Police and rescue services called to an area below the Rama 3 bridge yesterday found the body of a 43 year old motorcyclist called Kiatpong. 

 

He had fallen 10 meters from the bridge. On the bridge was his Zoomer-X and there was evidence of scraping on the bridge wall. 

 

He appeared to be a delivery guy as there was a large delivery box on the back of the bike. 

 

Witnesses saw him fall from the bridge. He was killed instantly. 

 

Motorcycles are not allowed on that bridge. 

 

Police later looked at CCTV and saw the rider with one hand on the handlebars and the other holding his phone. 

INN said he was gazing at his phone. 

 

Police are gathering evidence and witnesses to determine if it was an accident just involving the motorcyclist.

 

An autopsy is underway at Chula Hospital.

Am pretty sure we passed that incident just after it happened. My brother in law who was driving pointed out the motorcycle on the bridge, telling us 'not allowed'. No sign of the driver - RIP not a good way to go.
