Caption: Horrific! Stuck in a wheel arch

 

A pillion passenger died and a 16 year old motorcycle rider was severely injured after a pick-up went into the back of them on the Nakorn Sri Thammarat to Surat Thani road yesterday afternoon. 

 

Thanatporn Aksorn, 18, a second year computer science student in Thung Song was propelled into the wheel arch of a Honda CRV. She was trapped from the waist down and the wheel had to be removed to get her free. 

 

She was later pronounced dead. The rider of the motorcycle Kanyanee Sawangwiwat, 16, was thrown onto the roadway but survived. She is a student at the same college as the deceased woman.

 

Naew Na reported that a pick-up with a refrigerator unit on the back had lost control and collided into the back of the motorcycle shunting it forward. 

 

The driver of the pick-up is in the custody of the Thung Song police. 

 

The accident occurred on Asia Highway 41 southbound in Thung Song district.

Could that ' the flask was under the brake pedal' all over again, seriously, not much can be done whereby cars will hit motorcycles from behind, this is the worst scenario and a nightmare for every rider...

She is gripping his arm and very much alive there, Poor guy having to see that level of suffering. I no longer ride a bike here as the chances of getting hit in the rear are way to high

It also appears that the victim's leg is laying on the ground 

under the back of the vehicle. Horrendous accident RIP.

Be extremely proud you have the rare intelligence to understand, and act accordingly here in Thailand....it's a country that maintains the highest road kill (which including side walks).

RIP

 

For what it's worth, in my 20 years in Thailand I always avoided using motorbikes, certainly if I wasn't the driver, just toooo dangerous. Then there are potential medical costs after!😳

Too bad they didn't think to let the air out of the tire immediately, so she could breath easier.

Eiw... that is an incredibly gory way to go out.... I hope it was quick and she didn't suffer, but fear otherwise. 

 

Once again, dangerous driving causes the death of an innocent. I wonder if brake failure will be the excuse or will it be a flask stuck under the brake pedal... They can't blame the wet road and the rain this time...  

 

The 'works' trucks, particularly the refrigerated ones seem to be driven by the same lunatics who drive the vans.

 

The penalty will be minimal, the deadly driver will be on the road before we know it, no one will learn from this, the message that dangerous driving will be punished severely will not be sent out.... life goes on, but sadly not for one innocent victim. 

You got all the bases covered there !!

You can get hit walking here because the idiot thai drivers are driving on the wrong side of the road Very tempting to throw a rock through there windscreen when they do that
