Motorcycle rider knocked out by stray dog running across road in Thailand

This is the moment a motorcycle rider was knocked out by a stray dog running into her path.

Street food seller Pawinee Chusrithong, 32, was riding to a market to cook grilled pork in Chonburi last Friday (October 4).

But while she was travelling, a dog on the other side of the road dashed in front of her motorcycle.

CCTV footage shows how the dog hit the front wheel, sending Pawinee skidding across the ground while the unharmed dog scampered away.

The woman, who was not wearing a helmet, was given first aid by paramedics before being taken to the nearest hospital.

A rescuer volunteer who attended the accident said that he felt sorry for Pawinee because there was nothing she could have done to avoid the crash.

Singthong Nammala said: ''The motorcycle rider suffered a head injury but the family cannot ask for money for compensation from anyone because the person who caused the accident is a dog.

''The only way to avoid this kind of accident is to be very careful when riding and look out for hazards.''
