PHUKET: -- An unidentified young man speeding on the Thepsrisin Bridge, on the outskirts of Phuket Town near Saphan Hin, has died in hospital from serious injuries sustained when his motorbike collided with a palm tree at high speed at about 1pm April 17.

 

Lt Phatcharee Wongboon of the Wichit Police Station together with Kusoldharm rescue workers arrived at the crash scene to find the young man lying unconscious on the road, bleeding profusely.

 

His motorbike, a red Yamaha M-Slaz 150, was lying on the road some 50 meters away.
