The man* suffered severe head trauma when he landed on the road, in front of the Tesco Lotus Express on Saiyuan Rd, at about 9am, Chalong Police Chief Col Sarawut Chuprasit confirmed.

However, police have yet to determine what caused the man to fall.

“We checked footage from CCTV cameras near the scene and questioned witnesses, and all we know is that the man was riding his motorbike and fell down by himself,” Col Sarawut said.
