Pattaya – Kiwi flees from fatal road crash

A New Zealand national is wanted by Police after he was involved in a fatal road crash which left a South Pattaya Motorbike Taxi Driver dead.

Just after 2.30am Pattaya Police were called to Soi Diana Inn in front of the Diana Inn Hotel where rescue workers were attending to the taxi driver, Khun Priyadar aged 53 who is based on Walking Street. He was not breathing and was being given CPR. He was rushed to Hospital but was pronounced dead-on-arrival.

Police spoke with Khun Sumaree aged 32 who claimed she was on the back of a bike belonging to a New Zealander and the pair were on their way to Soi Neun Plab Wan in East Pattaya. She claimed the pair had met earlier in the night and she was unaware of the exact location of the man’s house.

Both bikes collided head-on and despite the fact it was a fairly low-speed collision it is thought the taxi driver fell awkwardly and may have broken his neck. Police will wait for the results of a postmortem examination to confirm the exact cause of death.

As soon as the crash occurred the foreign man decided to leave his companion on the street (and a gentleman, too) and drove off at-speed from the crash scene on his Honda Click motorbike displaying a red number-plate.

Police are now analyzing Security Camera images from the surrounding area as they hunt for the New Zealander.

personal thought:

IF foreigners want to do ‘stupid-ass shit’, I wish they would do it at home, instead of coming here. I mean hell, the Thai people are very capable of doing ‘stupid-ass-shit’ themselves.

 ‘Pattaya – Unconscious Drunk Driver causes traffic chaos’

A busy intersection on the Central Pattaya Road close to Big C Extra was brought to a standstill on Saturday AFTERNOON by a suspected drunk driver who appeared to have fallen into an unconscious state due to severe intoxication, as he waited at traffic lights.

Traffic Police stationed nearby realized there was a problem when car horns were heard for more than 5 minutes inside Soi Yumet at the side of Big C Extra. A silver Toyota Vios failed to pull away at the green light which caused a traffic jam. For more than 20 minutes officers and members of the public were banging the car windows and tried to rouse the unconscious driver, later named as Khun Pronchai aged 22.

There was some concern that he had suffered some form of illness which rendered him unconscious and it was decided by Police to force entry to the car to investigate. As the passenger door opened a distinct odor suggested that alcohol had a part to play in the incident. Khun Pronchai could not be roused and a Traffic Police Officer took control of the vehicle and drove it along with its unconscious driver to Pattaya Police Station where he was later charged with being drunk in-charge of a motor vehicle.
