Video: Hunt on for drunk motorcyclist who mowed down 14 year old "breadwinner" on a bicycle

Police are hunting a motorcyclist who was caught on CCTV in Bang Pakong this morning going the wrong way down a street and hitting a 14 year old boy on his bicycle. 

 

The boy was Worawut Chuthaisong who was described as a breadwinner in his family. He had just done the washing and was also employed cleaning dishes to help to send his siblings aged 5 and 7 to school. 

 

Witnesses said that the motorcycle driver was drunk and after the collision got back on his bike, picked up a man at a "laap" stall and raced off.

 

They couldn't recall the letters on the plate just that it was a Honda Click with the number 8483.

And nobody among these fine witnesses who seemed way more concerned with whether the motorcycle taxi driver was alright than the accident victim (only one of them walked over to the boy) bothered to hold the drunkard and prevent him from fleeing the scene? Outstanding!  

I counted five and a motor cycle rider turned back to help.

Generally absolutely true as other countries people actually care more about others rather than themselves. But hey just get over it 'cos it ain't going to change here anytime soon.

Why do you think that Thais are different to every other nation on Earth ?

Why is it that only Thais do hit and run and no other nationality would do such a thing ?

I counted five people who walked over to help the boy including the motor cyclist who also turned around to help the boy sorry if people thought I meant something other than that,I've seen and attended several accidents and found Thais always generous with assistance.In Australia it's actually illegal to not stop and render assistance and hit and runs are not that uncommon!

The Red Bull family know all about them don't they ?

Once again we must remember the authorities declared that going through red lights and going the wrong way along a road was a minor offense  - Don't think the family of this youth would agree nor would any other sane person. World Class indeed...!!!
