A ten wheel truck driver told police in Bangkok that he thought he had been hit by a car or pick-up as he drove slowly in the left lane of the Lak Si intersection bridge heading to the Bang Khen roundabout last night.

 

Santi Thonthong, 50, stopped and got down from his cab to be confronted with a gruesome sight.

 

A motorcyclist suspended from his motorcycle was wedged into the back of his truck. 

 

Samian Luangjan, 44, from Khon Kaen was pronounced dead at the scene. 

 

He was found in possession of electrical tools used in the air-conditioning trade. 

 

Santi said that he went weak at the knees and nearly collapsed when he saw the horror that confronted him.

 

He had just made a delivery of earth to Chang Wattana Soi 5 and was on his way back to Ram Inthra.

 

The body of the dead motorcyclist was taken to Bhumibol Hospital for autopsy after workers from Ruam Katanyu foundation cut him free. 

 

Investigations continue.

Indeed. And it must have been serious speed by the mc rider, if the driver of a ten wheel truck would've noticed  it.

Those trucks take the fast lane and drive full speed pushing all other traffic to the side.

Looks like the truck has no rear lights!!! Maybe very very dim?

Yet a other unessesary loss of life. 

 

RIP

 

The police should come down hard on those not abiding by motoring and traffic laws which includs foreigners, but the Police seem to turn a blind eye to the daily and relentless law breakers... 

 

It's not rocket science. Enforce the law... Simple.. Or maybe not?

There are no lights because the ignition is off .

Yes, they (the Thais) do change when they drive/ride their vehicles.

To be fair, we don’t know if the lights were on at the time of collision and it would be one explanation why the cyclist did not see him sooner.

 

For all we know, the absence of tail lights might be why he was driving slowly in the left lane.

 

Just thinking out loud.
