On 15 January 2008, at 6am, Pattaya Inspector, Police Lieutenant Colonel Chaiporn Thongnapien, was notified that there had been a horrendous accident resulting in a fatality. A Russian motorbike rider died after speeding and crashing into an electric pole. Police and Sawang Boriboon Rescue rushed to the beginning of Pattayaland Soi 1 (Pattaya Soi 13/3), at Pattaya Second Road, Moo 10, Nongprue, where they found the body of Mr. Andrey Kartunov (31), lying face-up on the road.

The shirtless victim was clad only in shorts. His left eye was ragged; his neck was broken and a lot of blood was coming from his mouth and nose. His motorbike, a blue Yamaha YKF 500 CC, license NgorKor Wor-5, Chonburi, was about twenty meters from his body. It had been badly damaged as a result of bouncing off the electric pole.

Police found Mr. Kartunov’s short-sleeved shirt and a pair of sport shoes on the road, not far from his body. A search of his pockets yielded his ID card and some cash, which the police kept as evidence.

According to witnesses, both tourists and local residents, Mr. Kartunov was speeding, on his motorbike, from Khao Pratumnak , heading north on Second Road toward Central Pattaya Road. While he was waiting at the red light at the intersection with Pattaya South Road (near Wat Chaimongkol), Mr. Kartunov, who was apparently quite intoxicated, took his shirt off to show off his physique to women who were also waiting for the light to change.

Mr. Kartunov revved up the engine, apparently to increase the volume of the cycle noise, and bolted straight through the intersection, while the light was still red. He sped along Second Road for five hundred meters and crashed into an electric pole. He hit the pole with great impact and fell onto the footpath. He died immediately.

Authorities sent Mr. Kartunov’s body to Banglamung Hospital for an autopsy and also contacted the Russian Embassy.
