Lt Col Chalaew Taihu of the Phuket City Police arrived at the scene with Kusoldharm and Srisoonthorn rescue workers to find a badly damaged Honda Scoopy lying in the road. Nearby was an orange Kawazaki big bike.
Lt Col Chalaew said, “There were three people riding on the Honda Scoopy; Ms Khwanta Bauchai, 33; Ms Vassana Binlaroi, 33; and Miss Chonlada Binlaroi, 13.
“Ms Vassana and Miss Chonlada only suffered minor injuries and were taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital. However, Ms Khwanta sustained serious injuries and was taken to Mission Hospital.
