A well known old Thai guitarist who goes by the name of "Guitar King" was involved with a collision with a pedestrian in South Pattaya on Saturday night.

 

Lam Morrison (also known as Wichai Nuamjem) aged 74, was on his way to perform at Walking Street when he was involved in a collision with Loppraphan Sariphim, 40.

 

She was treated for a head wound and other lacerations at the scene before being taken to hospital. She also hurt her right leg.

 

Lam told Kep Khao Pattaya that the woman walked out and he did not see her.

A YouTube video of the aftermath showed the rocker's black BMW 325i with a smashed windscreen by the side of the road.

 

Online pictures of Lam name him as the "number one guitarist of Thailand" where he is known as Guitar King.

Smashed windscreen but no other frontal damage shown.    So the female pedestrian vaulted from the pavement into his screen ?   Guess a no fault accident on his part due to the fact he was driving a BMW ?

nah. it's too old. probably half a millions worth if that. he ain't getting away with shit. 500 baht and wai for you clumsy guitarist, that'll teach ya . . .

true but then the 325i sport back in the late 80's was a bloody good car and older than dopeys

hit someone with that and they'd probably be no damage to the front. solid car

This whole thing is most likely down to driving too fast and / or being under the influence of some mind altering substance. Unfortunately it usually is here in Thailand.

Has he got himself a new car - what happened to the red thing that looks like he made it himself?

Definitely not a laminated windshield.

This kind of windshield should be banned in Thailand and the rest of the world. 

He is lucky she did not fly through his window and kill him.

Lam Morrison, a beer bar player is in some way comparable to Keith Richards? I wouldn't have thought so. Unless it's just their ages you are comparing.
