Have a look at his You Tube page Sun Fruit Dan and see that he may not be corky but he's an insensitive moron and more important a scary individual. 

Have just had a look at his videos on You Tube - I have now seen another side to the man - my apologies.

An odious mummy's boy.

On the one hand he berates anyone who views him in a negative way, brushing their genuine emotions and feelings away. On the other, he uses her death to raise money for his legal case.

One moment, crocodile tears to invoke our emotion to send him money for his legal defence, then suddenly a change and it's all about the money.

Sorry Danny, but you don't get to choose how people see you. Especially when so soon after the incident, you uploaded a video I Don't Care About Peoples Opinion Of Me!

 

As to the car braking suddenly, I see no evidence of that in this CCTV footage: https://www.farang-deaths.com/wp-content/uploads/5c8db114.mp4

Take some responsibility man.

 

 

I'm clearly missing something as I can't see the accident at all from your link.

 

The guy involved only diminished my sympapthy with his facebook videos... but it still seems likely to have been a tragic accident.

It's on the other side of the road, at around twenty four seconds in.

I only watched the beginning of his first video after the accident - and it made me cringe...

 

Nonetheless, it was clearly a typical accident.

 

Reckless driving?  I can't see it as anything other than an accident - despite the accused's horrendous video :sad:.

I agree with you. But there are accidents and there are accidents. He had on board the woman he supposedly loved who was carrying his unborn child. Yet in traffic he is riding at a speed that it was necessary to take the evasive action he describes? Me?  Of course I would not be riding a bike in such circumstances and certainly not at the speed he was clearly doing. This of course has been noted by others. Any of us who ride bikes in Thailand ride defensively and consider all else on the roads as fools. That's how I was taught. It seems in videos posted and now removed he fancied himself as a boy racer and sadly a young life was lost.

Ya gotta feel sorry for the poor guy.  Could happen so easily in the blink of an eye.   I have a full Thai MC licence and we own one for round the farm & over the road for pump switches etc.  That is my limit.

I can't see it either, and agree entirely with your comment - whatever you think of the guy, I don't think he did it on purpose.

Then look properly. Other side of the road at around twenty four seconds. There is no sudden stop by the white pickup in front. Just the normal ebb and flow of traffic.

I still can't see it, but go back to my earlier comment about 'bike riders having to keep checking their rear view mirrors.  One glance at the rear view mirrors can result in having to suddenly brake when the vehicle in front brakes unexpectedly.

Utterly ridiculous and unnecessary. The same standards are not applied across the board (Red bull a-hole, Praewa, Anna Reese,drunken ChMai cyclist killer, and the pickup driver fined1000 baht for mowing down 2 cyclists while leaning down to get his hat off the floor).

All I see here is a pathetic flexing of muscles and abuse of power.

I wonder what investigation was undertaken to reach a conclusion of reckless driving. I suspect minimal at best.

 

An utter disgrace imo (the singling out of certain people i mean)

If this is really the statement he gave, a lawyer would have told him to leave the last sentence out so they didn't have to lay a reckless charge. "I tried to stabilise it but I wasn’t able to.It’s two people on a scooter, it’s a very difficult thing to do".

This is the white pickup that he claimed braked suddenly. The truck is in the adjoining lane. His bike is nowhere to be seen in the screen capture. So he was just going too fast to be able to stop in time.  Reckless driving.

"Then look properly."? There's no need for that type of arrogant comment!

 

However, from what I see now, the white pick up did brake, but "what happened next" is obscured, but it would seem to suggest that the motor cyclist was at fault.

What else can I tell you if we are both looking at the same video? I even narrowed it down to the time and location.

 

There was no sudden braking of the white pickup. In fact the silver pickup was the first to brake and the white pickup reacted normally to the situation.

 

It's either that Danny was going too fast to react to traffic conditions or that he tried  to manoeuvre past the pickup in his impatience and panicked when he realised that he couldn't make it.

He is wholly responsible for the incident.

I agree with this - which is why I only ever tried it once, and only then because others had assured me its easy to ride a scooter with a pillion passenger.....

 

Yes, its easy when travelling at a reasonable speed - but far more difficult when moving slowly.

 

Perhaps this should result in a law against pillion passengers on the back of scooters?  Personally, I'd prefer not to regulate this way, but we all have different ideas about laws and regulations.

Shame on you BiB, you let Thais get away with murder in the form of reckless driving in cases FAR worse than this, but when a farang is involved you have no qualms in locking him up, leaving a 5 year old now without a mother and a father. This man had been through enough, his life is in tatters, and now you throw the book at him when there wasn't much 'recklessness'  in this case as it is. I forgot, he isn't minted and you didn't get a brown envelope on your desk. Sort it out Thailand, you are a shambles when it comes to 'justice' 

So in your opinion the consequences dished out in other cases should reflect favourably on this jerk in the OP.

 

He was working in Thailand illegally and not proficient in riding a motorbike on Thailand`s roads, therefore he caused his own shambles and tragically destroyed two lives in the process of his being here under false pretences and gambling not only with his own life but also with the lives of other people in what to him was probably only an adventure.

 

Sadly, the guy is a loser and made those close to him losers as well, as would anyone who becomes involved with jerks like him.
