A 40 year old motorcycle delivery man fell ten meters to his death after crashing on a bridge near the Nong Kham motorway toll booth in Sri Racha, Chonburi. 

 

It was the fourth similar death at the same spot this year. 

 

A motorway rescue official who saw the accident said that the rider was driving at speed and lost control on loose sand. When he rushed to investigate he found only the Honda Click - rider Wirat had been propelled over the barrier. 

 

Other rescue was called who performed CPR on the still living rider. He died soon after in hospital. 

 

News sources said that calls have been made to raise the height of the wall of the bridge that is only one meter high and not sufficient to contain a rider in the event of coming off.
