Another motorist found him alive but by the time medics arrived he was dead. He had suffered head trauma and was bleeding from the ear.

The accident happened on the road between Chaweng and Lamai.

Another local motor cyclist who had skidded on the same spot earlier said the rubbish had probably fallen off the back of a refuse truck.
