Thai expats, tourists 'must obey laws'

- +

The Foreign Ministry on Thursday appealled to all Thais to respect the laws of other countries in which they are living or travelling in the wake of the death of two Japanese students killed by a drunk Thai driver. 

Three Thai nationals were arrested after the car in which they were travelling collided with two Japanese student cyclists in Chiba prefecture on the night of Aug 14. The crash killed an 18-year-old male student at the scene and left a 20-year-old female student in critical condition.  

Japanese media reported the teen girl was pronounced dead on Thursday morning, a week after the incident. Blood tests on the three Thais, one of whom was a woman, showed high alcohol levels. The male driver reportedly admitted he was drunk and did not have an international driver’s licence.
