A policeman from Kamala Police told The Phuket News today that Suparerk Theppabut, 24, had co-operated with police.

“He was bailed, but in about two months when we finish collecting all the evidence, he will be called to the court.”

Robin Straka, 25, of Finland, was crossing Kamala’s main road when he was hit by a car, being driven by Suparerk. He was on holiday with his girlfriend at the time, and crossed the road to use the ATM at Tesco Lotus.
