Taxi driver dies during fight with Sukhumvit McDonald’s delivery driver


A taxi driver died during an altercation with a motorcycle delivery driver for the McDonald’s at Sukhumvit 17 after they crashed into each other last Sunday.

Taxi driver Mr. Suriya Sipumkan, 45, collided with the McDonald’s employee’s motorbike while turning onto Sukhumvit Soi 17 and both men began to fight in the Robinson’s parking lot.

Suriya was hit many times in the face, but ran back to his cab to get a knuckle-duster. He collapsed and died as he was running back to attack the driver, Daily News reported. Many taxi drivers gathered around to help Suriya, but he had already passed away.

Lumpini Station Police initially arrested the 20-year-old McDonald’s delivery employee Mr. Pornchai Chadrattanaporn and charged with committing bodily harm.

Police told the Daily News that they are waiting for forensic tests to prove the cause of death, as the blunt object wounds that the taxi driver received would not appear to be enough to kill him.
