Why not just 'human under a bus'?

Unbelievable that any driver would not be aware of a pedestrian being dragged by his vehicle.

Brain dead bugger should not be on the road.

Don't know what sort of driving experience you have but I drove 44tonne trucks in the UK for 42years and believe me even now with multiple mirrors and cameras you cannot see every corner of the vehicle at one time and do you really think a human body under a 14 wheel 44 tonne vehicle would make a bump.

Tragic yes but pedestrians also have a duty of care.

His nationality matters to TAT. If he's Chinese it could shave a million off their figures; if he's European a drop of 2 can be expeected.

And with that in mind would you say that is a suitable vehicle to be used around the narrow busy streets of Pattaya?

Tourists on the bus looked on in horror as the tourist was retrieved from under the bus: his left arm was detached and he was in a coma, reported Sanook. 

This kind of thing is a VERY common occurrence in China. People just get crushed there all the time due to a combination of ME ME ME culture, overcrowding, and well giant buses and trucks with low viability.

 

This is just the beginning of it for Pattaya. We haven't even reached "peak China" yet her at all, just the tip of the iceberg.

This is very disturbing to hear, I guess he should have known better , you need your eyes and ears open at all times out at the traffic.

 

But we have another poster in this thread claiming a Thai lady on a baht bus said the victim had been pushed ? There should be enough eye witnesses to confirm this. 

Joe, the man who died in the accident, was not pushed, or committed suicide or groped by someone, etc, etc. He was walking along Pattaya Tai and, apparently, stepped in front of a tour bus which was exciting Soi Day Night Plaza onto Pattaya Tai;  simply a tragic accident.

Thanks very much for this. Respect.

With visa, scams, falang pricing, and other issues here, I feel daily dragged under the bus and then backed over for good measure.

Come to Thailand holiday and leave missing an arm (Assuming he lives).
