Five killed as car hits tree in Sukhothai

By The Nation

 

A man was killed along with his boyfriend, parents and aunt after his car crashed against a roadside tree in Sukhothai's Si Satchanalai district late on Friday night.

 

Si Satchanalai police were alerted a few minutes after midnight that the accident happened on the Si Satchanalai-Uttaradit road in Ban Huay Sak village in Tambon Pa Ngiew.

 

Saranyu Thanomjit, 25, was found dead behind the wheel by police and rescuers. His boyfriend, Nillakarn Kong-in, 26, was killed in the front passengers' seat.

 

Nillakarn's parents - Jane Kong-in, 56, and Prathoom Kong-in, 48 - and Nillakarns aunt, Sakhon Bamrung, 53, were also killed.

 

Rescuers used iron cutters to free passengers from the back seat and rushed them to the district hospital where they died.

 

Police learned from Nillakarn's relatives that the gay couple drove Nillakarn's parents and aunt from Tambon Dong Khu to join a merit making rite at the house of Saranyu's sister in Tambon Sarajit. They stayed there until late at night before they drove the parents and aunt home.

 

Police suspected the driver dozed off, causing his car to crash into the tree at speed.

While this is only a supposition, the police continue to say whatever is easiest.

The fact the car hit the tree "at speed" means the driver wasn't paying attention and driving too fast for the conditions. True, he could have "dozed off" as well, in which case he should have had a break.

I doubt very much if his blood will be checked to see if it was possibly drink/drugs related.

wonder if any of them were wearing seat belts,as we don't know the age and make of the car it is not possible to know if the rear passengers had access to belts,most newer vehicles have rear belts,Thai's don't like wearing them i know that,same as crash helmets,why this aversion to safety equipment exists i do not know,not saying belts would have saved them,not saying they were not wearing them,hitting a tree at speed is not good as this proves.

good point geriatric kid, i am just guessing but it could be just so the homophobes can celebrate.....their level of empathy for anything is fairly low.

Why do we need to know if this man is gay? How is it relevant? The driver and  companion died. The companion's family died. RIP.

Maybe the author is suggesting Gays drive like women?

Sorry, but on this occasion, you seem to be looking for a problem when there isn’t one. The headline simply says: “Five killed as car hits tree in Sukhothai.” 

 

If the two young people in the front seats had been boyfriend, girlfriend or husband, wife the report would have described them as such. Instead they were two young men in a relationship. Why shouldn’t that be reported in the article? 

 

There was nothing secret about the relationship. The driver seems to have been fully accepted and recognised by his boyfriend’s family. Isn’t that one of the things that gay people want when they talk about equal rights? They want their relationships to be reported in the same way as they would be if they had not been gay?

point taken, so you think a couple should be reported as a heterosexual couple...that would be the equivalent as a gay couple....

Police learned from Nillakarn's relatives that the gay couple drove Nillakarn's parents and aunt from Tambon Dong Khu to join a merit making rite at the house of Saranyu's sister in Tambon Sarajit. They stayed there until late at night before they drove the parents and aunt home.

why is the word gay in describing the couple necessary.....is every heterosexual couple going to be described in this manner now.

imagine that was a boyfriend girlfriend in the front seat, the report would then read.....

Police learned from Nillakarn's relatives that the heterosexual  couple drove Nillakarn's parents and aunt from Tambon Dong Khu to join a merit making rite at the house of Saranyu's sister in Tambon Sarajit. They stayed there until late at night before they drove the parents and aunt home.

i don't think so
