Video: Bus flees scene after motorcyclist and passenger injured in pick-up smash

 

6pm_VI.jpg

 

Dash cam footage from an intersection on Route 4056 in Krathum Baen, Samut Sakhon showed what happened when a green bus started edging across the road. 

 

A pick-up arrived at speed and the driver lost control and slammed into a motorcycle and passenger. 

 

They were reportedly both injured in the incident last Friday.

 

Chanchai Sawangchang who posted the video on Facebook said the bus left the scene at speed. 

 

The accident caused much online comment with both the bus and the pick-up being blamed. But at the very least, posters said, the bus should have stayed at the scene. 

 

Police are investigating, reported Sanook.

Excessive speed by the pick up and not paying attention as to what was happening on the road in front of him....bus pulls out slowly and with caution....happens often,hopefully the injuries to the innocent couple on the bike are not too serious :sad:

 

Another day on the roads here...sadly

That's the pick up truck there is wrong just driving high speed and not pay attention to the traffic 

bus did nothing wrong so why should he stop 

The side street traffic yields to main road traffic;  that's usually how it works.  The bus was supposed to yield to oncoming traffic.  That means WAIT until the oncoming traffic has cleared until proceeding.

 

That said, the pickup may have been going a bit fast.  Could he have avoided the situation if he considered slowing down a bit?  Maybe.

 

What was more disgusting is that the bus just drove off and did not offer any assistance.   Although I could understand that for the driver's own safety, confrontation may not be the best option.

4-0 pickup. How can the driver have missed a slow-moving, bright green bus already 80% across the road in broad daylight unless he was playing with something?

 

The bus did nothing wrong, no impact and was right to drive away. I did the same when a pair of silly buggers on a PX decided too late that they couldn't shoot the gap in front of me crossing the road slowly in front of them, then laid the bike down and slid gracefully, no-contact, underneath my back bumper before slamming into a light pole. Some days you're the windshield and some days you're the bug.

 

Better luck next time.

 

Chokdee nah?

 

Bye bye.

Don't think he "missed" the bus but assumed it would wait until the road was clear but the bus driver didn't.  80%  across the road? :blink:
