“Farang to blame” as Thai man knocked off his motorcycle in South Pattaya | Samui Times

Thai media Sanook were quick to blame a western driver who they said blindly came out of an intersection and hit a Thai man on a motorcycle. 

The accident happened at the Wat Chai intersection on Beach 2 road. 

Police found a damaged red Volvo with Bangkok plates driven by 56 year old Patrick Guy Felio stopped at the scene. 

Toppled over on the road surface was a Zoomer-X Honda that had been ridden by Chaimongkhon, also 56.

He had an injury to the left side of his rib cage and road rash. He was taken to hospital by Sawang Boriboon rescue foundation. 

Before he departed he told reporters that he was travelling normally along the road when the red car suddenly came out of the intersection and hit him. There are lights at the intersection. 

In their headline Sanook used an expression that indicated the foreigner blindly came out of a side soi without looking, clearly laying the blame with him. 

Pattaya police are investigating.
