PATTAYA:--A 45-year-old hotel employee was killed when her motorcycle was struck by a pickup driven by a teenager in Najomtien.

 

Marisa Suasor, 45, died at the scene of the May 23 accident at the Ban Ampur U-turn. Her body was still impaled on the grill of the Toyota Vigo when police arrived.

 

Motorbike passenger Wimol Huayyai, 60, suffered severe injuries and was transported to Wat Yannasang Worarawihan Hospital.

 

Vigo driver Amornthep Pongpanit, 19, told police the motorbike turned into his path while making a U-turn. Police are investigating whether to file criminal charges against him.

I know this is Thailand so anything is possible, but the photo looks like both are on the wrong side of the road.

The car behind could be an insurance clerk or just there to show oncoming traffic of the accident.

It appears to be quite squarely impaled into the front of the pick-up. I agree U-Turns seem to be quite the source of many an accident, but without them you will find more riding the wrong way on the carriageways.

Close them and they'll start making their own u-turn paths. Plenty of Creativity and innovativeness out there...

I have seen a number of areas where motorcyclists routinely cross over the central 'reservation' hump (A.K.A. the median).  It reduces their trip by a few metres.
