CCTV footage from Ayuthaya showed the moment a Mazda car driven by a Thai woman crashed through a gas station fence and wound up inches from colliding with petrol pumps. 

 

The accident happened around 7.30 am Wednesday at the Esso service station in Bang Ban district.

 

The black Mazda with Bangkok plates hurtled through a fence used to seal off the gas station before colliding with a pile of water bottles that are given away to customers filling up.

 

Driver Chalisa Suwankham, 38, and a boy in the car by the name of Kittichai Bunyata suffered only minor injuries and were taken to Phra Nakorn Sri Ayuthaya Hospital. 

 

Fire crews doused the gas station area in water amid fears there might be a fire. 

 

Owner of the gas station Malai Lertlikhitrat, 72, said she didn't see the accident but mentioned that her staff had heard the sound of braking on the road before the car crashed. 

 

She said it was very lucky that the car had not hit the gas pumps as there could have been an explosion making things much worse. 

 

Local police are investigating and will interview the driver again to try to determine what happened.

Sound of braking?  I think they probably heard some squealing tyres but surly the brakes must have failed.

While obviously speeding, did she swerve to avoid the oncoming pickup, which looked like it was overtaking another vehicle?... 

 

Its lucky there were no motorcyclists, pedestrians, Gas Station employees or anyone else in the impact zone...   Her speed nearly cost her and a boys life...
