Tourist who hit three year old in Chiang Mai is a Canadian professor

The man who hit a three year old girl on his big bike in Chiang Mai is a 52 year old Canadian professor travelling the world.

The accident was caught on CCTV and a hunt resulted in Markus Christopher Petri being interviewed by Chiang Mai police yesterday.

The little girl – Lola Ansari – remains in ICU with brain swelling and a broken leg.

She was being wheeled across the road near Jeng Sri Phoom by her English dad Mark Ansari, 56, and his Spanish wife Raquel Salvadar, 23.

Petri was overtaking a four wheel public vehicle. He said that the child was wheeled into his path and he could not avoid her.He fled the scene of the accident saying that he was in a state of shock.

Manager reported that the family of the little girl come to Thailand every February. Petri is a Canadian professor on a world tour. He had previously been to Bali and Burma and was on his way to China next.

He was apparently looking for work teaching English in Asia.

He has been charged with negligent riding causing serious injury and is set to go to court where his case will be heard.
