The on-line version of this tragedy is that the deceased "may have been on his phone" though they offer no proof.

Check "activity" on the phone at the time of the crash? Not too hard is it?

RIP Michael. No reporting about the time this incident happened to substantiate, or not, the asleep at the wheel theory.

I don't think it was day time. Also I'm not sure it's good to drive a van at that she. 

It seems to me the van is same age as Michael

Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere. but the Daily Mail has an article which provides more info on the accident and the victim.

He is actually from Woking, Surrey. A common error when someone looks at a UK passport is to pick up on the 'Northern Ireland' element and use that as the home country.

Seems he was a retired doctor, well to do and with property interests in central Bangkok. His wife is of a similar age and is noted as having high society connections.

RIP.
