Three young bikers were killed in an accident on a highway in Suphanburi province.

 

Sriprajan Police Station in Suphanburi was informed about the road accident on Sunday (August 9) on Highway No. 340 Chai Nat–Suphan Buri in Wangnamsub subdistrict.

 

Ronnachai Wongsudin, 20, and Warakorn Intharajorn, 22, died on the spot while the third victim, Apirak Phoreun, 29, was rushed to Sriprajan Hospital, but later succumbed to his injuries.

Witnesses reportedly told officials that the deceased were riding motorcycles along with the “Two-Wheel Lady” biker groups, who were on their way home from a merit-making trip to a temple in Sing Buri province.

 

“The three bikes accelerated to make the green light at the Sam Koh intersection, when a six-wheel truck, which was towing another bus, crossed their path,” said a witness. “The towing rope was quite long and possibly the bikers were unable to see it from a distance, causing them to violently hit the rope, sending the riders flying on to the road.”

Sakon Wutthichai, 48, the truck driver, reportedly told officials that he was driving the truck from Ang Thong to Ayutthaya, while towing the bus that was carrying employees of a factory, as it had run out of gas.

 

Police are reviewing CCTV footage to determine the cause of accident.

I seen this on the morning news. I didnt pay much attention, but it looked like someone was <deleted> with the motocy gangs making noise, so they sat a trap for them, by streching a cable across the road! But guess it was just a normal accident, with someone not thinking!

Many a Thai succumbs to their obsession of making a green light.

The proverb 'more haste, less speed' needs to be taught here ASAP.

I have seen a similar thing here on Samui, at night time, many years ago. A very long bamboo pole (very, very long - for dislodging fruit from trees) with a guy at the front and another at the back - both on motorbikes. Both driving one handed.

Guy on the front has the green traffic light and wobbles slowly through. Guy on the back wobbles along (both turning right) but the light had changed.

Truck driver sees the lights change and does his F1 start, not seeing the bamboo pole.

Luckily both bikers survived.

The Country, and Bus Companies should invest in large capacity Tow Trucks.  It is never a good idea to tow a vehicle by rope or cable.  The truck tow er and bus company should be found at fualt.  Another senseless accident caused by the lack of leadership of the Thai Government.  Will they ever show their citizens that they care.
