Frenchman killed in motorcycle crash on Samui | News by Samui TimesOliver Aunay, 54, a French citizen, died in the accident on Thawee Ratphakdee road in Moo 1 in Tambon Mae Nam of Samui district at 6pm.

Footage from a security camera showed that Aunay was riding his motorcycle when a motorcycle driven by a Thai man crossed the road, cutting his way.

The clip showed Aunay trying to stop his motorcycle, but it fell over and slid on the road until the Frenchman’s head hit a step pedal on the other motorcycle.

The other motorcyclist was identified as Pongpol Pinpat, 30. He claimed that he had already crossed the road halfway when Aunay’s motorcycle sped towards him.

Aunay’s friend told police that he was returning home from a meeting at a law firm in Tambon Maret on Ban Lamai beach to negotiate the sale of one of his French restaurants to a German.
