An American man and a Thai woman were killed when he lost control of his powerful motorbike at a curve on a Rayong road and hit the sidewalk, sending both flying off the bike into a concrete barrier.

 

The Ban Chang police station said the accident happened in early hours of Tuesday on the Ban Chang-None Samlae road in Moo 3 village in Tambon Ban Chang in Ban Chang district.

 

Police said (name removed) died instantly when his skull was crushed on impact with the concrete barrier. He was wearing a crash helmet but the speed at which the accident occurred rendered the helmet useless. 

 

His pillion rider was identified as Nadda Kaisorn, 19, from Khon Kaen.

 

Police checked tyre marks at the scene and believe that the American was riding the Kawasaki Z100 motorcycle at a high speed when he lost control at the curve causing the front tyre to hit the pavement.

 

A group of Thai women, who were riding their motorcycles back home from work at a bar, spotted the bodies and called police.

 

They said the American left their bar after midnight and might have been driving back to his hotel in Pattaya.

From that story it appears he had some really bad judgement, and it's fair to suspect that he had something stronger to drink than orange juice in that bar. Anyway, a sad story and very sad for their families. RIP.

Do they wash the vehicular manslaughter charge under the rug b/c he is dead?

 

i would think it would have legal ramifications in awards to the innocent victim...

Please pay attention readers. We have a lot of false information and speculation in the above the story and the comments section .

 

The Canadian man not American, Joseph Villeneuve. Was 43 years old. His girlfriend of 2 years now. Mid twenties. They both knew the streets well and were visiting her friends that night at local restaurant, then onto a local bar. Joseph spoke of his love for his Thai friend in very high regard and respect. To cheapen someones love ,friendship and there intentions without any of the facts . Is absolutely wrong . Please pay your respects and move along. 

 

Positive thoughts and facts only moving forward during the family’s mourning process. 

 

 

 

Thank you Hopper999 for giving us the background information and for correcting the factual errors in the OP. Much appreciated.

 

i agree some of the comments were speculative, however on a public forum it is not unreasonable to make some comments other than just offering commiserations to both families.

 

He was driving a very powerful bike, and you say he knew the streets well. I guess that, as a proper biker, he was wearing a good quality helmet, and not one that cost 200 baht from TescoLotus.

 

Yet, despite the hemet ‘... his skull was crushed on impact with the concrete barrier ... [and so] the speed at which the accident occurred rendered the helmet useless.’ 

 

For me that comment in the OP is both shocking in sad. There is more that I could say about the accident, especially as he had his girlfriend of 2 years on the back of the bike, but I appreciate that you are grieving for the loss of your two friends, so I will keep my thoughts to myself.

 

RIP to both Joseph Villeneuve and Nadda Kaisorn.
