An intoxicated police volunteer and a medical staffer have sustained injuries after their motorbikes collided in Phuket town.
The Phuket City Traffic Police told the Phuket Express that emergency responders were notified of the accident on Thursday morning (January 19th) on the Korsimbi Road near the Rang Hill in Talad Nuea, Mueang Phuket.
The rescue teams arrived at the scene to find two injured men and two damaged motorbikes. One of the injured men was a medical staffer from a nearby hospital. His name was withheld by rescue teams and law enforcement.
The other rider is a registered police volunteer at the Phuket City Police, identified only as Mr. Kreangsak, 52, and dressed in a police uniform.
Mr. Kreangsak recorded 241 milligrams as a percent of alcohol in his body in an alcohol breath test which is well over the legal driving limit.
Mr. Kreangsak was taken to the Phuket City Police Station to face charges of drunk driving causing damage and bodily and mind harm.
