Sanook showed pictures of the aftermath of a motorcycle accident near the Rama 5 road bridge in Nonthaburi yesterday. 
 
The CBR 650 was virtually unrecognizable - its wheels had both come off. 
 
Nearby was a good quality orange helmet. 
 
The head of the rider was found some way away. The torso was so badly injured that bones were visible. 
 
Athiphak, 18 from Lam Lukka, Pathum Thani was clearly dead at the scene. 
 
Witnesses told police that he had just exited the bridge heading in the direction of Bang Sri Muang when he lost control, catapulted and collided with a road direction sign.

It appears as though he did not see the stop ahead sign.

According to Thai sites, they reckon he was going 200 km/h.

There is a CCTV clip of the crash.

 

18 years old with this type of bike! Almost guaranteed suicide mission particularly with the non-existent motorcycle training here. I wonder who paid for it.

Age 18 I'd guess parents but if he's employed at a good wage Could be on credit.....

   If someone is still alive without a head, it's a ghost. Even the best helmet is useless when you don't fasten your helmet straps and drive like an idiot. These bikes are killers for inexperienced drivers. RIP.
