PHUKET: -- Police have charged a council garbage truck driver for the death motorbike taxi passenger who suffered fatal head injuries in a collision at traffic lights in Phuket Town yesterday afternoon (April 17).


Phuket City Police and an ambulance from the Phuket Provincial Hospital in Rassada were called to the scene of the accident, at the intersection of Srisuthat Rd and Amphur Rd, at 5:30pm.


At the scene was a motorbike jammed under the front of a Rassada Municipality garbage truck, driven by Wirasak Boonlah, 35.


Motorbike taxi driver Suwit Panyayong, 65, had suffered minor injures, but his passenger, Adirek Suetrong, 39, had sustained serious head injuries in the collision and subsequent fall onto the road.


Both were taken to Phuket Provincial Hospital, but Mr Adirek was pronounced dead at the facility.

I normally give a wide berth to Cement Trucks, minivans (and buses coming down Patong hill) I shall now take a keen interest in ensuring I am not tail ended by any Phuket Garbage trucks...
