From the original article: 

 

“Also, what we can confirm is that no helmets were found at the scene. Other than that, all other details we are still investigating,” Capt Somkiet said."

That have been publicised....

Yep, especially out in the provinces.

Thailand kills off staggering numbers of foreigners annually.

I used to get all the gossip from Isaan women returning to BKK after Songkran holidays.

Do you think the lack of proper public transport on Phuket could have anything to do with the high road fatality statistics here?

She was the lady described as 5 months pregnant, so perhaps the unborn child still has a chance.

 

As the road has a center divider I initially thought this must have involved a "ghost" rider.   However, it's now reported the Ducati collided with the rear of the scooter, presumably at a much greater speed.
