Capt Somkiet Sarasit of the Chalong Police confirmed today (June 3) that the man, Harry Isaac Hitman, crashed into the cement block wall and was dead at the scene by the time they had arrived.

“It is highly likely that Mr Hitman was driving too fast, lost control, and crashed into the wall. He wasn’t wearing a helmet,” said Capt Somkiet.

“The accident took place on Soi Ta-iad about 50 metres from the junction with Chao Fa East Rd, close to the Home Mart hardware store.

“There were no eyewitnesses who saw the crash, but people found the man’s body in the road soon after it had happened,” he added.

Capt Somkiet explained that Mr Hitman held a valid UK driver’s licence for both a motorbike and car and that he was in the country on a tourist visa.

“I cannot confirm how long he had been here or when he was planning to leave,” he said.

“All I know is that Mr Hitman was staying on Soi Ta-iad, but I do not know if he was here for fitness training, or how long he was going to stay.

“His mother has arrived on the island to repatriate his body,” Capt Somkiet confirmed.

“Alcohol and drug tests have been carried out at Vachira Phuket Hospital, but we don’t have the results yet,” he concluded.
