Thai boy left fighting for his life after motorbike crash on Sukhumvit road

At around 2:00am on March 3rd, Pattaya police and emergency services were called to the scene of a road accident involving a single motorbike.

At the scene, police found the body of a 16 year old Thai boy laying motionless in the middle of the road. He had suffered some serious injuries to his body, and was having difficulties breathing.

Paramedics treated him at the scene before declaring it safe enough to transfer him to a local hospital for further treatment. He is said to still be in a critical condition.

Speaking to a local in the area, he told police that it is not the first time the an accident has occurred at the same spot. He complained that the road is still under construction, but there were no clear signs to indicate where to go, or any cautions warning drivers to slow down due to loose bits of debris on the road. This particular accident is thought to have been caused but a bump in the road, left by the ongoing construction. The witness said that he has seen cars hit the bump at speed and actually jump into the air, so it was no surprise to see a motorbike crash after hitting the same bump.

He told police that there should be some clear signage installed ASAP in order to avoid any further incidents.

    no one will listen no one cares But if it involved a back hander it would be sorted out right away.

    Anywhere else in the world common sense would prevail and motorists slow down when on a hazardous road

      Like you say sense should prevail, but we are talking about a 16 year old Thai boy. As young teenagers we all knew everything and thought we were indestructible. We learnt by our mistakes , let’s hope this lad pulls through and gets that chance to learn.

      • Ken Anderson

        Unfortunately, after about the age of 10 – 12 years Thai males seemingly become incapable of learning. Indeed after that age many will actually regress.

          Spot-on as usual Ken.

            It’s o.k Ken has got you to suck out the poison, bend over.

      Is ‘common sense’ really that common? Look at the driving in Russia ?

        The Top 5 Countries with the Most Road Traffic Deaths
        Country Reported Number of Traffic Deaths Death Rate Number of Registered Vehicles
        1 India 105,725 16.8 72,718,000
        2 China 96,611 16.5 145,228,994
        3 United States 42,642 13.9 251,422,509
        4 Russia 35,972 25.2 38,695,996
        5 Brazil 35,155 18.3 49,644,025

        but they are all countries with very large populations
        Thai road deaths are among the highest in the world if you look at each death per 100,000 people

        • pattayhobo

          Why did you post these useless statistics as you have said they do not account for population so why post them at all. If you are going to try to act smart, at least post stats that are meaningful.

          • Jack La Motta

            my posts are no more useless than the crap that you post 😀

        • John

          Last time I could be bothered to google Thailand were #2 in the world for traffic accidents per capita

  • Sly

    Given the numbers of road deaths here the amount people left seriously disabled must be appalling.

    • Jack La Motta

      next time you see people begging with no legs or arms or faces like the Elephant Man you know why!

      • Sly

        Because there is no border wall between here and Cambodia?

        • Jack La Motta

          Trump will get there, give him time

  • Ken Anderson

    This will just be yet another brain dead Thai male.
    Going too fast, and incapable of applying any logical thought to what he is doing.
    Incapable of moderating his behaviour in line with conditions.
    Thank God they don’t have snow and ice on the roads here, just imagine the carnage that would cause.

    • Jack La Motta

      “The road was under construction, but there were no clear signs to indicate where to go, or any cautions warning drivers to slow down due to loose bits of debris on the road. ” so how could he have predicted the road conditions? your comment is harsh and cynical Ken, calling a 16 year old boy a Brain Dead Thai Male! he is just a kid and someones Son, Brother, and friend

      • pattayhobo

        This big mouth Ken just can’t help himself running off with that big fat trap as usual

        • Deadhorse.

          How’s your back?.

          • pattayhobo

            i feel many knives just wanting to be thrown into my back from many two bit loser drunkard beer guzzling old poms

          • Deadhorse.

            You can’t expect to post those comments of yours denigrating everyone and general ranting without retaliation. Tone it down and the backlash may lessen, maybe not. Enjoy.

          • pattayhobo

            backlash lol what some Mongwit like you i’m only just beginning i doubt some old drunk like you on a keyboard has anything in the arsenal to make me tone it down i’m merely defending hard working good Thai folk as you fat Pommy slugs seem to think you can insult them and get away with it . calm down and sit down you’ll just have to get used to me for awhile you have no choice anyhow.

          • Deadhorse.

            I don’t need to make you tone it down, You’re the one sobbing about everyone having it in for you. Never have I criticized the hard working Thais, some are and some are not. I have Thai friends.
            I only drink alcohol on holiday and am not fat.
            Will only laugh at your threats as I’m not due in Pattaya till July and therefore it would be a waste. Keep ranting and trot on.

      • soidog

        We dont predict road conditions! we look ahead to see what’s going on.So by your logic the prevailing driving conditions are not a factor in safe driving? Just looking where you are going and the state of the road is always a good idea.

        • Jack La Motta

          In the uk, we dont predict rain we look at the weather forcast, or if you are an old ships Captain the sky, on UK motorways hazard lights flash to warn of impending conditions or other hazards, roads under construction are closed or at least there should be visible warning signs, and Warning Traffic Lights Solar TRAFILITE Hazard Lamps for example, and travelling at night on a motorbike with a single beam, you cannot see all the oncoming conditions or dangers, even during the day you can get caught out on a Bicycle because of a deep manhole, hole in the road or hidden bump, so your argument dont hold up soidog, as baseless as Kens

          • soidog

            Weather forecasts work by checking what happened in the past, forecast (with an ‘E’)MEANS to predict! Driving in all conditions requires a driver to be on the look out and to be careful ,who but an idiot would roar along trusting to luck? Is this the reason so many die in Thailand because they just hope for the best?

          • Jack La Motta

            hahahahaha dream on, that is only part of the equation, the ACTUAL Temperature is taken into account, Air Humidity, wind speed and direction, then all the information including past data is fed into a computer, but you are dodging the point Soidog

  • Jack La Motta

    If the road was under construction and not safe for vehicles to use, it should have been closed off, but as usual the boy was probably driving too fast late at night on a clear empty road and probably without a crash helmet! it should be made compulsory when purchasing a bike to purchase a Crash helmet too! they save hundreds of lives! i hope he pulls through! noone deserves to die at 16, however stupid or reckless his actions were.

    • pattayhobo

      There’s always that mysterious bump in the road when you’ve had a skin full of ลาวข้าว Loa khow i know from first hand experience i think i’m Evil Knievel when i’ve had my fill trying to ride back home dodging the coppers and there road side checks Those Mutt Soi dogs are more a hazardous then light poles though.

      • Jack La Motta

        I dont drink and drive ( anymore 😉 )

        • pattayhobo

          We should do some posts in the Thai language, well all of us who can speak Thai that is not you numbnut poms

          • Jack La Motta

            There is a Thai language forum, but that is only for people that speak Thai as a native language not amateurs 😀

  • amazingthailand

    Under construction or not roads runways railways are everywhere in disastrous shape in banana republic. and forget trafic signs if any they are useless or inappropriate or for sure not respected. the only safe thing is the sea which they cannot scr.w up

    • Jack La Motta

      They can screw up the Ships and Ferries that Sail on the Seas

      • amazingthailand

        And farangs

        • Jack La Motta

          only if there are 10+ against 1
