A trip to Pattaya turned to horror for a group of young people from Bang Saen. 

 

The five people were on three motorcycles going home to the seaside resort when a 22 year old woman riding alone on the bike in the middle collided with the back of a ten wheel truck.

 

It was parked sticking out into the road, the driver was asleep and the rear lights were not working. 

 

Urairat Suksawaeng, 22, a recent bachelor's degree graduate from a Chonburi university, was dead at the scene, reported Ruk Siam News. 

 

Her friend on a following bike 50 meters behind was the first to come across the grisly scene. 

 

The friend said they were speechless. All the four friends were in floods of tears.

 

The victim had been working at a convenience store after graduating and was waiting for more permanent employment. 

 

The accident happened near the Ban Na bridge in Nong Prue at 3.30 am on Monday. 

 

Police arrested the driver of the truck, Manop, 48. He said he had stopped after battery trouble and was asleep waiting for someone to come and help him. 

 

Police noted that the rear lights were not working on the truck.

Own fault then.

I don't know..maybe she swerved to avoid a dog or other obstacle in the road..sometimes the roads are rutted due to overloaded trucks that can easily pull a bike off course,distracted  or blinded by an oncoming vehicle with very bright lights ?  who knows.. I wouldn't lay the blame totally on the broken down truck driver..he probably could have done more to prevent the accident though its hindsight..we all could/would do things differently if we knew the outcome in advance.

This is a new one. If battery kaput just how could any lights function??

If the engine is running the alternator can provide power for the lights..

it probably depends on what the truck was? - Diesel/Petrol or CNG 

 

only the Diesel engine could have kept running if the battery was totally stuffed
