Brit dies in horror accident in Thailand

A BRITISH pensioner has died following a horrific motorbike crash in Thailand.

Keith William McVeighty was cruising along the motorway in the city of Chiang Mai when a “reckless driver” allegedly pulled out in front of him.

CCTV reportedly showed footage of a female driver as she ploughed into the 83-year-old on Sunday morning.

It is claimed that the driver had been forced to pull on his breaks before a silver Mazda SUV collided into the back of his motorcycle on the busy interchange.

The British national, originally from the Isle of Man, was allegedly flung onto the roof of the vehicle before falling off onto the side of the road.  

Reports suggest the pensioner lost his helmet as paramedics scrambled to the scene.

The ex-pat was rushed to the city’s Hang Dong Hospital, but was sadly pronounced dead several hours later as his family were informed.

Local police have since opened an investigation into the death to determine whether the driver in question, thought to be a woman from neighbouring China, had been at fault for the horrific collision.
