Woman involved in fatal Chiang Mai road accident wants to say sorry before meeting police

Recommended Posts

Its amazing that whomever is to blame for these deaths (to me its the barrier manufacturers) that the person alleged to have killed someone can just turn up at the funeral. Extremely crass and displaying absolutely zero empathy with the bereaved and to what purpose other than her own ends. Its like an extension of the video, neither party relenting, braking or attempting to pull away and the whole thing leading to a dive into murky waters.

Section of concrete barrier that was knocked over now replaced with steel barrier. Just that section, not the whole side. U turn marking on right hand lane has the yellow cross hatching lines on top of it. Scarily bad road design.

There was no indicator from the CRV (as is with so many Thai) so she have just assumed it waS going straight ahead untill it just pulled across to the right unless there is another camera showing the accident from behind i personally would say 50-50 responsibility .

I also don't see any roadsigns that the lane was for turning right...no arrows nothing..Which makes the trafficsign department guilty as well...

Just read on CM news site that the bridge is old and not up to safety standards. It's going to demolished and rebuilt, along with other ones.
The Vios girl driver has already been to one funeral, wife showed me a video of her crying her heart out, looked a bit false to me.

Well the extent of tinting on windows here cut's down night vision when driving a lot,to be honest i have thought of investing in night vision goggles.

 

Heavy tinting is illegal in Thailand but well, you know.......

This is a very valid point. My wife is constantly griping about getting our windows tinted darker. I refuse and I tell her I want people to be able to see me. There's a reason why very darkly tinted windows are illegal in many Western countries. They are inherently more dangerous to both the driver of the vehicle and others trying to see the driver and figure out what they are going to do.

I don't know about you but I'd be teary eyed having just caused the death of two people so say nothing of the grief of their families. This gal looks cool as a cucumber and who is she talking to if not the police?

Wants to say sorry? Or wants an opportunity to pay the victims off to reduce charges?

To reduce charges, which charges? she'll be charged maximum 1000 Baht.

She said she'd meet with police sometime this week.. Obviously she has a very busy calendar schedule or doesn't see it being of too great importance even though two lives were lost..

 

Why wasn't she escorted to the police station after the accident and tested for alcohol and drugs in her system, as well as giving a full statement to the RTP??

Don’t why there is such a debate over this. Thais cannot drive. End of.

Does it say anywhere she was or wasn't tested for drink and drugs, also the other driver, doesn't say if he was tested, post mortem.

Is it just me or can anyone see any evidence of either car braking? It’s a tragedy for sure, but as the CRV should have been slowing to turn right I don’t understand how it ended up in the klong 🤔

We can talk about the lack of driving discipline, the lack of post accident investigation et al until the cows come home.

TIT, its not important to the authorities because they are lacksadaisical and really dont care.

 

In a civilised world you certainly would not be seeing any cctv footage two hours later, maybe 12months after a court case.

 

Scares me to death knowing the wife legitimately was given a driving licence after 10 days. Cars already been repaired 4 times and one hospitalised bike rider.
