Rescue workers provided first-aid to the injured men at the scene before taking them to Vachira Phuket Hospital to be treated.

Early investigations revealed that the motorbike with the sidecar – a blue Honda Wave – was heading north on Chao Fa West Rd and attempted to overtake vehicles in front by driving into the oncoming lane before colliding head-on with another motorbike – a yellow Honda Wave.

Chalong Police confirmed that local CCTV footage will be inspected to determine the exact cause of the accident before relevant charges are filed.
