The fatal incident happened opposite Jomtien Soi 5 and was reportedly “not the first in the area” in recent time.
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 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.
A 45-year-old Finnish tourist was reportedly stabbed by two Thai men near Soi Whitehouse in Jomtien just after midnight on Thursday.
