A young 15-year-old boy lost his life in a traffic accident in Sri Racha.
The victim was a Thai minor named Silpachai (last name withheld due to his age). He was assisted by Ban Bueng rescue services yesterday, October 24th, after his red Honda wave motorcycle slipped and crashed into a large cement truck.
Silpacha was discovered with severe chest injuries and fractured ribs in the Bowin subdistrict of Sri Racha, Chonburi.
He was pronounced dead at the scene by rescue workers and transported to Laem Chabang Hospital to wait for his family.
However, his passenger A (Alias), was miraculously alive, uninjured, and well. He told local media that his friend and he were going to a friend’s house.
Their motorcycle then slipped because the road was covered with sand and slid under a truck coming in the opposite direction.
A slid under the truck but was not ran over and emerged from the accident with no injuries.
Bowin police said he would question the cement truck’s driver for more information.
The minimum age to drive a motor vehicle in Thailand is 18, and to drive a motorcycle is 15.
