A 40 year old woman driving a Mazda 2 was taken unconscious to hospital after she drove off the eighth floor of a condominium car park in the Rama 3 area of Bangkok late last night.

 

The incident happened at the Rama 3 Residence building A at 11 pm last night.

 

The Mazda crushed four bikes on the ground but no one else was hurt.

Rescuers at the scene noted that wearing a seat belt and the deployment of the steering wheel airbag seemed to have saved the woman's life. 

 

Pictures showed a smashed wall on the eighth floor.

 

The driver was named as Runthip Thongjanrit, 40, who was taken to Charoen Krung Pracharat Hospital.

 

Police are not sure exactly what happened though it is believed that the driver was reversing at the time.

Also construction of these parking garages seem to be too complicated for Thai engineers!

How many times have we heard about similar incidents now? And what percentage of the drivers involved have been women?

From a bigger picture in the original article it does NOT look like she reversed from a parking bay.

The wall is broken on the end of a driveway with a yellow turn right arrow on the ground.

Complete blackout? Running straight into the wall?

Drugs, alcohol, medical problem?

Or reversing and turning?

Blood alcohol level would be informative.

 

 

cerebral angiogram more helpful to demonstrate poor perfusion

Reminds me of ABC Wide World of Sports, when Jim Mckay would cover surfing, and his famous line was always "out the back door."

Pretty good commercial for the Mazda 2.

 

My thoughts exactly, lucky she was not in a Thai built pick-up that does not need to undergo and conform to Euro NCAP  crash testing standards. However the wall she crashed through must be to a Thai standard
