PATTAYA – January 14, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]: a report of a man walking on a footpath being killed by a hit-and-run driver was received by Pol. Anuchet Kartsomboon, detective officer, Pattaya police station, sub-branch Dontal. He went to check the scene with rescuers from Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan foundation Pattaya.

The incident occurred on Sukhumwit Rd., Sattahip inbound, in front of PP Auto Sport, a second-hand car shop at moo 12, Nongprue, Banglamung.

The victim’s body was lying face down in a pool of blood. Many bones in his body appeared to be broken. He was about 30-40 years old, wearing brown trousers and a black-and-white striped shirt. The man had no documents on his person that could identify him. When the police asked the local residents there, no one knew him.

 

A witness told the police that the victim had been walking on the footpath facing oncoming traffic. Then a speeding pickup truck going toward Sattahip crashed violently into his body.

The victim’s body got stuck under the pickup, which dragged him over 100 meters. Then the body was released from under the car and lay in the right lane of the road. So the witness called the police.

 

Rescue officers brought the man’s body to Banglamung hospital, while his relatives are located to take his body for the funeral. The police will continue to question more witnesses to track down the driver to prosecute.
