Two women on the Honda Wave motorcycle came off but survived and were taken to hospital. They were 39 year old Rampheung Thepwarin and Miss Sudarat Saengsuk.

The accident happened at a U-turn near the hotel where the road is poorly marked as a zebra crossing.

Police said that the victim had just been to a store and was returning to his hotel at 7.45 am.

Na Jomtien police are investigating.

Zebra crossings have been in the news in the last week with an anti drink drive foundation and the Culture Ministry teaming up to try and get riders and motorists to stop for pedestrians in Bangkok.

It is not known if the campaign is being rolled out nationwide.
