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.

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
