"Grisly" death of a teen on a motorcycle on her way to a funeral

Fact is she had no license or protective gear. She was riding illegally and had little or no road sense or situational awareness. Yes, it is very sad, but she should not have been on that bike in the first place.

How do you know any of this?

Did you know the victim?

Were you there?

Or more bad taste, no empathy, typical TV supposition?

Jeez.

RIP to the young girl and love and sympathy to her heartbroken family.

It's possible that the truck driver didn't even know he'd hit anything, might have felt like just a bump in the road.

Its also possible that the Truck Driver ( if it was him that killed the Lass ) was as pissed as a Fart

RIP Young Girl.

    Very sad news, Nhoo. RIP. 

The truck drivers probably didn't feel the collision.

 

Sorry, a repeat.

I hope they clean-up the spray paint after the bike's removed... it might be mistaken for graffiti....

RIP young lady.

Someone gets killed and there is always someone who wants to nit pick every stupid detail as if it really makes a difference. As things go in Thailand she had probably been riding for a number of years. Yes, I know illigal.

You are right of course, but let's think for a minute, how would half the population get around or go to school if the laws were totally enforced, in my village the kids go to school from about 10 years old on bikes as they have no one to take them and they share rides, life here is never clear cut.

 

Oh yes, and riding a bicycle is losing face, isn't it?

Could you please point me to the fact she had no licence as I only read the Thai Rath link and I must have missed that info somehow.

 

Age for a motorcycle licence here is 15 years and the girl was that age A helmet is of little use when your guts are ripped out and I don't know of any that protect against a semi wheel running over your head.

At 15 years old you can ride a motorbike up to 110cc, there are Hondas with 110cc engines, right? We don't know if she had a licence or not.

Where I grew up we used a bicycle. Good way to get to school and keep fit at the same time.

  Maybe you should read it again:  quote:   "Her Honda Wave with damage to the rear was nearby"

 

   Damage to the rear of her bike means she was rear-ended... hit from behind... by another vehicle.. How could the driver of the other vehicle NOT know he hit her..  Do you thing he had a blindfold on?  

  Could he not see he was coming up on somebody in front of him ?

Maybe you should read it again:

 

".....a warning about a motorcycle being hit by a trailer". It sounds to me like she was hit by the rear wheels of the trailer that she was alongside, which would of course cause damage to the rear of the bike, Sherlock!

 

She could well have been in the drivers "blind-spot", If you've ever done any truck driving, as I have, you might know about this.
