Ms Anderson was riding pillion when Mr Glass lost control of the scooter they were riding on after he braked suddenly to avoid ramming into the back of a car, that he said had braked suddenly Monday last week (May 8).

Ms Anderson fell onto the road and was run over by an 18-wheeled truck driven by Nattawoot Kimchue, 30, from Thai Muang in Phang Nga Province. (Se story here.)

She was six months pregnant, with Mr Glass as the father.

Ms Anderson was also mother to 5-year-old Shaye, from a previous relationship. Young Shaye lived with her and Mr Glass in Phuket, but has since been taken to live with his father in Bangkok. (See story here.)

“Both men are being held responsible for the death of Ms Anderson, because both were driving recklessly,” Lt Col Sanit Nookong of Thalang Police station confirmed to The Phuket News today (May 17).

“The drivers have already been charged,” he affirmed.

“Right now, the investigation is not yet closed because we are still waiting for the autopsy to be released. Then they will go to court,” Col Sanit added.

The case echoes an incident in early February in which Australian tourist Thomas Keating, 22, was charged with reckless driving causing death after an accident that resulted in the death of his girlfriend Emily Jayne Collie, 20.

The two crashed their separate jet-skis into each other off Kata Beach in southern Phuket, Ms Collie sustained severe injuries in the crash which later claimed her life.

Mr Keating was handed down a two-year suspended jail sentence and fined B5,000 after pleading guilty to the charge. (See story here).

Kurt, i reacted on your comment 11.06.46 and 14.57.23.At the time i wrote my comment,your comment from 16.50.19 wasnt published yet.And again,Mr.Jatupat awaits trial in jail,because he is accused of lese majeste and of a computer related crime act.For many months he gave his opinion on facebook,without getting troubled!But there are laws in Thailand regarding what you can say or write and what you cannot.Thats why i compared it with the laws in many European countries about denying the holocaust!If you do so there,you will get punished to.But it seems that you think freedom of speech or writing means,that someone should have the right to say or write whatever he wants.And if you think he is wrongfully accused,then you may feel free to actively support him.But as you are only a talker  who likes to sit in his armchair in an aircon room{sounds familiar to you?},nothing will happen.And as i usually do not read the BP,why should i comment there.You are the one who likes to comment every article you read-{except articles of course where a foreigner did definitely something wrong}.

Many times eagle not understand things, as he write so many times.
I mentioned Mr Jatupat, and BangkokPost did it also, because of getting a prestigious International Human Rights Award.
Does eagle understand what that means?

I do not know what eagle means with critic mr Jatupat about... "Among other things".
Yes, we talk here about freedom of speech in the year 2017!

To compare that with a denial of the 1939-1945 holocaust is complete out of line.
How can one compare freedom of speech with denial of Holocaust. Complete of the road!
eagle should read the comments in BangkokPost and react there if he has the guts. 
But he doesn't, coz there he will get 'cold showers' from no nonsense people who eat him raw.

And eagle again just cherry picked something out of my writing.
Conveniently he not react on my writing about the Benz racing boy and Boss Redbull.
That are the guys who should be behind bars for many years already, not a thai prestigious international price winner who stands for freedom of speech and press!
Nothing mr Jatupat wrote is not true! That is why he receives this Award.
Again, the truth has longer legs than the lie, even a reaction of someone who swerve/put down around reality of honouring mr Jatupat can not be taken serious.

eagle seems not to understand that mr Jatupat rises above the local shrimp thinking. 
He thinks cosmopolitical, and for that he is in thai jail.
A international highly respected person.

Actually Thailand needs persons like mr Jatupat, a man with principles and back bone. 
A man who stands for something. 
His time will come. He has a lot support. Even international as we see now.

Kurt...what have your nonsense comments got to do with a motor accident?

The Phuket News

Eagle | 18 May 2017 - 17:13:16

Kurt,not sure why are you mentioning Jatupat.This person is accused of lese majeste among other things.A crime by law.You cannot compare it with freedom of speech.Same as the denial of the holocaust in some European countries.

Nice that PN placed my comment about student-activist Jatupat. A man who stands for freedom of speech and writing.
BangkokPost has today a article about it + many comments.

What is a question for me is: Why are Benz racing ( drugs involvement) and Boss Redbull ( killed a policeman) walking many years free, and a student who advocate international recognized  human rights is locked up?

The Phuket News

Kurt | 18 May 2017 - 14:57:23

@ Sam hayman:  I hope PN is able to publish that the Thai law student-activist Jatupat, arrested and locked up for a article on Facebook, getting S.Korean most prestigious Human Right Award.

As neither driver could safely avoid what was in front of them, seems both were tailgating which is a fairly standard operating procedure on Thai roads. Now which bad driver was more at fault for the death? The man who lost control of the machine he was operating would be my view, especially since he was operating an inherently dangerous vehicle with a particularly precious passenger.

kurt, sorry I don't see the truckdriver is guilty in any way. the woman fell from a bike right in front of the truck and was run over. she was kill'd BY THIS TRUCK DRIVEN BY THIS TRUCKDRIVER. was this truckdriver speeding, drunk, without proper driverslicense???
non of this i get from the press.don't know where is any guilt by the truckdriver. because he went to work on this day of the accident??? like foreiners involved, but in no way guilty for a accident, was told by RTP, (you guilty, because if you never come to thailand this accident would never happen) this is no fairy tale, it was recorded time ago on two events by dashcam. kurt, i just hope for me and for you that never a person (farrang or thai) fall right in front of our car with no chance for us to stop in time. but in a case like that, feel free to declair yourself guilty. I would feel free to sue for damage to my car
