Police were notified of the accident, near the Bangjo intersection, in Moo 4, Srisoonthorn, at 1am.

Officers arrived with the rescue workers from the Kusoldharm Phuket Foundation to find the body of Thinapat Sung, 39, by the side of the road.

His heavily damaged red Phuket-registered Yamaha motorbike was lying on the road nearby.

The force of the impact left one of the motorbike’s wheels in the mud beside the road. The Grab food delivery bag that was fitted to the back of his motorbike was also left lying on the road.

Food delivery bikes drive like kamikazes. Not a single law of the road respect. Accidents are there. Let's say:  It's all in their driving game. When you see them driving, just stay clear.

The dangerous way many of those Grab deliverymen ride is most likely the root cause. Every one I see is speeding weaving in and out of traffic like it's a race to deliver their order. Not only Grab, Food Panda and the others all the same. SLOW DOWN!!
