Video: Crazy Thai driving as Fortuner cuts in front of tour bus at Phuket U-turn

Picture: Thai Rath

 

CCTV footage posted on a Phuket page showed a Toyota Fortuner cut in front of a tour bus at a U-turn in Kathu. 

 

The driver waits for three motorcycles to pass before pulling in front of the bus that swerves and hits a power pole. 

 

Power cuts were experienced in a large swathe of the Kathu area yesterday. It took 4 hours for electrical engineers to make repairs. 

 

The Fortuner continued on its way feeling the scene.

 

There were no reports of injuries in the Thai Rath story.

Crazy bus driver too,

Why would you swerve a bus into a power pole when the car would have been much softer, and wouldn't have been able to run away?

I love it how the Fortuner just drives away as if nothing has happened.

Driver of Fortuner must have had something to hide. The front left took a pretty good hit.

My view says the tour bus was going at a pretty good clip.

Agreed. Tour bus drivers seem to be the second worst drivers on Thai roads after the people that drive those silver minivans. Being a complete <deleted> of a driver seems a prerequisite to getting a licence to drive a minivan

My opinion is that the bus driver did extremely well to slow so dramatically in a relatively short distance, and only lightly tap the lamp post. I don't believe he was speeding above limits or he couldn't have stopped that quickly

That lunatic car driver (and his pax if any) should have joined the 60+ people who die on Thai roads everyday. They should be thanking the bus driver for his skill.

Someone has to make a clip of all the accident clips and publish it world wide, and see what it would do to Thailand's public image.....

Just input Thailand Crashes into YouTube and you will see how much already exists.

How do you not see a bus????

 

.... What more can be said about this,? Stupidity in the extreme... 

 

Thr bus driver did well. The fortune driver needs to be banned before he/she kills someone, imagine if the fortuner pulled out in front of those bikes....

They do struggle with how to use u-turns.....

 

Maybe if they learned that they're not piloting a buffaloes anymore, and motorized vehicles are a little bit different.

Shame the bus driver didn't just brake straight.

 

No greater damage to the bus, no power cuts and a harsh lesson for FT t***.

They are not taught to drive and therefore are not taught that it is bad to swerve and they should brake straight.  See it every day on Thai roads and so many times when they swerve they end up killing or injuring innocent people that should not be involved in the accident.

That seems a good idea for anyone considering to jump of a balcony anyway

Thai drivers rather than following 'right of way' rules tend to count on others yielding to them. Trouble is everyone has to be on the same page for this to work, when in reality every one has a different book.
