Thai Rath reported that a German man on a 500 cc Honda was killed in a motorcycle smash with a pick-up in downtown Chiang Mai this morning. 

 

A witness appeared to blame the motorcyclist.

 

At 1.45 am Pol Capt Kasemsit Torkan found the Honda Rebel bike had hit a parked pick-up after it collided head on with a Toyota Hilux Revo.

 

The motorcycle rider was dead in the middle of the road. ID said that he was German national Jan Single who was aged about 30-35, said Thai Rath. 

 

He had multiple injuries. A ziplock bag of marijuana was found in a pocket of his jeans. 

 

The Revo driver Sutthawee Seasatbun, 26, stopped 100 meters from the dead body, said he was driving along Mahidol Road when the bike hit him head on. He was unable to brake in time. 

 

Capt Kasemsit said that a witness told him that he had seen the German park his bike at Seven-11 (Pa Daet branch). He looked drunk.

 

He rode out into the traffic and was hit head on as he turned. 

 

An autopsy has been ordered at Maharat Chiang Mai Hospital and relatives have been informed.

Complacency, and at 1:45am perhaps fueled by the booze, such a common killer here in Thailand. 

 

Another unnecessary loss of life on Thailands roads. 

 

Not sure how the Ganja relates unless he was also under the influence of that further exacerbating his complacency and lack of awareness of the traffic around him (witness said he pulled out into the road without looking and was hit by the vehicle).

 

Was he wearing a helmet? if he wasn't, could it have made a difference?

Craniocerebral injury is the major cause of death in a motorcycle accident. With multiple injuries, he could have died anyway or been severely disabled.

 

RIP

Cased closed. A witness said he “looked” drunk and a bag of ganja was found in his pocket. 

 

No need for toxicology tests here. 

They wrote that the bike hit the pickup head on and as we can see from the pictures the bike is damaged mostly at the front. So it looks like the bike was going in the wrong direction.

Of course the pickup driver may have been way too fast and playing with a phone (stopped 100 meters later), but it was still the motorbike driver's own fault, drunk or not.

eh? if the 'reporter' had access to the information on the ID, as the article implies, why don't they know his age? bizarre 'reporting'.

His ID only shows the year according to the gregorian calender, maybe the reporter doesn't know how to calculate the victims age from this, so he just guessed instead.
