NAKHON RATCHASIMA: A British national driving a motorcycle was killed by a hit-and-run driver at an intersection in Muang district late on Wednesday night.

Police and rescuers responded to a call to Phon Lan gate intersection, on Ratchasima-Chok Chai Road in tambon Nai Muang, about 11.35pm.

They found a male foreigner lying face down on the road in a pool of blood near a damaged motorcycle. The man had no pulse. Rescue workers immediately began CPR, but were unable to revive him, according to the police report. 

The dead man was a British national, 43, whose name was withheld pending notification of relatives. He had a meal with friends not far from the scene before the crash.
