Lt Col Phacharathon Chan-iad of the Patong Police said he was notified of the accident at 9:50pm.

Police along with EMS providers from Patong Hospital and the Kusoldharm Foundation arrived at the scene, about 100m from the Panya restaurant, to find a blue-black Honda Click motorbike with heavy damage in the middle of the road.

About 20m away was the body of a woman, later identified as Petthip Namman, 49, from Khon Kaen.

Also at the scene was Jeeranai Khamjoi, 28, from Uttaradit, with severe injuries. He was unconscious and had a weak pulse.

EMS workers at the scene administered CPR and rushed him to Patong Hospital. He was later transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town.

Police said from their initial investigation that the pair were travelling from Kamala towards Patong when the accident happened.

Officers believe the motorbike was travelling at high speed when the driver lost control on the curve, sending the motorbike and the two people it was carrying into large rocks beside the road.

A discarded black helmet was found at the scene.

Police said they were continuing their investigation into the accident.

Really, Thais don't wear helmets? Shurely Shome Mishtake. Thanks for telling us for the 2432342343234th time. I never tire of hearing it.

No witness? Than we, RTP, start 'believing'. Only 1 helmet found. Thai law is explicite. ALL on a motorbike must wear a helmet. RTP made it a rubber law, by just want the driver have one. See around, papa-driver a helmet, with mamma and 2 kids no helmet. Is ok for RTP.

That road is not the best place to be travelling at high speed, especially at night. Only one helmet found while two people were on the bike. Out of curiosity, be interesting to know whether the rider have a valid driving licence. Many locals don't.
