It is a truck.  Look at the last photo in the original article.  It appears the truck was on the correct side of the road when it was struck.  Of course the motorcade will never be blamed.  In the last photo look at all the vans in the motorcade.  They appear to be on the wrong side of the road.

I have seen official motorcades screaming through pratumnak and jomtien like it was formula one.  How can these vip's even feel safe in their vehicles with lunatics driving like that?

 

On the other hand, I was once with a VIP who was escorted from Don Mueang airport in Bangkok to Pattaya late one night, and I was frustrated that they drove slowly, within the speed limit. Took two hours.

Only happened to me twice in my province but this a-holes drive up the middle of a 2 lane road with lights on and red lights above twirling. They expect you to move into the hard shoulder for them, even though they could very easily stay on their own side.

 

In my experience, the lead car was coming up the middle, there was no hard shoulder for me to go to and so I held firm, put on my full beams and leaned on the horn. He did move over as did the rest but the finish car turned and followed us.

 

Pulled us in and then started to berate me for not pulling in. The wife got stuck into him asking who the F##k did he think he was and asked who was in the motorcade and why he needed this nonsense. Local politician returning from meeting! That was it! No need for these pricks to be doing this.

 

Tucked his tail and got back in the car. 🙂 Richards the lot of em!
