A motorbike driver has died after slipping on oil spilled on the road. The woman fell off the motorbike and was crushed by a water truck in Kata last night. Two others motorists also sustained injuries. Police are searching for the truck driver.

 

The incident happened on Patak Road on Kata Hill at 6.50pm last night (Wednesday).

 

Police and emergency responders arrived to find a body of a woman, later identified as 26 year old Natticha Attachewa from Phetchabun in north-central Thailand.

Truck driver may not even know what happened.

Witnesses say the truck stopped 100 metres down the road. They say the driver got out of the truck to inspect the wheels.

He did!

Yeah he inspected the wheels, so does that mean he knows he ran someone over or alternately he might have thought he had a puncture. I understand your scepticism, it isnt typical to stop or render assistance and I think that those drivers are scum of the earth. I was posing the question on the slim chance he might actually have inadvertantly been involved in a collision in a laden water truck.

Lol. Perhaps he woke up from the 'bump' when he run over her.

Natticha’s motorbike slipped on oil on the road. She fell off the motorbike and was crushed by a water truck driving just behind Natticha.

Any mention of looking for the vehicle that dropped the oil, that caused the accident? Or is it just an accumulation of all 999 trucks that passed there, today...

No, she was a young female from another (poorer) province, working as a migrant in affluent Phuket, probably to send money home to support family.

 

Why should anyone be bothered?

 

Ten more will have got off the  overnight bus this morning.
