A woman driving the wrong way on Sukhumvit Road was killed when her motorbike was hit head-on by a pickup truck.

The unidentified woman, aged between 18 and 25, suffered catastrophic wounds early July 12 and was pronounced dead at the accident scene near the U-turn in front of the Chonburi Pest Management Center at kilometer marker 149.

Police are looking for the driver of this vehicle for questioning in the road death of a woman motorcyclist who was driving against traffic on Sukhumvit Road last week.

Baht bus driver Chalerm Homjit said he’d spoken to the woman only moments before her fatal accident to give her directions to Soi Kophai. The 60-year-old remembered distinctly advising the woman not to drive against traffic on Sukhumvit, but she did so anyway and was hit at the U-turn by a bronze Mitsubishi Strada.

The pickup’s driver fled the scene and police impounded the truck while they pursue its driver for possible prosecution.
