Pattaya Pol.Maj. Suriya Wariwong was notified of the incident, at 5 AM, on August 6. The accident happened in front of Luk Gaew Café, Pattaya 3rd Road. A police team and Sawang Boriboon Rescue hurried to investigate the incident.

At the scene, police found the dead body of a Thai woman, lying on the footpath, wearing a pink shirt and jean shorts. She had sustained extensive wounds all over her body. She also had a severe head wound and her neck was broken. Scattered on the road were a black helmet and parts of the motorbike and a pickup. The Chonburi-registered licence plate of the pickup truck, No. 3721, had also fallen in the vicinity of the accident.

The wreck of a black Yamaya Nuvo motorbike, apparently belonging to the deceased, was lying 200 metres away from the incident, in the middle of the road, in front of a fishing park on Pattaya 3rd Road. Police found a wallet under the motorbike seat and the I.D. card of Miss Sumalee Sirisima (28), from Udonthani, who they presumed was the dead woman, which police kept as evidence. Police then took Miss Sumalee’s body to Banglamung Hospital to be kept for later identification by relatives.

A witness told police they had seen a woman riding her motorbike in the early morning of August 6, heading towards North Pattaya. A bronze Izusu pickup truck had then apparently approached at speed and had crashed into the back of the motorbike, killing the woman instantly. The truck driver, however, did not stop and dragged the motorbike 200 metres along the road, until it fell off, the truck driver then sped away, heading for North Pattaya. Police immediately issued an alert, but no trace of the pickup truck driver was found. However, because police had the evidence of the licence plate of the pickup truck the owner could be readily identified and would face arrest, being charged with causing a death and failing to either report the incident or to await police.
