Double standards again. Stating that the driver lost control. When it's a lowly transport driver it's always reported that the vehicle lost control.🙂

Pickups are unstable compared to a sedan.

Indeed they are, a fact that escapes most Thais who buy them.  They stick 10,000 Baht down as a deposit and drive away a 3 litre pick up that they can't drive, control, park, manoeuvre in traffic. Then after one year, if they haven't already destroyed it in a perfectly avoidable crash, it gets re possessed by the bank because they can't afford the monthly payments.  A generalisation I know, but there is always some truth in every generalisation I know.

Hit some gravel on a bend going too fast, your back end tries to overtake you, hit the kerb sideways and over you go !!
Happens a lot ( nearly happened to me once 🥴).

Not drunk ? Thai cop in the early hours of the morning who has a vehicle accident ?...okay, sure, of course....😏.

 

Anyhow, good for the driver that he made it out with only minor injuries.

Are you kidding me? How is this good that he only had minor injuries? All it does is allow him to think that his amulets work and therefore can drive drunk and recklessly whenever he wants without being harmed. How long until this moron kills somebody? I'm sorry but he should have either died or had life changing injuries so severe that either he can no longer drive or thinks more carefully about the way he drives.
