The accident occurred on a curve near the quiet Tri Trang beach last week, where the body of 49-year-old Paul Anthony Bradbery from New South Wales was found partially lodged under the right side of the truck, driven by Sakon Sriprasit, 39.

Mr Bradbery’s motorbike was on the ground on the left side of the truck. A helmet was found at the scene, but he had suffered severe trauma. (See story here.)

“The investigation concludes that Mr Bradbery fell over on his motorbike on his own and Mr Sakon was unable to stop in time. Therefore, there have been no charges,” Maj Teerasak Boonsang of the Patong Police told The Phuket News today (April 7),

“Unfortunately it was likely that Mr Bradbery was not very used to driving the motorbike,” he said.

Phuket Tourist Police reported that Mr Bradbery checked in alone at the Baan Laimai Patong Beach Resort last Monday (Mar 27) and was due to check out last Saturday (April 1).

Foot...how do arrive at your assumption of speed being the main casual factor in motor vehicle accidents? Statistics doesn't indicated that. There are number of factors that can contribute to any accident. Just follow the inane comments on here to find the multitude of factors and take your pick.

Isn’t about time that the media and the authorities name the real culprit for Phuket’s high fatal crash rate?
It’s not the night.  It’s not the light.  It’s not the rain.  It's not the possibly inexperienced farang rider.
It’s the speed.  Speed!  Simply going too fast for the conditions at the time.  Time to get honest with things.

Not one day passes here without some people whining about the-what they think-unfairness towards foreigners.Seems like a place for justice fanatics here.

I miss the part telling me or the aussie had a motorbike driving license ( thai or Australian), yes or no?
If 'YES', than the police explanation is just crab.

Than the cement truck not kept proper distance from drivers in front of him. ( The usual practice, as we all experience)

So, when I drive over a falling thai motorbike person who has no driving license, am I than being excused too as a 'farang'?
No charges?

Hmm, no charges, bit of double standards here! Seems if it's a Thai involved in an accident it's ok, I thought any death had to go to court?  As per the Aussie guy's accident on a jet ski.
