Roger Frederick Younger

An Australian man who crashed his motorbike into a traffic barrier in Kamala on Saturday morning had died reports The Phuket News.

The unconscious victim, named by police as Roger Frederick Younger, 37, was rushed to Patong Hospital. Later, a hospital employee told The Phuket News that the man had succumbed to his injuries in the emergency room.

Earlier, at 12:40 that day, Kamala Police’s Capt Prasert Thongprom was called to an accident near Baan Kamala Muslim Cemetery (Kubo Mutsaam). Arriving at the scene, police found a mangled, red plate Honda motorbike leaning against a traffic barrier. Scrapes were clearly visible along the barrier. No helmet was found at the scene.

“Witnesses to the accident said that the big bike was coming from the direction of Patong and heading to Leam Sing at high speed,” The Phuket News quoted Pol Capt Prasert. “The rider missed the bend and slammed into the barrier causing him to fly from the bike and land on a path running along the outside of the cemetery wall.”

Police transported the victim’s bike to Kamala Police Station and notified The Australian Consulate-General in Phuket of the death.
