A Norwegian tourist died Sunday evening when the motorbike he was riding crashed into another bike that cut into his path on a Chiang Rai road, police said.
 

Police said Ing McNus Bartholl (not official spelling), 29, was killed in the accident, which occurred in front of the Rajabhat Chiang Rai University in Muang district at 5.30pm.

 

Two Thai men on the other motorcycle were severely injured. Neither was carrying any ID so police have yet to identify them as they recover from their injuries at Chiang Rai Hospital.

 

Police said the Norwegian tourist was riding a large Kawasaki motorcycle with a Bangkok license plate from Mae Chan to Muang district when the other motorcycle, apparently wanting to make a u-turn at the spot, cut in front of him, resulting in the crash.

 

The tourist entered the kingdom on September 11 via the Chiang Khong district border checkpoint and has been staying in Chiang Rai’s Muang district.

If one believes in Buddhist afterlife, they might become worms.

The same motorbike with a front view.

Knowing it was not a collision with a car but with another motorbike, leads me to believe it wasn't going all that slow.

Studying both photos, there does not appear to be a loose helmet lying in the vicinity of the bike. Perhaps he was taken to the morgue still wearing it. RIP.

Rip to the victim but shouldn't the police or press trying to report correct names or hide them completely as it doesn't have any value to the reader anyway.
I am quite sure his middle name is Magnus and not McNus as in the news article.
