Police in Hat Yai in Thailand's south are looking for the diver of a Toyota Camry after a married couple were killed in a collision on a bridge over the railway tracks. 

 

Hat Yai police found the Camry abandoned on the bridge on Petchkasem Road. It had Bangkok license plates - ภต (phor tor) 296. 

 

Nearby was a Honda Wave on its side. 

 

On the road surface 4 meters below were Sakkarin Sae-tan, 63, and his wife Somporn, 60. 

 

They had suffered head trauma and were dead at the scene. 

 

There were no witnesses but Hat Yai police said that the couple had been to the market and were heading out of town while the Camry driver was heading into Hat Yai. 

 

The incident happened around 5 am Sunday morning near the Hat Yai railway station.

Caution when motoring over bridges or raised roads!

Have read too many reports lately of persons ending up dead, one level down.

 

Sad for the couple to die this way in their early sixties.

R.I.P for the old couple

Fleeing the scene on foot and leaving the car behind with license plates, what a stupid thing to do, should be an easy to find search

These drivers are cowards and totally stupid, as if they won't get found out. The shocking thing is that it happens in so many cases of a crash, that by definition, at any one time, the roads must be full of many thousands of stupid Thai cowards.

Cowards

Sociopaths is more apt.

Btw..there's a police box less than a 100 m away AND the police HQ another 100 in the opposite direction

Amazing Thailand

Hell is not big enough for all the bad drivers, that's why they are still driving.

Unless it's a stolen car.

I gather the reason to pull a runner is to be sober when they catch you. Then, it's nigh on impossible to get blamed for being drunk while driving and causing the crash.

 

I guess the folks who were killed weren't wearing helmets. 4 meters is a serious fall but they died of head trauma. With helmets, who knows, they may have lived.

 

They need to pass a law: flee the scene of an accident is a minimum of 5 years.
