Klaus Peter

A German tourist died in a road accident when his scooter collided with a pick-up truck. The 61-year-old man had been out on a day-trip when he crashed into a truck in Kanchanaburi province.

An article on the popular Thai-language news website “sanook!” reported the death which took place at 15:49 on Thursday afternoon. According to the news, Mr Klaus Peter, 61, was riding a rented Honda Click (license plate 1กช 2997 Kanchanaburi) and was on his way back from a sightseeing trip to the Erawan Falls and Sri Nakharin Dam in Tha Kradan subdistrict of Kanchanaburi province.

The fatal accident happened on Highway 3199 in Mu 2 Tam Sao Village, a spokesperson at Lad Ya Provincial Police Station said. Witnesses reported that the pick-up truck had been overtaking other traffic when it collided with Mr Peter’s scooter and that the impact caused the car to overturn.

The 27-year-old truck driver, Mr Kiatsak, was only slightly injured. However, Mr Peter, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, sustained severe head injuries and died on the spot, police said.

When police questioned the owner of the shop where the deceased had rented the scooter, they were told that Mr Peter had intended to drive to the Erawan Falls and the Sri Nakharin Dam for a day out on his own.
