Why should charges even be considered against the  truck driver HE was going the right way. Ghost Riders are just lazy and get what they deserve- unfortunately those they force into collisions are the ones that suffer. No sympathy for this dingbat- it's just natural Selection.

Seeing everyday uneducated ignorant motorbikes and motorbike sidecar drivers approving on the wrong side and endangering correct driving motorists - assuming they are to lazy to drive correct to the next u-turn and drive on the correct side of the road – and nobody seems to do anything about it.
Let’s hope that the driver of the car doesn’t get charged because it was obviously not his fault...

Som nam na.  I feel bad for the deceased's parents and family, but he got what he asked for.  People willing to do this stupid stupid behavior are simply asking to get smacked head on...and I have no sorrow when it happens.  We all see it...all ages of Thai...young and old... men and women...it has to be the most stupid of all their reckless behaviors.

A ghost rider is a ghost rider. Nothing to comment on that. Just that the correct car driver has a lousy emotion about it for the rest of his life. So sad.  The Thai Royal Police never act against ghost riders, not even when they drive almost over their feet.
