A French chef who had just arrived on Koh Samui to open a restaurant was pronounced dead at the scene of a motorcycle accident this morning.

 

Philippe Maurice Fumoux, 53, came off his Yamaha N-Max on a bend in Maret sub-district on the ring road and collided with a power pole. 

 

He died instantly from head trauma still on his vehicle.

 

Friends on the scene said that he had arrived in Samui only recently to open a French restaurant with a relative who has a Thai wife. 

 

They said he liked to drink alcohol and had probably been drinking before the accident. This was coupled with the fact that he was not wearing a helmet and was unfamiliar with the road.

 

Police reported the incident and have informed the embassy.

I've run out of compassion for the idiots who kill themselves on the roads. Just not there any more.

Did he have children? Were his "stupid genes" passed on or was this a bit of Darwinian culling?

No RIP: when you're dead, you're dead. No "rest". Game over

Obviously the "stupid genes" were passed onto you by your parents.

Or how else would anybody read such a completely stupid post ?

When will people learn wear the [email protected]@[email protected] helmet it's the law .

 

whether the it's the law or not should be irrelevant, common sense says wear a helmet - especially in thailand and dont drink and drive/ride.

 

it is sad when some one dies but we have to be thankful no other road user or pedestrian was injured or killed.
