Horrific scenes unfolded on Pattaya’s busy Beach Road, when a motorcyclist swerved to avoid a coconut in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Filipino Kenneth Sagubay, 31, lay sprawled on the roadside as people tried desperately to assist him. His Honda Click was close by.
The tourist, who was bleeding heavily for a head wound also suffered a broken arm in the accident.
One witness who was following Mr. Sagubay, said the bike was being driven fast towards Walking Street, when the driver swerved to avoid a coconut. He lost control, hitting the kerb and a power pole.
The victim is being treated at Pattaya Memorial Hospital for his injuries.
