A young Russian man died after he crashed a motorbike into a house’s wall in the Thep Krasattri sub-district on Sunday night (March 24th)

The Thalang Police were notified of the incident at 10:00 P.M. in front of a house in Baan Don. Emergency responders arrived at the scene to find the damaged motorbike stuck between a power pole and the wall.

Nearby was found the body of the rider, MR. EVGENII VIKTOROVICH, 25, a Russian national, in front of the house. A helmet was found at the scene but it was unclear if the Russian rider was wearing the helmet before the accident.
