At 6am today, Kusoldharm rescue workers stationed in Muang Mai received a call from the Phuket Narenthorn Centre reporting an accident on Thepkasattri Rd close to the Tha Rue Shrine.

Kusoldharm and Srisoonthorn rescue workers went to the scene to find the driver of the motorbike, Nutdanai Taemsinlapachai, 24, and his unnamed passenger lying in the road.

Rescue workers confirmed that Mr Nutdanai had sustained a broken right leg while his passenger had injuries to his left leg.

Witnesses said that Mr Nutdanai was riding the bike from Koh Kaew towards Heroines Monument at high speed when they hit a dog that had run into the road. This caused Mr Nutdanai to lose control of the bike and crash into a tree on the footpath.

Mr Nutdanai and his passenger were both taken to Thalang Hospital for further medical treatment.

Poor dog. Did Animal Rescue also rushed to the scene? High speed driver never able to think high speed. Never driver faster than you can think and react.
