The driver of a truck, blaming failed brakes, has collided with another truck along with cars, pickups and motorbikes on Patong Hill late yesterday afternoon. The incident caused about three hours of traffic mayhem, particularly for traffic heading out of Patong. The delay also caused bank ups right through Kalim as Kamala traffic was trying to get through Patong.

 

“Stuck on the Kamala-Patong road, can’t even get into Kalim. Haven’t moved for 30 minutes.” Message from listener ‘Richard’ to Phuket’s 102.75 FM The Thaiger, at 7.15pm.

 

Patong Police were notified of the accident near Suwankeereewong Temple (Wat Patong) on Phra Baramee Road, the bottom of Patong Hill, just after 5pm yesterday afternoon.

Of course it's the bad brakes.  It's ALWAYS the failed brakes, and NEVER the bad driver.

Two buses collided at the top of that bend this morning.  Appears one swung too wide in its lane and clipped the other one. Blocking the two uphill lanes.

 

Damaged truck was still parked by the 'Blast Wall' at 0730 this morning.

More likely a driver's brain failure.

Somebodies expensive BMW had brake failure near Kajonkiet School today, so did the minivan behind him, guess their were a few more cars involved, but they were gone by the time I passed. Traffic was backed up all the way to the Tesco Lights. Expensive morning for some people
