    The house isn't finished yet, there are no lights nor doors, just walls and a roof.

    Very sad news indeed.
    I understand Crazyswede's protective clothing consisted of tee shirt, combat trousers and small piss pot helmet. He chose not to return home with his buddies in daylight hours but hang around in Buriram all day drinking until after dark before setting off home alone. Very easy to blame the Thai drivers but everyone knows the risks here and needs to be accountable for their actions and their responcibilities!

    Hey Koetjeka,
    You seem to have known him well. Perhaps you might like to organize a few friends and try to finish the house for his wife ?
    Did he have family in Sweden who might help his wife financially ?

    Are you sure he was drinking all day Sunday? He was phoned at around 3pm when he was in a PTT gas station on his way out of Buriram and as the accident happened at Chom Pra at 6pm, I suspect your assumption about him leaving in the dark might also be wrong. He also did NOT 'chose not to return home with us', as WE chose to leave far earlier than was arranged.

    I am sorry Dave the Dude but these are not assumptions. He was seen drinking through the day. He left Buriram just before 6pm. Between 4pm and up until the time he left he was chatting with a group of Buriram thai bikers. I do not assume how the accident happened or portion blame on anybody as others have. I am just putting some known facts on his movements prior to the accident.
    It is a sad loss felt by so many and that sadness should remain as a reminder to us all about road safety. Your group travelled only a short distance but chose to overnight in a hotel for this reasons.

    From a life of plenty, maybe grow up in Germany, at least be exposed to western concepts and values and a good education and therefor job and futere,have nice clothes and shoes.
    To being a village boy.
    Maybe I don't know, but the kids future just went from good to bad.
    If you can't feel for that, well, i don't know what to say.

    Good job you don't ride your bike while drunk !

    Especially while riding through that bakery nearby.

    A tragic pile-up with the jam tarts and Eccles cakes might ensue.

    So his nearest and dearest lied to me about being informed at 8pm of his death in Chom Pra at 6pm.

    Can the family contact you for information as to his whereabouts on the last day as this might assist in the current police investigation?

    Interesting.

    This [unfortunate] thread has brought out all the Surin & Buriram expat gossipy types whom rarely appear here on TD - they've there own little forum boys club in which to ply their wares.

    Sorry to hear about the Swede. Knew of his presence in other circles.
    RIP and condolences to his Thai family.

    No problem, I cannot reply to PM.

    I was just upset about losing a friend and think its disrespectful of some folk who like to act as Judge Judy and Executioner.

    Ride safe

    It was his fault? Farang with money. Now his widow owes the other driver money for damages?
