A Burmese motorcyclist was injured after driving into a poorly marked hole left in the road by construction crews.

The unnamed 27-year-old suffered a cut to the face and scratches in the April 7 crash on Soi Mityon. He was treated at the scene and refused to go to the hospital.



Witnesses said the driver was speeding down the soi and had just turned on to South Road when he plunged into the open trench that had neither lights nor barriers.

Four different construction projects are in progress on South Road with open holes and detours plaguing locals for months. City hall has promised to finish the roadwork by Songkran.

Eyewitness said that the driver was going too fast when he made the turn and plunged into the unmarked construction.


The open trench had no lights or barriers.
