Police have yet to appoint blame in an accident that resulted in the death of a 20-year-old Thai man near Surin Beach this morning.

Russian kills ThaiPolice and First Responder personnel were alerted at 8am to the accident, which occured at a bend in the road, about 300 metres from Laem Sing cape, near Surin Beach in Cherng Talay.

Upon arriving to the scene, volunteers helped collect the body of 20-year-old Sa-gone Kun-nui, who was lying lifeless in a pool of his own blood on the pavement.

Nearby was the white Honda MSX moped-style motorbike that the victim had reportedly been riding.

Police questioned the Russian driver of a black Mazda 3 car, named as 36-year-old Mikhail Cherkasov of Moskovskaya, Russia, who was waiting at the scene with some aquaintances.

Mr Cherkasov was invited him to the Cherng Talay Police Station for further questioning, where he gave report that he had been driving from Kamala when he came to the bend in the road, where the victim, who had been coming from the other direction, lost control of his own bike before smashing into the front of his car, causing him to fly off onto the road, where his unprotected head met the pavement.

The investigation is continuing.
