I assume the other "Michelin Man" did not survive. Splatted by another idiot behind the wheel.

This is a nice straight stretch of road. Possibly he was a wee bit tired after spending 14-15 hours behind the wheel doing a delivery to Songkhla. Just saying.

""blames wet road for truck slamming into footbridge"" :cheesy:

How could he have the front to say this ?

Driving at 10-20 kph would not have caused this accident. 

Will the Police accept that excuse ? Depends on you know what.

Does the, frequently used, excuse of wetness carry any weight when  traffic charges are levied and adjudicated on?

 

Is Thepkrasattri Rd the most dangerous highway on the planet?

Next thing they blame "birdy three in one", for not keeping them awake.

No truck driver worthy his name drinks Birdy. M150, or the like, is their choice of stimuli.
