The accident happened at about 6:50pm on Chao Fa West Rd.

Chalong Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find three injured men lying on the road. Two of the men were seriously injured and bloody, one aged 50 and the other 70.

Beside the injured men were two damaged motorbikes, one with a sidecar, with property from the sidecar scattered over the road.

Among the items on the road were three cockerels believed to be used for cock-fighting. Two of them were killed in the accident.

Rescue workers provided first-aid to the injured men at the scene before taking them to Vachira Phuket Hospital to be treated.

Early investigations revealed that the motorbike with the sidecar – a blue Honda Wave – was heading north on Chao Fa West Rd and attempted to overtake vehicles in front by driving into the oncoming lane before colliding head-on with another motorbike – a yellow Honda Wave.

Chalong Police confirmed that local CCTV footage will be inspected to determine the exact cause of the accident before relevant charges are filed.

As with so many things, they 'fake justify' that transport vehicle by saying: 'The driver is poor, he needs it for work, he has to feed a family'. And with these excuses much law enforcement is side kicked in Thailand. Many thai laws articles are partial mend for the brown envelop...

Well I guess since sidecars are officially illegal in Thailand he has to be in the wrong anyway, in The USA they drive on the right, in Australia they drive on the left , but in Thailand they drive on both sides , this is the norm
