Chotchuang Mongkokthanayuth, detective officer of Pattaya police station. Police went to check the scene with rescuers from Sawanboriboon foundation Pattaya.

At the scene, a crowd of residents and tourists were gathering around. Rescuers tried to give the victim CPR before sending him to Pattaya Memorial hospital. The man died from his injuries and was identified as Mr. Preeda Kotmuang, 53 years old, living in Nongprue, Banglamung.

The victim was a taxi motorbike driver-for-hire in south Pattaya. Nearby was his fallen bike, a black Honda Wave 100. The bike was severely damaged in the front, with its wire basket crushed.

Police questioned a woman who had been a passenger on the other motorbike. She was identified as Ms. Sumaree Siripol, 32 years old. She told police she was sitting in the passenger seat of a red Honda Click, but did not know the color or number of its license plate.

She was sitting behind a foreigner from New Zealand. They had earlier been drinking in the bar before riding the motorcycle, and were headed to Nernplabwarn. She said the New Zealander had gotten drunk at the bar.

When they were riding on Soi Diana, the New Zealander crashed his motorbike hard into another motorbike coming from the opposite direction. The impact caused Ms. Sumaree to fall off the motorbike to the ground. In the resulting chaos, the foreigner drove away on his motorbike and left her behind.

After checking and investigating the scene thoroughly, police will follow up to track down the foreigner to prosecute.
