Unless I missed something, it seems the Germans on the bike entered the Russian's lane in an attempt to overtake the pickup and smashed head on into Russian. 

If so, how can the Russian be charged? 

thats the way i read it also

I can't comment on the facts in this case as we don't truly know, but unfortunately in thailand there is an attitude here that blame always goes to the car against a motorcycle until all the facts are presented...it's like the car is guilty and one must prove your innocence...by default the car driver has more money than the  financially deprived motorcyclist...so let's even the score BS...
