POLICE on Saturday named the man as businessman Adam Tepper, 34, from Langwarrin in Australia. He will be mourned by friends at the Ao Chalong Yacht Club. Officers have confirmed he was travelling at high speed and not wearing a helmet.

Original Report

PHUKET: More than 24 hours after a young man of European appearance was killed in a high-speed motorcycle crash in southern Phuket, police still have no clues about his identity.

The man, aged 20 to 25, broke his neck and died instantly when a motorcycle crashed into a pole not far from the the intersection of Viset Road and Sai Yuan Road in Rawai about 5.30am yesterday.

The rider appeared to be heading towards Chalong Circle.

Police believe he had been drinking. The hired motorcycle continued on and finished scores of metres from the body.

The man, dressed in distinctive patterned black, blue and white shorts and a white t-shirt, carried no identification, bore no tattoos and wore no jewellery.

His hair was close-cropped and he appeared to be of average height and build.

The body has been taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket City. Chalong police can be contacted on 076 381930.

A hired motorcycle? Than the police is able to know within 1 hour were the motorcycle was rented, and probably get to know more of the man's identity at the rental shop.
