2 Australians killed inscooter accident in Krabi

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

2 Australians killed inscooter accident in Krabi

Post by Anthony's Weiner »

A horrific sight awaited police and rescue teams when they arrived at the scene of a head on collision between a motorcycle and a pick-up truck near the turning to the hot springs (Sa Morakot) in Krabi, southern Thailand.
Two Australian tourists were dead at the scene.
A 53 year old lady named as Hei Delin De was on the roof of a pick-up with its front smashed in.
Her husband Michael Benk De, 54, was dead on the road surface. A motorcycle with its front smashed was nearby.
Both had suffered severe injuries.
The 30 year old driver of the pick-up had walked to tell Klong Thom police about the accident.
He said that the couple were riding with another couple on another motorcycle when the deceased pair rode into his lane and there was a collision.
Police are investigating.

Don't Aussies drive on the wrong side of the road too?

They do, and from this pic alone you'd have to say that fault is entirely with the motorcyclist.
Meum est propositum in taberna mori,
ut sint Guinness proxima morientis ori.
tunc cantabunt letius angelorum chori:
"Sit Deus propitius huic potatori."
