British Motorcyclist killed in hit-and-run road accident in East Pattaya

PATTAYA: -- A British motorcyclist was killed in a hit-and-run road accident in East Pattaya on Saturday afternoon. The accident occurred in Soi Siam Country Club and resulted in the death of Mr. Christopher Nicholas Gibb aged 30 from Middlesex, England. Witnesses, described how Mr. Gibb, attempted an overtaking maneuver past a slow moving pick-up but clipped a side-mirror of a pick-up travelling in the opposite direction. He fell off his motorbike onto the road and in the path of a 10-wheel truck which was carrying tables and chairs. It failed to stop in time and ran-over Mr. Gibb. The truck failed to stop at the scene and is currently being sought by Police. The driver of the pick-up travelling in the opposite direction to Mr. Gibb remained at the scene and confirmed the chain-of-events but was detained by Police pending further investigations.

What would be a reasonable guess at how many foreigners die in bike accidents in Pattaya, reported or not?

2 a week, 4 a month?

Farangs? I'd say 4 to 6 per month, bikes are dangerous.

Yeah, but if you die at the hospital, it doesn't count.

Could it be that the statistics then presume that you didn't die from the accident, that the cause of death was another - then? :o
