Rebecca Shaw

A British national died, and another was injured after a pickup truck hit their motorbike on the notoriously dangerous Patong Hill.

According to rescue workers at the scene, the bike carrying the two women – Rebecca Shaw, 32, and Julie Anita Maria Robinson, 55 – exited a small soi onto the main road when the pickup truck slammed into them.

The two women were taken to Patong Hospital. One was pronounced dead on arrival.

Though police were able to confirm the nationality of the tourists, they are unable to provide any additional information to the Phuket Gazette at this time.

“I am currently questioning witnesses for this case and will release more details when they become available,” said Pol Lt Seninat Chuachootrakunthong of the Patong Police.
