total scum fleeing the scene, that should be jail time straight away, they always come up with that old rubbish, * i wqas in fear of being lynched * routine

A real fear in many places up country. Having said that, if he turns himself in later then ok... if not, lynching may indeed be an option.

What is it with Thais decamping from scenes? Afraid of being beaten up or seeing ghosts?

Will be difficult to find him deep down in the murky Udon sea.

Years ago a couple I knew were passengers on a Bangkok-Pattaya bus. Bus managed to run over two young girls riding motorcycles. Driver and conductor headed across the adjacent field. Husband asked the wife, what are they doing? She told him that they were "fleeing the scene" just like them and with that she grabbed her husband and flagged down a passing bus. All the other passengers sitting there wondering what was going on.

There do not seem to be any laws in Thailand, regarding fleeing from the scene of a crime. In the US, this guy would be caught, and locked up for a decade or longer. He would lose everything he owned.

To be fair, the driver probably doesn't own anything for him to lose.

Maybe only his time and his life.

 

I'd give you odds that the motorbike operator contributed to his own demise in "motorbike-diseased" Thailand where they are dying like files (45 MB operators/passengers per day).

Why is every poster blaming the truck driver for the accident? No excuse for him to flee the scene but maybe the motorcyclist caused the accident.

Also, driving a bike of any sort in Thailand without wearing the best helmet you can afford is like playing Russian roulette, with three bullets in the chamber. Not smart. Not wise. An act of tempting fate. 

Seeing as gambling is often regarded as an obsession here it's not particularly surprising, plus no critical thinking is used.
