Video: Who's to blame? CCTV shows what led to horrifying death of Chaiyaphum schoolgirl

CCTV from Chaiyaphum in Thailand's north east shows the moment when a cement mixer was turning on a main road. 

 

This led to the death of 16 year old Nalim Napinrat whose head was crushed under the wheels of the truck.

 

She was on a motorcycle driven by her aunt Nongnuch Santia, 30, who escaped with severe bruising. 

 

Daily News said that the CCTV evidence is now in the hands of the police and will inform their actions in the case. 

 

The driver of the cement truck - 40 year old Kitticha Chuacharoen - was taken in for questioning after the incident but no charges have yet been made. 

 

Nalim, said to be 15 in a Nation news story earlier, was a M5 high school pupil at Satree Chaiyaphum School, said Daily News.

 

She was on her way to pay school fees for the upcoming new term with her aunt.

Not really enough information here to apportion blame. 

 

1. Why is the video cut short? We need to know whether a) the truck was making a U-turn or b) the truck was turning into the premises in the foreground. We also need to know whether c) the truck stopped on time.

2. If the truck was turning into the premises in the foreground we need to ask why? Was it bringing cement to a building site and if so was it making several trips a day just like this one? This is important because then some blame can be apportioned to the building company for not having a man on the ground helping with this tricky manoeuvre across a main road.

If the bike rider had slammed the front brake on there may have been a different outcome...
