The crash occurred in front of a Makro store in South Pattaya on Sukhumvit Road inbound to Pattaya, Pol. Capt. Sanan Kotanon, deputy investigation chief at Pattaya, told The Pattaya News.
Police and Sawang Boriboon rescue workers who rushed to the scene found a crashed red Honda Wave motorbike on the road beside an 18-wheeler with Prachuap Khiri Khan license plates.
A Thai motorcyclist, 38-year-old Mr. Chinawat Chaichum, was killed on the spot. The victim suffered severe head injuries and heavy bleeding. The man’s body was transported to a nearby hospital. Police questioned the truck driver, 56-year-old Mr. Chalong Chuklin, who was waiting at the scene.

He stopped and went to check, and found that a motorcycle had rear-ended his truck.
