Caption: Pick-up overshot bend - four dead

 

CCTV showed what happened when a pick-up collided with a motorcycle then a tour bus late Monday morning in Phang Nga in southern Thailand. 

 

Footage from kamnan Pongwat Bunkoi of Bang Toei sub-district showed a pick-up cross over the central reservation at a bend at high speed. 

 

The Isuzu then slammed into a motorcycle before colliding with the tour bus. 

 

Four people died and 12 were injured. 

 

The pick up had 12 people in it and is thought to have suffered a burst tire. 

 

Sanook said the bend is an accident black spot. 

 

Dead at the scene was Nikorn, 42. 

 

There were 13 Chinese tourists on the Mercedes - Benz bus along with three drivers. They only suffered minor injuries. 

 

Dead later were Saijai, 25, Je-Ar, 57 and Mae, 51. 

 

The last two of these victims were on the motorcycle. 

 

Police said it looks like a tire blowout with the driver losing control at high speed.

it looks like a tyre blow, according to Police. 

Surely anyone with a brain could see if the tyre had actually burst.!!!!

Just 4 of the standard 30 deaths a day for Thailand. Totally preventable by driving with due care and attention at a reasonable speed with tyres in working condition that have not been excessively over-inflated.

more like 60+ deaths per day 😎

I see plenty of under inflated ones too; not to mention the bald tyres on Buses and Trucks.

that's simply untrue!

What happens when a pick-up collides with a bus is: they magically get a lottery number guaranteed to win.

That's why there are so many collisions...

Terrible how Thai's don't stop to help when there is an accident. That black car just narrowly escaped but didn't bother to stop to offer help. Not very Buddhist like.

Problem is in Thailand if you stop to help you will often be "implicated" in the accident with demands for compensation.  Therefore people tend to keep moving, sad but a fact of living in Thailand.  It is getting better though, especially amongst the younger Thais.  Having everything filmed does have a positive side sometimes.

12 people in that pick up and he was flying along, he should be locked up for life if he lived!
