One dead, one seriously injured as ‘big bike’ slams into Fa Ham power pole

One man has died while another was seriously injured after the “big bike” they were on slammed into a power pole in Fa Ham early this morning Nov. 29.

The accident occurred in Ban Sammakorn at around 1:30 a.m.

There were no witnesses to the crash with locals finding a Chiang Mai-registered Honda CB 500 F crashed at the scene with one man already dead with the other seriously injured.

The identities of the men are unknown and neither had identification with both described as being between the age of 20 to 25. Neither were wearing helmets.

Mae Ping Police believe the accident is likely due to careless driving with the motorcycle losing control on a curve before slamming into the power pole. An investigation has been launched including police obtaining CCTV footage from the area.

The body of the deceased man was transported to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital for an autopsy.
