The accident happened at approximately 5:10pm on the north side of Srisoonthorn Rd near the Bang Jo intersection.

Thalang Police arrived at the scene to find a Hino cement truck with a Honda Scoopy motorbike stuck under the front of it. Behind the truck was the body of 40-year-old Danai Sikaewkiaw, chief postman at Cherng Talay Post Office.

CCTV footage of the accident shows traffic moving very slowly approaching the intersection. The cement truck was in the right hand lane and Mr Danai was riding on the left side. As both vehicles slowly moved forward, Mr Danai changed direction and rode right in front of the cement truck.
