Capt Kraisorn Boonprasop of Thalang Police was notified of the accident, opposite Hoi Sab Restaurant on Srisoonthorn Rd in Thalang, at 5:15am.

Rescue workers arrived at the scene to find a white Honda motorbike in the 1.5-metre-deep ditch on the side of the road.

The driver, later identified as Pisanukarn Sasilaksanakun, was unconscious with serious head injuries.

He had also suffered serious injuries to his neck and right knee, rescue workers reported.

“The man was taken to Thalang Hospital and then transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town for a brain scan,” one rescue worker said.

Police confirmed they are still investigating the incident and checking CCTV in the hope of determining the cause of an accident.

There was no mention of whether or not Mr Pisanukarn was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident or whether police suspect alcohol was involved.

Well, whatever the cause, the accident rate here is screaming. I hope this young man can recover fully. No one deserves to be hurt and many others are affected by this incident.

Get with the program...that's where it is directed and to the silly people who make it.

Silly advices? Tell that to the people who get hospitalised with head injuries or died.
Most of us are on the road and drive careful, anticipating matters.
And we hope not to get involved in anything traffic accident, caused by silly people.

with all that silly advice on riding, why bother to be on the roads at all?

Always adjust your driving/speed to the road condition, day/night/weather conditions.
A narrow winding road? Adjust your speed.
No safety barrier? Adjust your speed.
Dark, and the road lights are so-so? Adjust your speed.
One anyway has to drive careful, as there could be sudden a pothole show up in front of you.
Think about that while driving at a Phuket road.

"Compassion? Nonsense."  How revealing....

The Phuket News

One can't expect compassion from one who wants to cane juveniles. If having a culvert on the side of a narrow winding road, without a safety barrier is rubbish, then I'm sure the rider's lawyer thinks differently and is rubbing his hands in glee. Travel the road with your dash cam and see.

Compassion? Nonsense. 'Design of the road'? Rubbish.
Many years old roads were mostly no accidents happen are ok.
Typical case of 'loosing control', many possibilities as:
Alcohol/drugs consumption. Speeding.
Many thai drive faster than they can think, that is risky.
I have a daily registered on my dash cam.
Roads are ok, as long you adjust your speed to road condition at pla...

The compassion for the victim here is just overwhelming, and sets a good example for expatriate guests in the Kingdom to follow, na?

The Phuket News

Jor12 | 16 January 2018 - 09:07:34

The question is where is the evidence showing he was a "reckless fool?" It could be the design of the road is at fault. But then again, this is PN where anything goes.
