Pattaya: Foreigner and Thai girlfriend in hospital after motorcycle crash at Jomtien "Bend of Death

Thai caption: Bend of Death

 

Police and rescue services rushed to Jomtien Sai 2 after a foreigner and a Thai woman came off a motorcycle at a bend. 

 

Nongkhran, 35, suffered two broken legs and was found face down next to an unidentified foreigner who was unconscious after the 6 am accident on Saturday. 

 

CPR was given to the foreigner at the scene before both victims were taken to hospital.

 

They appeared to have lost control on their Yamaha T-Max motorcycle and collided with a tree. 

 

77kaoded said that locals have called that stretch of road the "Bend of Death" after a series of accidents where people have died and been injured.

Welcome to Jomtien's Bend of Death.

 

 

Sounds like a 1950's Fairground attraction.

 

 

I suppose putting measures in to slow vehicles down is a bit beyond them, or possibly isn't being done as they'd be ignored and just result in more morons killing themselves and others.

A T-Max is not a toy for the inexperienced. Some people should stick to a Honda Click.

Speed is speed, not difficult, doesn't help if over the limit not to mention reckless

"bend of death".

Oh no.

It's on Jomtien 2nd rd at the fairly new high rise "The Grand" (monstrous twin tower)

Can't tell how often I passed there.

But bend of death????

Every bend can mean death for hools/drunks/racers.

Not excluding that there was 3rd party in the way.

I know of two foreign riders who have been killed on that bend in the last 18 months..

 

Friends of friends.

 

No idea of how many Thai riders/passengers.

 

There may be an increase in the number of accidents there now that they have removed the roller-coaster effect after the recent re-surfacing of Sai Song Jomtien

Looks harmless in that photo. Maybe different if drunk and speeding?

Thanks for pinpointing this particularly wide, even, well-illuminated, clearly warning signed, divided carriageway's 'bend of death'.

Well I have hidden the fact that it is "downhill" before the bend in southern direction.

So another chance to "get the best out of" the little racing machine :whistling:

"Downhill": not really alpine but we are in Thailand, so....
