Police say alcohol may have played a role in last Thursday’s death of a motorcyclist who slammed into a fuel tanker at a PTT gas station in Naklua.
The unidentified driver in his 30s hit and slid under the 10-wheel fuel truck as it turned into the station on Naklua Road. A small bottle of alcohol was found in the victim’s pocket.
Truck driver Paitoon Sapsathit was detained and his Patamawatkarn Petroleum Co. vehicle impounded pending further investigations.
The victim of the road traffic accident lies prostrate next to the fuel tanker with which he collided on his motorcycle in Naklua, Thursday, March 30.
