KOH SAMUI – A tourist killed in a crash crash in Thailand was not a New Zealander as Thai and Chiang Rai times media had initially reported, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) has confirmed.

Initial reports suggested  65-year Frank Brown had died when his car collided with a rubbish truck at high speed.

A MFAT spokesman said the mistaken identification was probably because  the dead man had borrowed a New Zealander’s car.

”Our embassy had been contacted about the incident but it has since been confirmed that this person was not a New Zealander.”
