Lt Col Wutthichai said that the initial investigation had confirmed that Mr Jetsada was a staffer at a hotel in Sakoo and was riding northbound from Thepkrasattri Rd, while Mr Sayan was riding southbound, when the accident happened.

Police believe that on reaching the curve where the accident happened, one of the riders lost control of his motorbike and collided into the other, said Lt Col Wutthichai.

However, police had yet to determine who had collided into who, he added.

Police will continue to investigate the accident, Lt Col Wutthichai said.

I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often with all the ghost riding they do. Thepkrassatri from the traffic light where people U turn to go to the BCIS to the intersection at Honda there are 1000's of bike ghost riding all day long. The are insane. Too lazy to go do a U turn, just drive in the wrong direction and force everybody to avoid hitting them.

Nothing new...

Drive according the traffic laws, wear a helmet, drive not faster than 'advised' speed, and pay attention to the closed centre line on the road. That line has a function! And, never drive faster than you can think! If your thinking is slow, drive slower. All so easy to practise.

I guess it is safe to assume that both riders were not wearing helmets hence two more unnecessary deaths.
