Video: Brake failure! Nine vehicle pile up at Chonburi intersection

Caption: Pile up at the lights

 

A rear facing camera on a pick-up caught the terrifying moment when a ten wheel truck carrying a full load of sugar smashed into a line of cars and trucks waiting at the lights at a Chonburi intersection yesterday. 

 

Nine vehicles were damaged and two people were taken to hospital after the accident on Route 331 in Nong Irun sub-district of Ban Bung. It was on the Rayong bound side of the highway. 

 

Chairit, 52, was behind the wheel of the sugar truck. He said he was 200 meters from the intersection when he started to brake - but they wouldn't work. 

 

He said he weaved over the road in an effort to slow down and diverted to the left side to try and avoid a worse collision but was unsuccessful. He used his horn to warn of impending disaster but it was too late. 

 

Natthapong, 24, a football coach was one of the lucky uninjured survivors. His vehicle was jammed between two others - he managed to kick out his window and emerge unscathed. 

 

Police have charged Chairit with negligence and driving an improperly maintained vehicle.

The truck is probably badly damaged, but otherwise it would have been interesting to test if the brakes are working again. Maybe it was just some temporary problem...?

Maybe it was just some temporary problem...?.......yes with the driver.

This is the location where it happened. 331 and 3289 junction.

With the increasing traffic along 331, this junction needs an overpass.

Usually 331,359,33,348 is my driving route from Pattaya to Isaan.
