Hussain Cengiz Coskun
A 24-year-old Turkish tourist has succumbed to his injuries after a crash with his scooter on Phuket on Thursday night.
Police and rescue workers were dispatched to a road near the Red Mountain Golf Course in Kathu district where the incident had taken place at around 22:00.
Hussain Cengiz Coskun, the 24-year-old victim, was bleeding heavily from the head as rescue workers admitted first aid. He was lying on the road next to an electric pole whereas his badly damaged scooter was found a few metres further.
Rescue workers rushed Mr Coskun to Vachira Phuket Hospital. But doctors were not able to save the life of the young Turkish tourist, he was pronounced dead an hour later at around 23:30.
Pol Capt Wichote Meephop, who was assigned to investigate the case, told Phuket Gazette that the scooter was rented from a shop in Patong. “We think Mr Coskun had just been on his way from Patong to Kathu or Phuket Town when the accident occurred,” the Pol Capt Wichote.
What exactly happened remained a mystery to the police. “Be believe that Mr Coskun had lost control at a curve and then smashed his scooter directly into an electric pole,” Pol Capt Wichote speculated, adding that this was only a theory.
