Pol Major Pradit Thinson, inspector of the Khelang Nakhon Police Station in Muang district, said the accident happened a little past midnight on Saturday on the Lampang-Chiang Mai Road near the entrance to Ban Rai Khuang Pao village in Tambon Pong Saeng Thong.
Police said the identity of the deceased Myanmar man was not known yet as he did not carry any identification document. The other man, identified as Aow Chaw, 20, suffered injuries to his head and body and was rushed to Lampang Hospital.
The car driver, Apikrit Buamool, 27, told police that he and his friend were driving from Phrae province to a friend’s house in Chiang Mai when the accident occurred.
Apikrit said he saw the two teenagers brawling on the road island and they suddenly came to the middle of the road in front of his car so he could not slam the brakes in time.
