An unidentified young foreign tourist thought be a Russian national was hit and killed by a fellow Russian motorist as he crossed Jomtien Beach Road making a video call on his phone.
The fatal accident happened opposite The Now Hotel on Jomtien Beach Road just before 3 a.m. on Sunday.
The yet unidentified victim carried no ID card or passport on him but is also believed to be a Russian national aged approx. 25-30 years old.
We’re certain it’s not completely new to you that pedestrians aren’t always safe on the streets of Pattaya. So the following story may just serve as an extreme reminder that you should always keep an eye on the traffic before crossing a road in Thailand.
This rule doesn’t apply just during heavy daytime traffic but especially late in the night when the streets may be mostly deserted but motorists may be drunk and speeding just for that very reason.
A 25-year-old Russian identified as Mr. Vadim Volkov was now killed on Pattaya Second Road after he crossed the street without paying attention and presumably in a rush and was hit by another foreigner riding a Ducati superbike at reportedly high speed.
The fatal accident occurred just outside Caesar’s Palace Hotel near Soi 8 at around 3.30 a.m. on Wednesday and also left the foreign crash driver badly injured.
Pattaya police are investigating the mysterious death of a 41-year-old male foreign tourist whose body was found lying on the bed of his hotel room on Soi Buakhao Tuesday night. The tourist has been identified as Mr. Viktor Vart from Kazakhstan.
But it’s not just the as-yet-unknown cause of death which makes this case mysterious: Lying next to the naked body who police assume had been dead for over 24 hours, officers also found the dead man’s Thai girlfriend who was reportedly heavily drunk and “sobbing” but otherwise alive and well.
