BANGKOK – Public prosecutors have postponed announcing their decision in the case against Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya for the fifth time.
Vorayuth, now 28, was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident that killed Pol Snr Sgt-Major Wichian Klanprasert in Bangkok last September.
Reuchai Krairerk, a senior expert public prosecutor for criminal litigation, yesterday announced the fifth postponement. He explained that the suspect had told Attorney-General Chulasingh Vasantasingh of his intention to fight the accusation that he was speeding at the time of the accident. He added that further investigation related to the speeding charge had not yet been completed.
“Police investigators have to question four more witnesses, including two speeding experts. The investigation report on this part has not been concluded,” Reuchai said.
Police have pressed two charges against Vorayuth – reckless driving that caused a death, and failure to stop his vehicle and come out to help the victim.
Recordings from closed-circuit television showed Vorayuth was driving at 170 kilometres per hour at the time of the accident
