His relatives and friends told The Pattaya News that Mr. Chayarob was driving back home after playing video games at his friends house. Chayarob’s home was literally opposite the accident scene and he was almost home.

His friends who were following behind him saw the accident take place and attempted to free Chayarob but failed, calling for emergency assistance after. Rescue workers found a deceased Chayarob stuck inside the sedan.
