Thai caption: Repeat accident

 

Sanook reported that Thais online from cycling groups in Chiang Mai were saying goodbye to a well know member of a bike club in the north who was killed on Sunday. 

 

Acting Sub-Lt Suraphon Tasingh, 60, was killed while cycling on the Chiang Mai - San Sai road in the early hours of Sunday morning.

 

He was a member of the "Tigers" of San Sai cycling group. 

 

Sanook reported that he was one of the people injured in 2015 when a drunk university student plowed into cyclists on the Chiang Mai to Doi Saket Road on May 3rd of that year. 

 

The student killed three people and injured two - one of them being Suraphon who had recovered from his injuries and was back in the saddle. 

 

Only to be killed in this second accident.

The actual time is important. Still dark out? It should say where? San Sai is a district not a road....,

 

i ride every Sunday morning in Mae jo or Mae rim areas.....less vehicles than a week day and less alcohol use or should be...

No there was extensive reporting on all those things.   But Thaivisa didn't bother with it; seems they're taking over where the Nation left off, in writing things that raise more questions than they answer.

 * The driver was a local man, driving a sedan car.
 * He stopped after the accident, waiting for authorities and emergency services to arrive.
 * They checked for alcohol, but he was found to be free of alcohol.
 * The family forgave him, it was an unfortunate accident but not unexpected. Sub-Lt Suraphon died doing the thing he loved.

Died doing the thing he loved, what continually getting knocked of his bike

Which states the fact he seemed to put himself in harms by? Riding erractically perhaps? or without due care and attention. or the grim reaper has been waiting since the first time when he got left behind!

I love bicycle riding and have done so for many years in my life.

 

However, I absolutely won't ride on the roadways in Thailand...for all the obvious reasons.

One of the highest per 100,000 people. India and China record more road deaths.
