Capt Natthee Pichitchainitimet of the Wichit Police was notified of the accident at 6am.

At the scene, in the nortbound lanes exiting the tunnel, Capt Natthee and rescue workers found a black Honda Wave on the road, along with Myanmar nationals Kyaw Ye Paing, 23, and Kyawn Ye Naing, 25.

Kyaw Ye Paing, who was driving the motorbike, had suffered critical head injuries and was pronounced dead at Siriroj International Hospital just down the road.


Kyawn Ye Naing was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital for treatment of his injuries, the seriousness of which were not reported.

Capt Natthee noted in his initial report that he was told by “witnesses” that the “two fell down by themselves” while riding out from the underpass.

Ver sad and unexplained. But what was added to the injury, were the graphic photos of the incident posted on Facebook shortly after it occurred, by a so-called Thai news outlet. More and more of these pictures are shared online and it is a very disrespectful and disgusting thing to do.

I don't believe the 'witnesses (?)' who declared that the motorbike guys just were falling off their motorbike while driving through that underpass at 6 am.
I not believe that RTP 'initial' report.  The word 'initial'  smells.  But, as they say here, if the guys didn't drive there ( which is not allowed) it would not have happened.

No one ever died from "falling down" on a motorbike. Someone else was involved.

Don't forget it is illegal to ride a motorbike through the underpass. Huge signs clearly explain this (yet another widely ignored) law.
