At 23:05pm yesterday (Feb 22), Phuket City Police were informed of an incident in Soi Mali Kaew, Koh Siray.
Capt Akkaradet Phongphrom arrived at the scene with Kusoldharm rescue workers to find a Yamaha motorbike lying in the road. Nearby was an unconscious man aged between 25-35 years old who had sustained severe head injuries and multiple broken bones.
“We didn’t find any identification card on the man,” Capt Akkaradet said.
The man was taken to Vachira Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
