Retired teacher out cycling killed by truck in Pathum Thani


A retired teacher out for his morning bicycle ride was struck and killed by a truck in Pathum Thani’s Klong Luang district on Tuesday morning.

Police said Sawang Sitthithanakul, 75, died at the scene at 8.30am alongside Klong L-1-2 in Moo 8, Tambon Klong Nueng.
Truck driver Sathaporn Noomthongkham, 27, said he saw no one in his path but felt a bump as his lorry struck something. He pulled over and found the cyclist dead.
A neighbour of Sawang told police it was the former teacher’s habit to cycle to a nearby market each morning to buy his breakfast.
