A car driver who witnessed the accident, named by police as Mr Bass, told the officer that he was driving behind the scooter when it lost control and just smashed into a roadside pole. Police are investigating the cause of the accident.

During the Songkran road safety campaign, Phuket Vice Governor Arnupap Rodkwan Yodrabam had called for police to conduct alcohol checks after all the accidents resulting in deaths or injuries. Police did not say anything about alcohol tests in this particular case.

3 people on a bike is  very common all over South -East Asia. It won't change because of some western moaner. Get used to it and stop crying or stay somewhere else.

@Kurt    "  Must be thai girls" What a moronic and discriminatory comment !   And why should they have passed Chalong circle ? Don't you know where Makro Wichitsongkram road is ? They could have come from every direction , but for sure not passing Chalong circle and being 5 minutes later near Makro.  Again you did not read the article well.Better to stay away from the keyboard in nig...

lol.. daily life inthe jungle... 3 people in 1 bike? i don't see any helmet in the picture either.. do at least have a licence? but well... police prefer to stop single farang drivers instead as off course they are more dangerous then 3 or 4 idiot in one bike like those one... i'm totally not sorry for those idiots

Another scooter with a mind of its own! [..when IT lost control and smashed into a roadside pole] LOL. [Police are investigating the cause of the accident] ROFL! How about charging the girl for carrying two adult pilion passengers? Is she licenced? I'm betting there are not 3 helmets at the scene of the incident either...

Just 5 minutes before accident they probably passed unchecked Chalong circle police check stand. Must be thai girls. ( helmets?) 3 on a motorbike, than for one are no feet steps. Legs hanging free. That perhaps got the trio out of balance during the ride. And there are many poles along the roads!  :-)
