Photographer Wichak Chittawitti, 26, was killed in a fatal accident on Vibhavadi expressway exit in Bangkok after ramming his motorcycle into a semi-trailer truck and being run over by five vehicles in the early hours of this morning, October 2.
Police from the Vibhavadi Police Station arrived at the scene after being alerted of the incident and found the deceased’s black motorcycle with heavy damage on its front and scratches all over the vehicle.
According to an onlooker, who wasn’t named to the press, Wichak was seen driving at a high speed and accelerating until crashing into a trailer truck. The driver was immediately thrown from the vehicle and spotted lying unconsciously on the road.
The onlooker then stopped his car and rushed to the scene, trying to alert other passing vehicles about the man. Unfortunately, the motorcyclist, who was reportedly dressed in all black, was killed after continuously being run over by at least five vehicles, including another trailer truck, due to the reported lack of light in the area.
The victim’s friend, who was alerted of the incident on social media, later arrived at the scene and told the police that Wichak was a photographer for a famous Thai acting teacher and was on the way to his home after hanging out with him and his friends at a restaurant nearby where the unfortunate incident occurred.
Initially, Vibhavadi police will review CCTV footage and the deceased’s helmet camera for evidence and will alert the five drivers who were reportedly running over the body of the motorcyclist for further interrogation and for legal proceedings.
