Witnesses told police that they saw the man riding the motorbike toward Chao Fa West Rd at speed. They heard the engine rev high before the man lost control of the motorbike and struck the power pole.

Col Kanan noted that British consular officials had been notified of the man’s death.

The man’s body was taken to the morgue at Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town.


The Phuket News is withholding the man’s name until it has been confirmed that his next of kin have been notified.
