Capt Kraisorn Boonprasop of the Thalang Police was notified of the accident, on Thepkrasattri Rd southbound opposite Wat Muang Mai, at 3:10am.

Arriving at the scene police officers and rescue workers found a Phuket-registered Honda Wave slammed into a small wall adjacent to the front gate of a private home.

The headlight and plastic fairing on the front of the motorbike had been obliterated by the impact.

Mutadee Kahapana, 18, identified by police as the motorbike driver, and his passenger Abusanma Luakpol, 20, both from Moo 2 Cherng Talay, were both dead at the scene.

Witnesses at a convenience store about 500 metres before the accident told police that they saw the two men pass by on the motorbike, Capt Kraisorn noted in his report.

“Witnesses said that Mr Mutadee was driving very fast and the motorbike exhaust was very noisy,” he said.

“Mr Mutadee lost control of the motorbike on a curve and hit the wall,” he added.

Capt Kraisorn deemed the accident to be the result of reckless driving.
