The Ford Everest, with a Surat Thani licence plate, was stopped two kilometres from the scene of the crash. The wreckage of a Fino motorbike was found wedged beneath the seven-seat vehicle, Thai media reported yesterday (Dec 14).

Police said the driver, Nicholas Edward, 41, a British national, appeared drunk when they managed to stop his vehicle following a chase.

The crash occurred on Thaweeratpakdi Rd on Koh Samui around 10pm on Tuesday (Dec 13). 

Witnesses told police the vehicle overtook a van and crashed head-on with a motorcycle heading to tambon Bo Phut. The impact threw the two men on the bike on to the road. The driver of the car then sped away.

Mr Nicholas told police he was returning home from a party at a hotel and was not aware his car had hit the motorcycle.

Police initially charged him with reckless driving causing death. He was taken away for an alcohol blood test.
