Teen dies, two injured

A 15-year-old boy riding with two friends was attacked by three 14-year-olds armed with knives, leading to a crash that left one dead and two seriously injured. Police are coordinating with the guardians of the suspects to facilitate their surrender.

Investigators at Hat Yai Police Station in Songkhla province, led by Phum Balthip and Dusit Phromsin, detained the three 14-year-old boys and their guardians. The police also seized their motorcycles for examination.

Multidisciplinary teams conducted interrogations after the suspects allegedly attacked another group with knives while riding motorcycles, causing the victims to lose control and crash into a utility pole. The incident resulted in one fatality and two injuries.

Arufat Bin Yuso, a deputy inspector at Hat Yai Police Station, received a report of a motorcycle accident on Thaksin Mueang Thong 3 Road in Hat Yai district, Songkhla province. Emergency responders, including doctors and the Mitraphap Samakee Hat Yai rescue unit, were dispatched to the scene. They found the body of a 15-year-old boy and nearby, a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, who were injured. A severely damaged black Honda Wave motorcycle with the license plate 1 กฒ 3492 Songkhla was also found. The injured were rushed to Hat Yai Hospital for treatment.

An interview with the injured boy revealed that the group of six friends was riding two motorcycles when they encountered three teenagers who began chasing them with a large knife. The group tried to escape by riding against traffic but were pursued for 15 kilometers. The chase ended when the victims lost control and crashed into a utility pole. The injured boy could not recall anything further after the crash.

Police reviewed CCTV footage along the chase route to identify the suspects. They coordinated with the guardians to bring the suspects in for questioning and seized the motorcycle involved, which had undergone modifications such as a changed wheel and license plate, reported KhaoSod.

The three suspects claimed they were riding from a petrol station when they were overtaken aggressively and stared down by the victims. They insisted they panicked and did not use the knife. The suspects expressed regret.

“We are truly sorry, but it’s too late to change anything now.”
