Phuket, the 23rd of February 2010 [PDN]: Young British National due to fight later in the week at one of the boxing stadiums in Patong died instantly when his motorbike collided with another ridden by a Thai man at approximately 5.30 am on 22nd February 2010. A Danish man riding pillion with the Brit was seriously injured and taken to Phuket International Hospital by a passerby. He remains in a critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit.
On arrival at the scene, Police found the bodies of Adam William Menagh  and Chainarong Wathana  on Chao Fa East Road, opposite Soi Thanoothep in Chalong at 5.30 am. They had both suffered severe head trauma and had died instantly.
Police assume Mr. Menagh’s motorbike may have veered across the lanes on his way into Phuket Town causing him to collide with Mr. Chainarong as he came from Phang Nga province, heading towards Chalong.
Neither of the two victims were wearing helmets. Police will continue with their investigations in an attempt uncover the reasons behind the fatal accident.
