Pattaya – During the early morning hours on 11 February 2008, Pattaya (Dongtan Branch) Inspector, Police Lieutenant Colonel Tailerd Luepue was informed of two horrendous accidents that resulted in three fatalities. In the first collision, two Thai, male motorbike riders succumbed after crashing into each other at high speeds. In the second incident, a female, Thai motorbike rider died after colliding with a large truck.

After receiving the report regarding the first accident, at about 3:40am, police rushed to Theppasit Road, Soi 7, near Kungten Karaoke, Moo 12, Banglamung. At a curve in the road, authorities found the body of Mr. Jakpetch Janpowpanow (24), which was wedged to his black, Yamaha Nuovo motorbike, license no. 280, Nakorn Rachasrima. His body had sustained multiple traumas, including several fractures to his face and head. Mr. Jakpetch had worked at the Foodmart shop on Tappraya Road, adjacent to View Talay Codominium and across from Grand Condotel.

Nearby was the body of Mr. Tinnakorn Tantimar (23), whose injuries had included a broken neck; and large and deep wounds on his body, face, arms and legs. His green Honda Wave motorbike was wrecked and lay near his body. According to witnesses, there was one passenger on each bike. They had already been taken to the hospital by Sawang Boriboon Rescue.

After questioning friends of the deceased and other witnesses, police pieced together what had occurred. Apparently, Mr. Jakpetch (the first victim), and his friends, had been enjoying themselves at Kungten Karaoke, about one hundred meters from where the accident occurred. When they left, Mr. Jakpetch rode his motorbike and his friend, Mr. Kai, sat behind him on the pillion. The two men, who were apparently drunk, headed toward Soi Kowtalow. However, as Mr. Jakpetch was rounding the curve, Mr. Tinnakorn and his passenger were speeding on their motorbike toward Mr. Jakpetch’s bike. Because of the sharp curve and the high speed of both motorbikes, they were unable to avert a head on collision. The two motorbike riders died instantly; and their two passengers were seriously injured.

Twenty minutes later, at 4am, Police Lieutenant Colonel Tailerd Luepue rushed to the scene of, yet, another accident, which was called in by a witness. This accident occurred on Sukhumvit Road, near Soi Chaiyapruk 2, in the direction of Sattahip. At the scene, police and Sawang Boriboon Rescue workers found the body of Miss Feungfah Ya Narom (23), from 28 Moo 7, Nacum, Srimeungmai, Ubon Rachathani, lying face up on the road. Her body had also suffered many injuries and was soaked with blood. Ten meters away, her green Honda Wave motorbike, license no. 697, Rayong, was overturned on the road. It had a scratch on its right side.

Police interviewed a witness, Mr. Pokawin Jinyee (54), a motorbike taxi rider, whose queue is in the Walking Street area. According to Mr. Pokawin, as he was taking a customer to the Ambassador City Hotel, he saw a truck passing the victim’s motorbike. The truck brushed against the bike, which fell over, throwing Miss Feungfah against the road. She died immediately. The cowardly truck driver sped off. Mr. Pokawin was unable to identify the truck or the driver because he was about one hundred meters from where the accident occurred.

Authorities sent the bodies of the three victims to the hospital for forensic examination and contacted the relatives of the deceased.
