Kaewmoolsuk, deputy inspector of Pattaya police station, said.

 

Witnesses told police that the Russian was riding the motorcycle at high speed with the woman sitting on the back.

 

The motorcycle hit one of a group of tourists who were attempting to cross the street in front of Soi Pattaya 7.

 

The three bodies were taken to the Bang Lamung Hospital.

Another Russian lunatic thinking he's somewhere in the wild west causing the death of 2 innocent people. When are the Pattaya authorities (and elsewhere in Thailand) be able to separate/identify the many rapists and other international filfth from those the city really needs which are tourists, expats & retirees who behave normal!? Sadly we know the answer already..... NEVER!! RIP to the Thai and Korean victim.

I will give you right about almost everything but the Thai lady could just say no but seriously Thai love high speed too

No "speed limit" signs anywhere + no "pedestrian crossings" anywhere.

The above 2 =carnage and death.

and not a thing will change or be learned from this avoidable tragedy, pay the money and off you go, doesn't matter about a licence who gives a toss, and the renter of this death machine will never be held accountable **MONEY NUMBER ONE** for renting to someone unqualified to ride

 

Three people are now dead because of lack of regulation and allowing this kid to hire something he shouldn't, a motorcycle like this requires years of training and experience to ride safely - he very obviously had no such skills the fact he was speeding on beach road

 

RIP to all concerned - how tragic and all in the name of money and corruption 

According to Facebook the Russian lived here and was the girl's "boyfriend".  He was well known for driving his bike fast and for not wearing a helmet.  The girl worked on soi 6.
