One dead, one seriously injured in Hong Dong motorcycle accident

One man has died and another person was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash in Hang Dong early this morning, Oct. 22.

The accident occurred on Ratchapruek Road in Nong Khwai at around 12:40 a.m.

The deceased, Mr. Anurak Mirrachong 23 and his girlfriend Miss Thanya Siririyong, 21 were heading home to Ban Waen, Hang Dong after having spent the evening at an “entertainment center” in town when the accident occurred.

Mr. Mirrachong, who does not appear to have been wearing a helmet, died on impact from head injuries while Miss. Mirrachong was rushed to hospital in a serious condition.

Police are investigating to check that no other vehicles were involved in the accident although at this stage it does appear that Mr. Mirrachong crashed the bike at high speed by himself.

The body was taken to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital for an autopsy and to ascertain whether alcohol played a role in the accident.
