BANGKOK – April 30, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 5 p.m., a report of a fatality involving a vehicle hitting a traffic light pole was received by Pol. Lt. Voraphong Songsiri, investigation officer, Ladphrao police station.

The incident occurred in front of Bangkapi school, Seri Thai road, Tambon Khlongjan, Amphur Bangkapi, Bangkok. The officers of Ruam Katanyu foundation were sent to the scene along with police.

At the scene, arriving officers found the damaged vehicle on the sidewalk, on the exit side of the road. It was a blue-bronze Thai Rung pickup truck with a Bangkok license plate. The front of the pickup truck got severely damaged, displacing the engine, after the truck collided with the high voltage electricity pole.

In the pickup truck was the body of Mr. Paul Otto Nauberth Rishter, age 71, nationality German. He was wearing a long-sleeve blue shirt with black pants. He had a broken neck and was bleeding a lot from his mouth and nose. The officer sent the corpse to perform an autopsy at the Police hospital.

About 10 meters away was a car that the truck had hit before crashing into the pole, a silver bronze Mitsubishi Lancer. The rear of the vehicle got severely damaged. Standing nearby and waiting for the police was the car’s owner, Mr. Suthep Saehor, age 39, a sales person for a private company.

Mr. Suthep was still shaken by the collision as he described what happened. He said he was driving from The Mall Bangkapi department store toward Seri Thai road.

He was driving on the right lane, when suddenly his car was rear-ended violently by the pickup truck of Mr. Paul, almost causing him to lose control of his car. But he still managed to pull over and park his car on the side of the road

However, the pickup truck of Mr. Paul drove up on the sidewalk and collided with the electric pole with a very loud noise. Then Mr. Suthep hurried to notify the police.

Initially, the officers assumed that Mr. Paul might have been driving at a very high speed, and lost control of his truck at the bridge across the canal. So he could not control his pickup truck and collided with the car ahead of him, and then collided with the electricity pole and died immediately.

However, the officers will call the witnesses that saw the incident to investigate in detail again, and will find the CCTV in the nearby area to find the exact cause of this accident.
