A nine year old girl - happily returning home after buying stationery for the first day of term - was killed with her mother when a Mercedes Benz smashed into them at a Chumpae intersection in Thailand's north east. 

 

Buppha Innok, 41, from Nong Phai sub-district and Phannipha Saenrat, 9, were pronounced dead in hospital following the collision at the Talat Torung intersection on Maliwan Road. 

 

Thai Rath said that 72 year old businessman Sittisak Phimrasee, the car driver, was not looking where he was going and slammed into the mother and child sending them flying across a median strip. 

 

Sittisak was on his way to inspect fields in Loei. 

 

Police are investigating the incident and no charges were yet reported.

OMY...that is very sad.  You can be a defensive driver, but can't really defend yourself in this situation.

Quite upsetting.

In a way it's good he didn't try to make an excuse for hitting the two pedestrians.

 

When I'm driving I know I have to be single-minded in concentrating on the road and potential accidents waiting to happen.

My Thai family seem oblivious to it, constantly asking if I saw the food stall way off to one side, or did I notice the shop we just passed selling whatever.

They are honestly baffled when I tell them I'm concentrating only the road.

If he indeed admitted he wasn't looking, it's really something extraordinary.
