So by using the word " has " instead of " had " they are inferring he will have more accidents even though he is dead

I guess that for some idxots staying here long enough they fall into the Thainess life  of drunk driving and speeding on a motor bike with no helmet.I can just picture him looking like the face on the old "Mad Magazine " with the caption,"What me worry?".

By reading the full report he also could probably the victim of a hit and run accident.
Anyway​, that doesn't make him alive and only he knows the answer.
May he rest in peace...

The article says that he was living in San Kamphaeng Phet for the last 30 years!! Wonder what was his occupation and what was his typical day like?

Don't forget this is Thailand and that English is not the first language of many people who write such articles.

Past, (has) present (had) and future (will). All three basic tenses confusingly brought together in one sentence! And the implication is wrong anyway.

 

By using the expression 'has been', the tense in the sentence is clearly implied and the grammar is therefor correct.
