A pick-up was seen hitting a motorcycle in Pattaya on Sunday evening, resulting in the pillion passenger being run over and killed, with another woman receiving life threatening injuries.
The deceased, Aim-orn Thongpan, 43 was killed when her head was crushed by the wheels of the pick-up. The other woman, Natchuree Khammuang, 25, was rushed to hospital following the incident.
The driver of the vehicle that hit the women, allegedly tried to escape and was beaten up by passers by as reports claimed he was drunk. Pornthep Jai-ngam, 31, was attacked some two kilometres from where the accident occurred.
Twenty-eight-year-old Pilanee Deethua, who witnessed the incident told how she saw the speeding pick-up hit the motorbike, throwing those on board onto the road. She said one woman was crushed under the vehicle and died at the scene.
The vehicle then sped off into the night. It is unclear how those who assaulted the driver of the pick-up located him.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the deceased.
