Thalang police were notified of the accident, which occurred directly outside the Makro store in Thepkrasattri Sub-District, around 2:20am this morning and attended the scene immediately.

“We went to the scene and found a 55-year-old Thai man, Pratip Rayeang, lying face-up on the road,” commented Thalang Police Captain Kraisorn Boonprasop.

“His condition was very serious so emergency services staff rushed him immediately to Thalang Hospital although, unfortunately, he was pronounced dead en route,” Capt Kraisorn added.

Nearby was Mr Pratip’s fellow passenger, 36-year-old Direk Reungrit, who was conscious but had endured a broken collarbone. He was also taken to Thalang Hopsital for urgent treatment.

There was no immediate information as to who was driving the motorbike, confirmed Capt Kraisorn.

The driver of the 18-wheel truck, 51-year-old Adisor Samankit, told police he had driven from Bangkok to Phuket and decided to park at the side of the road and wait inside the vehicle until the Makro store opened later in the morning.

He heard the bike crash into the back of his vehicle and confirmed it was raining at the time the incident occurred.

Police confirmed they have not yet made any official charges and need to pursue investigations further by questioning both Mr Direk and Mr Adisor.

Yes-yes, parked trucks on main road not give way to motorbikes who ignore them. But, just a simple question, was Makro not informed about the arrival of this truck? They all drive/work with iPhone in one hand. Makro has a enormous parking lot. No reason to park on a main road.
