British Woman Killed In Phuket Motorbike Accident

A 28-year-old British woman died this morning in Phuket after being thrown from a motorbike on which she was a passenger after it collided with a pickup truck.

Volunteers from the Kusoldham Patong Rescue Foundations said when they arrived at the scene they found the body of a young woman who had suffered a broken neck and injuries to her head. The driver of the motorbike, said to be another European woman, survived the accident on Phra Baramee Road at the foot of Patong hill.

Both women were rushed to Patong Hospital where the British woman was pronounced dead a short time later.

Kathu police told reporters when they arrived at the scene of the crash both women had already been taken to the hospital and a black Toyota Vigos pickup truck was parked up with slight damage to it’s front end and a smashed Honda Wave motorbike beneath it.

Eyewitnesses say the women pulled out from a side soi and attempted to make a u-turn when the pickup slammed into them sending the passenger crashing to the ground and hitting her head off the pavement.

There was a helmet photographed at the scene next to the body of the victim but it’s unclear if it had been worn by the passenger or the driver of the bike.

Lt Seninat Chuachootrakunthong of Patong Police told the Phuket Gazette, “I am currently questioning witnesses for this case and will release more details when they become available”.
