Teenager killed after motorbike accident with a trailer truck

Teenager killed after motorbike accident with a trailer truck

Yesterday afternoon an incident occurred involving a motorbike carrying two young brothers and a trailer truck. The older brother sadly lost his life in the collision, while the younger sibling sustained minor injuries.

The siblings were on their way to Pattaya from Rayong to visit their mother, as shared by the surviving brother.

The heartbreaking event occurred near the entrance of Soi Nong Ket Yai 7 in the Nong Prue subdistrict, Bang Lamung district, Chon Buri province. Pattaya authorities and Sawang Boriboon rescue teams received a distress call around 1 pm and swiftly responded to the scene.

Upon arrival, they found the lifeless body of the older brother, a 16-year-old named Po, tragically crushed under the trailer truck. The aftermath of the accident was harrowing, with the boys’ damaged white Honda Wave 125 motorbike lying close to the truck. The younger brother, Hero, survived the crash with minor injuries.

Hero recounted the journey from Rayong to Pattaya, with Po driving the motorbike and Hero as a passenger. He described how the truck suddenly cut them off while turning into an alley, leading to the tragic collision. Po, unable to avoid the truck, was struck, while Hero managed to jump off the bike, escaping with minor injuries.

The 30-year-old truck driver, Jarin Petchad, shared his version of events with the police. He explained that he was making a turn into Soi Nong Ket Yai 7 when the collision occurred. Jarin claimed he hadn’t seen the motorbike until the impact occurred, as reported by Pattaya News.

Authorities are currently reviewing CCTV footage from the area to corroborate the accounts provided by Hero and Jarin. This investigation aims to establish the exact chain of events and determine if legal action should be taken against Jarin.
