RIP, Mr. Silva - condolences to family and friends. Just guessing here, but perhaps a helmet could have saved his life - a REAL helmet, not the 99 Baht plastic shells... 

Just guessing here but perhaps he was wearing the helmet that was reported a being found at the scene?  And maybe it wasn't a B99 one.

Maybe he was wearing it, but since police couldn't establish if he was, it wasn't found on his head. So he was not wearing it properly.

Impacts that cause severe, fatal head injuries often cause the helmet to be displaced, you have no idea whether he was wearing it properly or not.

If wore properly it most likely would not have been displaced. So yes, I do have some idea.
