Police could not confirm whether Mr Kasemsan was wearing a helmet, although no helmet was found at the scene.

Initial investigations and CCTV footage revealed that Mr Kasemsan swerved to avoid a minivan that turned onto the road he was on, causing him to lose control and hit the power pole.

An alcohol test was taken but the hospital has yet to disclose the results.

Police have notified the man’s relatives of his death.
