Pattya – On 29 January 2008, at 2pm, Police Lieutenant Colonel Apimook Amnatmunkong, Kong Dong Tan Branch, was notified that a rider of a Harley Davidson motorcycle had collided with a songtaew and into pedestrians who were walking on the side of the road. The rider was killed. There were other serious injuries and property damage as well.

Police and Sawang Boriboon Rescue rushed to the accident scene, on Soi Chaiyapruk 1, opposite Jomtien Beach Paradise Village, Moo 12, Nongprue, Banglamung; where they found Mr. Charet Adwardfox (67), a British national, lying on the road. Mr. Adwardfox sustained multiple injuries, including a fractured skull, and a broken right leg, with the bone protruding. He was rushed to Bangkok Pattaya Hospital. A damaged songtaew taxi, a blue Isuzu D-mag 310, License 20-5372, Chonburi was parked nearby.

The body of Mr. Kelsey Shecbanooke (25), a Canadian, who worked for an oil refinery in Canada, lay on his side, with a broken neck. Mr. Shecbanooke was clad in an orange singlet and gray shorts and a helmet. A search of his person yielded a large amount of cash, which the police took as evidence. The dead man’s Harley Davidson motorcycle was lying on the road about ten meters away.

Mr. Chaiyan Sangkumpar (41), the songtaew driver, residing at 144/37 Moo 5, Naklua, Banglamung, explained that he had parked his vehicle in order to answer a call of nature. Another songtaew went in front of Mr. Shecbanooke’s Harley motorcycle. Mr. Shecbanooke was riding fast and overtook the songtaew in front of him, in the left lane, without noticing Mr. Chaiyan’s songtaew, which was parked in front. At the same time, Mr. Adwardfox, the injured British national, was running across the road from the other side. Mr. Shecbanooke, the motorcycle rider, tried to avoid the pedestrian and the parked songtaew at the same time, but collided with both. The result was Mr. Shecbanooke’s death and Mr. Adwardfox’s serious injuries.

Police will investigate further and inform the Canadian Embassy.
