The money came from village headman Pradit Kongsanpipabab, owner of a vehicle involved in a collision at Chalong Circle on July 5 last year with a motorcycle ridden by Surachai Taweesin, 59.
Khun Surachai's son and other relatives could wait no longer for the case to reach Phuket provincial Court so they used family vehicles to block the entrance to the police station today.
Officers admitted that the paperwork for the case had yet to be sent to the Phuket prosecutor's office because of some gaps in evidence.
However, Khun Pradit stepped in and resolved the issue by telling the family that he would hand over 900,000 baht in compensation at the police station on Saturday.
A member of his staff was driving the vehicle at the time of the fatal crash, he added.
