A 16-year-old male student is fighting for his life after he rode his motorcycle into a 10-wheel trick in San Pa Tong this morning May 29.
The accident happened in Ban Klang at around 7:20 a.m. on an unnamed highway but possibly Chiang Mai – Hot Road (Highway 108).
The accident occurred when the unnamed student drove straight into a truck doing a u-turn on the road. Initial reports suggest the student was riding the bike at high speed and did not see the truck making the u-turn in time to stop.
The student was initially transported to San Pa Tong District Hospital before later being transferred to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. The photos from the scene would indicate that he was not wearing a helmet.
Police are said to be investigating.
