PHUKET – March 3,2014; Police, who were quickly on the scene, two kilometres east of the Heroines Monument, controlled a mob of local people who, on seeing Trisukon Lohplodpai, 24, emerge from the wreck of her car with a mobile phone to her ear, were all ready to give her a very hard time.

In the ditch police found Ms Trisukon’s badly damaged white Toyota Vios, a red Yamaha motorbike and the body of the bike’s rider, Panthep Suebsode, 28.

Witnesses told police that the car and the motorbike were coming the same way, from Pa Khlok heading west. The car, travelling at speed, slammed into the back of the bike then, out of control, dragged it and Mr Panthep 100 metres across the opposing lane and into the ditch.

Ms Trisukon climbed out of the wreck with her phone to her ear, mightily offending friends and relatives of the dead man, who accused her of using her phone while driving, causing the accident.

As they gathered to attack her, police arrived and managed to control the situation.

Pol Lt Chatree Chuwichian from Thalang Police Station told The Phuket News, “The woman is now in Mission Hospital because she has a stomach injury. The doctor said she had to stay there overnight.

“When she has recovered, we will charge her with careless driving causing death.”
