Young Polish Woman Dies in Phuket Motorbike Accident

Chalong –

A 33-year-old female Polish rider died after she crashed her motorbike and slid under a trailer truck in Chalong, Phuket.

A local rescue team reported they were notified of the accident on Thursday (May 4th) on the Chao Fa West Road in front of a housing estate in Chalong, Mueang Phuket.

They arrived at the scene to find the damaged motocross motorbike on the road. Nearby, they found the body of a female rider who was identified by the Chalong Police as a 33-year-old female Polish national (The Phuket Express is withholding her name pending embassy and family notification.) Her helmet that she was wearing was totally crushed as well as her head and body.

The trailer truck driver, Mr. Boonnah Pinnarat, 49, was waiting at the scene for law enforcement near his truck. He was uninjured.

The Chalong Police told the Phuket Express that CCTV footage shows the Polish motorbike rider was trying to overtake the truck from the left side before she lost control, crashed, and slid under the truck.
