It was dark, noisy and at that time of the night drivers are tired.

Bodin Pattaranupha, 28, was driving his BMW home when he hit Kannika, throwing her 10 metres down the road. She died later in hospital.

The driver was taken into custody and questioned while police investigate the causes.

A sad story all round. Roads are dangerous places. Don’t stop to take selfies there…
