yet cars come flying through there at ridiculous speeds all the time, this guy probably being one of them

Particularly if the lights just went red, that is what they are focused on!

I am trying to make sense of this accident and can't.

 

Claimed - turning down a soi which would be a left turn or indeed a right turn depending on from where

Truck hits motorbike I assume on the left side in all senarios 

Right leg severed ?

 

Maybe the rider was on the motorbike backwards

Is it actually possible to enjoy a leisurely ride here anymore without being on full alert like a war zone?

without cctv, its impossible to pinpoint blame

You are exactly right. I pass that junction all the time, and every time you do without fail you can see someone driving irresponsibly and recklessly.

Such things as:

Driving through a red light.

Speeding.

Illegal U turns.    etc etc etc

Which probably means that he was traveling way too quickly and not keeping a safe distance between himself and other traffic. His excuse is almost a confession of guilt.

At that junction traffic coming from Thepprasit has to cross four lanes to get to the Khaotalo turn, yet cars come flying through there at ridiculous speeds all the time, this guy probably being one of them. I hope Mr. Yun is insured and makes a full a recovery as possible.

How the hell can he make a FULL recovery ????  His bloody leg was ripped off.  You can wish as much as you want but he will only have one leg from now on.

I can't figure out by the description what really happened here, but if I make a left turn onto a dual carriageway and have to make a right turn shortly afterwards, I'll instead carry on to the next u-turn and come back at it. No sense in trying to quickly cross three or four lanes of traffic in this place.
