PHUKET: -- An unidentified young man speeding on the Thepsrisin Bridge, on the outskirts of Phuket Town near Saphan Hin, has died in hospital from serious injuries sustained when his motorbike collided with a palm tree at high speed at about 1pm April 17.

 

Lt Phatcharee Wongboon of the Wichit Police Station together with Kusoldharm rescue workers arrived at the crash scene to find the young man lying unconscious on the road, bleeding profusely.

 

His motorbike, a red Yamaha M-Slaz 150, was lying on the road some 50 meters away.

 

About 25 meters away from the man was part of a broken palm tree with fragments of motorcycle scattered on the road.

 

Rescue workers performed CPR while speeding the young man to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town, where doctors later pronounced the man dead from his injuries.

Shouldn't  someone start a save the tree or save the soi tree foundation . I am sure a lot f British celebs and organisations would support it just like the Soi Dog whatever! Human lives are not so important these days, whether they were in the wrong or right.

What big bike? It's a 150cc engine that's as powerful as many scooters. Would have made no difference if this was a Honda Wave, he would still be able to speed and crash.

 

It's really not about the size, it's about the technique! :)

Seems it was to big for him and to fast also.
