Scene of the accident on May 27.

 

BANGKOK — A criminal court on Wednesday found the driver of an 18-wheeler guilty of drunk driving for flattening another car in a May accident, in which the victim narrowly escaped death.

 

Narong Wongpetch, 33, was driving a 46-ton container on a road in Lat Krabang district when it toppled on a Toyota Fortuner, trapping the motorist for almost three hours before rescue workers could extract him from the flattened vehicle. He was later charged with DUI and reckless driving.

So, he was convicted of drunk-driving; a 6,000 baht fine should be a deterrent.

There is no justice in Thailand 

only 6000 b fine 

He was driving in a 18 wheeler and drunk 

No suspected license 

No time in monkey house  

Lucky the other man survived and hopefully he will sue this low life of a scumbag 

Thailand have again and again show it is OK to drive drunk because fine is so cheap

The car driver was extremely lucky to survive than one. He did say he has yet to receive compensation, but is pursuing a civil case.

 

Truck driver should also be banned from driving for life and his (ex?) company should also be hauled into court. Watch the video (turn the volume down first) and have a look at the state of the trucks tyres.

6000 Baht for drunk driving. Is there no end to this madness!

Indeed, and this just goes to show how these morons think. Only a couple of weeks ago the fools were talking about fining drivers50K or 100K with long jail terms for not having a valid license. So no license gets you a whopping fine and jail, whereas driving an 18 wheeler pi$$ed, crashing and nearly killing an innocent person gets you a 6000 Baht fine, they are completely out of their tiny minds.

It's a genuine pity that they can't see it for themselves

I wonder what the fine would have been in UK/Europe/USA?

1 Year in Jail.

Thousands £$€in a fine.

and probably banned for a number of years.

Is there any deterrent in B6,000??????

No wonder there is no improvement on the roads,

6K THB fine for DUI,and crushing a car with someone inside,the Authorities

are not taking the issue seriously,and until they do more

than just talk,nothing's going to change.drive carefully,

the truck driver will most likely be back on the roads today.
