Video: Sickening footage as baby dies after pick-up goes the wrong way on the highway

CCTV footage from Suphanburi on Tuesday showed a grey pick-up going the wrong way around a bend in the road at Suan Taeng sub-district.

 

An oncoming black pick-up coming round the corner had no chance and there was a head on collision at considerable speed.

 

Six people were seriously hurt. A good Samaritan picked up two of the injured and rushed them to a hospital.

 

A woman posted that one of these - a 6 month old child - was dead by the time they reached the hospital.

 

The 20 second clip was shared to the "Dome Computer and CCTV" page.

 

 

Witness Phataraphon, 24, said he was going to his girlfriend's house.

 

He passed the area where the accident occurred but saw the pick-up on the wrong side of the road coming towards him. He had to veer suddenly to stop becoming a victim himself.

 

But within seconds the accident occurred at the bend.

 

Suphanburi police said that clearly the grey pick-up was in the wrong.

 

A Thai man was driving and not a Burmese national as was rumored on social media, police confirmed.

 

They could not say yet whether the man was drunk. They were awaiting blood tests carried out on him at the hospital where he lays injured.

 

He is likely to face a charge of negligent driving causing death.

Another tragic loss of life on the roads of Thailand, due to incompetence, negligence, insanity, stupidity and numerous other descriptive words that could be used.

R.I.P.

Please tell me this is not the motorsai we see at the beginning? Because that dude kept course without noticing one damn wrong thing at all.

 

Also what's up with that CCTV footage, that quality is way better than what I'm used to, I'm scared :(

Drunk or drugged would be my guess. Waiting for the tox screen. It's a sad day for the victims. If only police would enforce road laws and Thais not waving off their lawlessness as "our way of life" - just quoting one guy who got upset at being told he couldn't ride in the back of a pickup. And how long did that last?

It appears that the 'complete and total utter moronic, brainless fool' pulled out of a side street and turned right, the wrong way onto a dual carriageway thinking it was simply a normal road and not knowing it was divided carriageway and they needed to U-Turn before heading in the correct direction on the correct side of the divide. 

 

Tragic consequences resulted from what is ultimately pure dumbness.

 

*Additionally and even more tragically so, perhaps the infant may have survived had they been secured 'rear facing' in an infant car seat

 

(*someone is going to pick up on the fact that I don't know this, they will be correct, but having lived here for a number of years it still astonishes me that an overwhelming percentage of Children are not safely secured in seatbelts or when younger in child seats when in cars).

one more mentally retarded driver...

 

why are there so many incidents of astounding stupidity in Thailand?

 

but to put things in perspective, the German ADAC reported about 2200 incidents of the same type in 2016 in Germany.

there are many instances of Thai drivers doing this for a shortcut, going to his girlfriends would indicate to me he was familiar with the road 

 

how tragic
