The collision occurred in front of the Thalang branch of the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) on Thepkrasattri Rd just after midnight.

Capt Wichit Nokkaew of the Thalang Police was called to the scene at approximately 12:10am and was joined shortly afterwards by emergency services workers from Thalang Hospital and Kusoldharm rescue workers.

On arrival they discovered the body of a man lying on the road. He had suffered serious head injuries, a broken left ankle and significant bruising to much of his body.

Not far from the body lay a Harley Davidson big bike while a white Phuket-registered trailer truck was parked on the roadside.

From the initial investigation, police were informed that the truck was u-turning when the bike, travelling at high speed, hit the truck which resulted in the fatal collision.

Specific details on the deceased such as his nationality, age and location of death were not released at time of press by the police handling the case.

Safety Matters: For more Traffic Lights at U-turns on Thepkrasattri Rd 

Little Tommy Tucker | 03 November 2020 - 18:53:18

Imagine zooming along a 3 laned motorway/autobahn, autostrate in the fast lane to be suddenly confronted with an artic lorry doing a U turn from the opposite line of traffic. Bat shit mental.

There was a solution to avoid these accidents at U-turns, but, the local residents thought they looked "ugly", so, they weren't built.
