Bystanders said the Briton seemed to be trying to drive through a hole in a central reserve to turn around when the white Honda attacked him.

The police found the British pensioner – who was not wearing a helmet and wearing shorts and slippers – stretched out on the floor.

The motorist Somchai Phetchamrat, 34, waited for the crash site when the police arrived.

The driver told the authorities that he could not stop the car in time to prevent him from colliding with the Brit's motorcycle.

The motorist had driven from his home to the office when he collided with the Brit, he said.

& # 39; I couldn't stop the car and I hit it. My car hit him very hard, & he explained.

Police captain Weerayuth Kangkala said the car driver's first statement seemed reliable, but he said they should check CCTV cameras. They will then decide whether to file a complaint.

& # 39; We need to re-check the CCTV to check the incident and identify who made the mistake before we sue anyone, & # 39; said a research officer.

& # 39; It is possible that the motorist should not have driven so close to a turn point. & # 39;
