9th December 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 4.30, Police Lieutenant Anntarot Krongrach, Investigation Official, Pattaya ( sub quarters Kong Tong Taan) Banglamung, Chonburi was notified of a collision involving a car and motorcycle, resulting in 1 injury and 1 fatality. The incident occurred at Sukhumvit 52 (Chularat), in the direction of Chonburi, and Police and rescue foundation personal were dispatched to the scene immediately.

At the scene of the accident officers discovered a green Mitsubishi Lancer (license no.ฐท 8250 Bangkok) suffering from extensive front-end damage. The vehicle had been modified to look like a race car and included an advanced stereo system and also displayed a ‘Utun Motion Racing’ sticker. The driver was identified as Mr. Kriangkrai Chaengsawag, 34, who is suspected of having been speeding before crashing into the back of Mr. Chloempon Ubonphot’s black Honda Fanton motorbike (license no.งขษ 489 Chonburi). The 50 year old motorbike taxi driver, resided at 33 Moo 3 Baan Poti Muang Nakhorn Rachasima, taxi no. 22. He had picked up passengers at Nakhorn Chai air, in the Pattaya area. Both car and motorbike were located some 50 meters from the actual collision point, ending up smashed into the fence of Kriang Charoen Furniture Shop. Mr. Chloempon, received fatal injuries in the collision, including broken arms, legs and a fractured skull, and was lying dead on the street in front of the Furniture Shop.

Mr. Kriangkrai, who was described as being very drunk, was trapped in his vehicle and had received serious injuries. A member of the public kindly helped remove him from the tangled wreck of his vehicle. The rescue foundation medics applied first aid before he was transferred to Banglamung hospital, prior to the arrival of police officers. The police took several detailed pictures for evidential purposes before the body of Mr. Chloempon was also sent to Banglamung hospital.

A report from a traffic police officer who witnessed the accident stated that he was on patrol along Sukhumvit Road on his motorbike when he overtook the motorbike taxi driver, Mr. Chloempon (victim of the accident). Mr. Chloempon was alone on the bike and the officer assumed he was returning to his taxi stand after having dropped off a passenger. The police officer then turned into Soi 52 and after having driven only about 10 meters into the soi he heard the sound of a violent impact. When he looked behind him he saw that a green Lancer had crashed into the back of the motorbike of Mr. Chloempon. The impact of the collision had pushed both vehicles past the entrance of Soi 52 and into the fence of a furniture shop located next to the soi entrance. The motorcycle driver, Mr. Chloempon, died at the scene, whilst the car driver, Mr. Kriangkrai, was not only seriously injured, but also seriously drunk. The officer further added that had he not turned into the soi moments before the impact he could well have been part of the incident and very likely killed as well. It appears the car was being driven erratically and at high speed prior to the accident, with no evidence of any braking at all prior to the collision.

After gathering evidence at the scene the police went to Banglamung hospital to question Mr. Kriangkrai. Even though he had been treated for his injuries, he was still not in any condition to be questioned. It was however ascertained that the driver was indeed very drunk at the time of the accident and also that he was speeding. Therefore it seems clear that Mr. Kriangkrai was the cause of the fatal accident and after he has recovered sufficiently the police will have a number of serious questions for him to answer.
