Małgorzata Regina Szczygeł

An elderly German man ran over a Polish woman to death last night in southern Phuket. Police were alerted to the accident – which happened near the entrance to Soi Towdang Uthit on Wiset Rd, between Chalong and Rawai – at about 22:00.

There was nothing rescue workers could do to save the victim, named as 44-year-old Mrs Małgorzata Regina Szczygeł from Poland, who was found lifeless in a pool of blood in the middle of the road, as scores of residents and onlookers passed by.

Also at the scene of the accident there was a black Honda car and its 73-year-old German driver. He told police that he had been driving the car from Chalong circle, unable to slow down in time to avoid hitting Mrs Szczygeł, who was crossing the street with her partner.

The German man was detained and charged for reckless driving resulting in death, but by 23:00 had posted bail in the amount of 100,000 baht.
