Looks like a hit-and-run? Another drunk official or Chinese driver?

I think the bike not being mangled does not automatically rule out a hit-and-run:

Good find.

I also read a report from someone claiming to have seen the body at the scene, that he had a "blow to his right hip," clearly suggesting that they thought it was a hit and run.

On Tue.I was driving between Otres 1 and 2 on the main road. Pitch black and I came up on an idiot barrang with no lights on a bike. I had a witness with me that I didn't hit him and it was Tue. night. Maybe the same idiot as before riding without any lights. Looks like a death wish to me, like the Cambos that ride their motos without lights.
