Foreigner and Thai woman riding superbike seriously injured after colliding with songthaew in Samut Prakan

Samut Prakan –

A foreigner and a Thai female national were rushed to a local hospital after their “big bike” reportedly collided with a songthaew on Sukhumvit Road in the Samrong district of Samut Prakan area yesterday, February 7th.

Motorist Nicholas Eelton, 44, whose nationality was not revealed to the press, was found injured on his head with several wounds on his left knee and shoulder while his passenger, Kanokpan Pholdej, 36, was seriously injured as soon as Samrong police arrived at the scene around 3:30 PM.

The vehicle, identified as a Suzuki Hayabusa superbike with a Bangkok license plate, was found on the end of Soi Sukhumvit 78 and partially damaged from the major crash with the local songthaew, which also had its front bumper distorted.

According to the songthaew driver, the superbike was accelerating at near 100 kilometers per hour as he was making a left turn into the Soi, causing the motorcycle to directly crash into his vehicle.

However, according to another witness, it was said that the motorcycle was driving in the left lane when the public songthaew, that was reportedly driving on the middle lane, made a spontaneous left turn into a nearby Soi, resulting in the shocking crash.

The driver was taken to the local police station for a daily report and further questioning. Meanwhile, nearby CCTV surveillance cameras will be examined to prove either the driver’s or witness’s conflicting statements.
