Cyclist dies after being hit, thrown from bridge by 6-wheeler

A 52-year-old cyclist was killed yesterday after he was hit by a six-wheeler truck and thrown off the elevated Chaiyapruk road in Bangkok’s outskirts.

Nattawat Romyenjai, 52, died instantly after the crash threw his body off the bridge while his bicycle was found flipped upside down, leaning against the bridge’s barrier.

The truck driver Roongruang Tansor, 44, said he was heading to Tesco Lotus warehouse when the sun hit his eyes, so he did not notice the cyclist.

The victim’s wife said Nattawat was training for the Bike for Dad cycling event, a 29-kilometer trip, due to take place on Friday.

Police charged the truck driver with reckless driving, Khaosod reported.
