French tourists crash motorcycles in Pai

Royal Thai Army soldiers have come to the assistance of two French tourists who managed to crash their bikes near Pai yesterday, Jan. 8.

The accident occurred on Highway 1095 near the Doi Kiew Lom View Point in Tambon Mae Na Toeng at around 3:45 p.m.

The French tourists, who were accompanied by their Taiwanese wives, were riding along the winding road when they came to grief. One bike ended up crashed on the road while the other ended up down a ditch.

Thai language media naturally blamed rain and wet conditions for the accident.

Other than a few scrapes and bruises, the tourists were reported to be fine. One of the women was taken to hospital as a precaution.
