Rescue workers Thursday attend the scene of accident outside Rayong city.

 

RAYONG — A 10-year-old girl died Thursday in Rayong province after an elderly drunk Briton allegedly struck her family’s car, driving it off the road and into a tree.

 

Two other people traveling with the girl were recovering from critical injuries sustained in the crash, which happened just after midnight on a road going into Rayong city. Alan Jamieson, 79, from Liverpool, England, was also injured and is undergoing hospital treatment while police wait to question him.

I expect to see a photo of him giving the family a nice, high wai and a fruit basket in the hospital ASAP.

It seems to be quite normal for these guys to have the attitude it's only Thailand, everybody does it coupled with 'it won't happen to me.'

I know quite a few retirees who regularly drink 5 to 10 beers and drive home thinking that if they are stopped by police it will be 500 baht and carry on. It might be in some cases but when/if they kill someone for sure 500 baht won't work. It is entirely possible a bit of jail time and maybe a flight home is heading his way.

I doubt he will survive the amount of jail time he gets in order to catch that flight home.
