    British Pensioner McVeighty, 83, In Chiang Mai Dies In Motorbike Accident

    (CTN News) – In northern Thailand, a Chinese motorist has been threatened with the full force of the law if she is found at fault for the death of a British pensioner in a road accident.

    Keith William McVeighty died in a motorbike accident involving a car on a motorway in Chiang Mai on Sunday morning.

    CCTV footage shows a female driver allegedly accelerating straight across the road from the inside lane into the outside lane and straight into the path of the 83-year-old driver.


    Despite his best efforts, McVeighty crashed into the rear of the woman’s silver Mazda SUV after being startled by the car.


    The pensioner was flung onto the roof of the car before falling to the ground, and his helmet came off in the collision.


    Emergency services rushed the Isle of Man native to Hang Dong Hospital, where he died several hours later.


    The police investigating the accident found the car’s driver was a woman from China, and she is assisting them with their investigations.

    Captain Jetsada Pankaew of Hang Dong police station says his department is investigating whether the driver was driving recklessly and if the collision was caused by her.


    To understand what caused the accident, we are interviewing the driver and checking CCTV cameras. A legal process will be followed if they were at fault.


    “The motorbike rider died from his injuries after the crash. Despite having a powerful big bike, he was very confident riding it on the road. The bike has been checked as evidence.”


    McVeighty was a well-known motorbike rider who had previously competed in the Isle of Man TT.

    Sad indeed and why you'd be mad to ride anything apart for a step through to the local shop in Thailand.

    RIP tragic aged 83 to not have an Uber or chauffeur in a third world slum, with some of worst air quality by that age.

    Last one I used was under $10 for a 35 m drive airport to Talad Yai east of Bosang.
    I ride a bike and motorcycle in our local fields and neighbouring Banana and Rubber plantations but terrain means 10mph max, wouldn't dream of using highway esp after the early towels "happy hour' where all the farmers and tradesmen neck 3o baht or half a liter of lao Khao Yadong etc.

    BiB no doubt wanna a skakedown from foreigner.

    Think he means 'Jing Jing' rather than 'Ker Ching'.
