It is indeed a Sad Event no Question, so is from what i read here is Hanging the Driver without  knowing the facts.

The minibus driver hit him from behind, is that not a fact? So stop posting such nonsense.

How did it come to hit him from behind?

I don't know, did you not read the report? That's what it said, would it really have said that if that was not the case?

WHO estimates the traffic death total for Thailand in 2016 was around 22,500.  Per 100,000 people, it's one of the highest rates in the world.

Those figures don't look right....🤔

His death is, obviously, very unfortunate and, as this is a one-sided report from a Scandinavian publication, it's safe to assume, without question, that the minibus driver was to blame totally and the Dane on the motorbike made no adverse contribution to the accident.

 

Or not.

That's my point, you don't know what happened or who was to blame, do you?

 

I'm not disputing that he was hit from behind, I'm asking how did that come to happen?   Nowhere did it say that the minibus drove directly into him from behind with no contribution from the rider.

and you do know what happened, do you? I am only going by what the report said, the Danish guys friend said in the report that he was riding his motorbike and was hit from behind.

I will repeat it again just for your benefit, "the report said the motorbike was hit from behind". Got it?

No, I do not know what happened, that's why i have not apportioned blame, unlike some others!  How did he happen to get hit from behind was my point.  Got it?

RIP ... another road casualty based on poor driving

Yes, but whose poor driving?  That has not been made clear yet everyone here is blaming the bus driver.  He may well have been at fault but there were two parties in this accident.

I cannot comprehend what motivation anyone would have to just want to believe a higher figure.
