The son of a Swedish-owned hotel in Rayong was decapitated when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into oncoming traffic.
Jhon Olov Eddie Viding, 25, was pronounced dead at the 5 Phaeng curve on Laem Maepim-Banpae Beach Sept. 22. Viding’s father owns the Grand Silver Sea House nearby.
Police and rescue workers remove what is left of the motorcycle.
The Swede, riding a 500cc Ducati motorcycle, collided with a Tata Motors Xenon truck driven by Chanat Suwanchot, 58. The left side of the pickup was damaged, the front tire torn, and skirt damaged.
Witnesses said Viding was speeding toward a biker party on the beach when he lost control at the curve and crashed into the truck before being catapulted off the bike.
