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

That explains everything !

Hell of a trip; eight floors. Speaks for Mazda, not so for the parking, its builders and certainly not for its driver - unless the brake failed. 
So far I always thought that only foreigners fall of higher floors, without the comfort of a safety belt and airbag though .......... 

The barrier compensating for the hole in the wall speaks for itself too - welcome to Thailand!

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

All have been female. What else would one expect?

I do not know how fast she was going but if you ask me that barrier was really not allowed to break. Guess a single wall of 10-15CM thick max as usual?
There should have been steel in those barriers at least, certainly at that height. 

One wonders how hard you have to hit the pillars to make everything come down. Or a bit more serious earthquake.. Doubt most buildings survive.

Surprising she didn't die of a heart attack on the way down... That drop would be very very scary before the impact!

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

It's not the engineers it's the builders cutting corners and shoddy workmanship.  One of these days a few will just fall down like in China.

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

Which Thai built pick ups would these be?

Blood alcohol level would be informative.

I would go for IQ check

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?

No wonder the wall broke apart like thin paper made in China :cheesy:

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. 

she landed on her head.
