He then went the wrong way up a down ramp onto the expressway at Sri Nakharin colliding with more vehicles including a taxi. 

 

There were three French tourists in one of two severely damaged taxis.

 

In all three cars and three motorcycles were damaged in the rampage.

It seems that is not a crime in Thailand. Or at least not a serious crime.

Attempted manslaughter ?

 

There is no such thing, nor can there be. Manslaughter has no intent so to attempt to kill someone would require some form of intent.

Valid point...  then, Grievous bodily injury by dangerous driving and Grievous bodily injury by careless driving under the influence of drink or drugs ...

In the cases of death... Vehicular Manslaughter... 

 

When someone knows they may injure or murder someone through their actions of driving dangerously or drunk... then the charge of attempted murder seems applicable.

It's just a Thai normal behaviour.

Not another runner...!!

 

Something about "leaving the scene of an accident??"

 

They should read it again. 

It means, "must not leave the scene of an accident."

 

Not do a Forrest Gump and run.
