One dead in Mae Rim motorcycle roadside drain crash

A man has been found dead after crashing his motorcycle in a Mae Rim village.

The body of Mr. Surawut Suranipa, 45 was found by villagers in a roadside drain in Moo 1, Tambon Mae Sa yesterday, Dec. 26 at 6 a.m.

Police believed that Mr. Suranipa had crashed the night before as he “may not have been able to see the path.”

Despite being located near a local market, it’s not clear from reports why the body was not discovered until near sunrise.

Mr. Suranipa’s body was taken to Nakornping Hospital for an autopsy to determine the cause of death but given the photos, it’s not hard to guess.
