Thung Thong Police were alerted to the accident at 4:30am.

Officers arrived at the scene, near the Tesco supermarket about 40 0 metres east of the Sikor Intersection, to find the body of Chakkrit Rungboon, who had suffered severe head trauma.

Nearby was the wreckage of a Honda Wave motorcycle registered in Rachaburi.

Police found no signs of a helmet at the crash site.

“There were no witnesses to the accident, so we will check CCTV in the area,” said Pol Capt Wattanakorn Bumrungthin.

“We believe he was riding his motorbike from Phuket Town to his home in Kathu. He may have lost control of his motorcycle at high speed and crashed, or he could have been trying to avoid another vehicle,” he added.

Mr Chakkrit’s body was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

RIP, khun Chakkrit.
Well, no helmet, and police believe he may have lost control due to high speeding. As usual.
What vehicle you have to avoid if you drive a normal motor cycle speed at that time of the day? They just overtake you.

Well, drugs and alcohol tests could clear a bit more regarding this accident.
No police report of a hit and run accident.

Don't drive faster than you can ...
