UPDATE: The Phuket News have learned that the 36-year-old Russian man, Mr Sergey Tatarinov, was not in fact involved in the accident as originally reported.

Police have confirmed that a copy of Mr Tatarinov’s passport was found at the scene of the accident which led them to believe that he was one of the persons involved in the accident.

Police have no further comment to make on their investigation into the incident.  

Lt Khwansirinart Thairat of the Wichit Police was notified by a local resident of an accident at 2:55am today where it was reported that a car had collided with a motorbike in front of the Leelawadee Restaurant near Dibuk Hospital on Chao Fa West Rd.

Police were told that one man was dead at the scene.

Police arrived at the scene, on Chao Fa West northbound, with Ruamjai rescue workers to find a large crowd of residents gathered on the road.

The driver of the Vios, Korean national Ms Lee Hyemi, 38, was also at the scene.

The unidentified injured man was taken to Dibuk Hospital with severe head injuries where he was later pronounced dead.

Lt Khwansirinart was told that the motorbike was heading North at high speed when it collided with the Vios which was heading South.

Police have confirmed that their investigation into the incident is currently ongoing.
