A car mechanic who ran over and killed a pregnant woman on Sunday (June 21) gave himself up to police today.

Police in Bangkok’s Min Buri district had issued an arrest warrant for Kawin Sathorn, 48, for killing a woman who was five months pregnant.

The 21-year-old victim, named only as Nadiyah, was on a motorbike with her boyfriend in the Sunwinthawong neighbourhood when they were hit by a black Volvo at around 10.30pm. The impact knocked her off the bike and she was crushed to death as the car drove off. Police say CCTV images show the Volvo stopped 11 kilometres away and the driver got out and hailed a taxi. They have seized the vehicle for forensic investigation.

Kawin walked into the police station at 11am and told investigators that he had lost control of the car after suffering a burst tyre.
