AN AUSTRALIAN man died in a motorcycle crash on Phuket’s notorious Patong Hill about 3.30am yesterday. He was named today as Adam John Sutcliffe, 32.
Some questions about the crash remain to be answered. Phuketwan understands Mr Sutcliffe was travelling across the hill alone on a rented motorcycle, with his helmet hanging off the pillion seat.
Mr Sutcliffe was on his way to meet his Thai girlfriend in Phuket City. The crash came before the Buddhist temple at the top of Patong Hill.
It is believed Mr Sutcliffe died almost instantly when his head hit the roadway, after a collision with a second motorcycle.
