Great news - "miracle" nurse in horrific accident sitting up in bed in hospital

The nurse who was hurled into the air when she was hit behind by a motorist in Nong Bua Lamphu in Thailand's north east is sitting up in hospital.

 

Sanook called her survival miraculous and anyone who saw the accident from CCTV footage might agree.

 

Patchanok, aged just 23 and a nurse at Nong Bua Lamphu hospital, was propelled thirty meters down the road when a Nissan driven by Wannapatsorn, 38, collided with her as she waited on her motorbike at the lights.

 

Patchanok was originally taken to her own hospital but then transferred to Udon Hospital where yesterday she was taking water and answering questions relatively normally though she was still in a bleary state.

 

She had surgery on her spleen that was badly damaged and suffered bruising to her body, face and head but there was no brain damage at all, said doctors.

 

Sanook repeated what was reported yesterday that Wannapatsorn said that she applied her brakes but somehow they just did not work.

 

Police have charged her with negligent driving causing serious injury.

 

Many posters online and on Thaivisa were appalled at the slow response of the police and bystanders at the scene who, perhaps fearing the worst for the motorcyclist, seemed more interested in procedure and the damage to the car than the victim lying helpless in the road.

Hope she makes a full recovery soon. I'm delighted to see she's on the mend. 

Hope she has a good lawyer who can negotiate a generous settlement/compensation package with the car driver.

Extremely fortunate to be alive and apparently compis mentis. I hope she makes a full recovery.

As for the lady that hit her, she really deserves the book to be thrown at her. She very nearly killed an innocent motorist through not paying attention. A car is like a gun. It can kill people when used wrongly. I am not sure that negligent driving causing serious injury is sufficiently serious a charge.

Whilst it is very good that this poor victim is not dead or in a vegetative state, this type of statement always comes out after a horrific and avoidable accident. It is part of the sweeping under the carpet process that always happens because nobody wants to deal with the real issues. "Don't worry, everything is fine now, forget about it, move on, nothing to see here."

I really thought that i read yesterday that she had died in the hospital?

Someone on Thai visa suggested that she was murdered , which may have been why you thought that she died

Nissan Almera relatively a new car so I bet she stepped on wrong pedal

Nope, she wasn't paying attention and only hit the brakes (which weren't working), after she smashed into the motorbike and the car skidded throwing the young victim ahead of the car.
