A pedestrian has sustained serious injuries after being hit by a sedan while crossing a road in Kathu, Phuket. Volunteers rescue workers report that they were notified of the incident at 7.19pm last night at the Kathu Intersection (near the Caltex petrol station).

 

They have arrived at the scene to find an unconscious man on the road. He has sustained a serious injury and was rushed to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

 

The sedan and the driver were not waiting at the scene when rescue workers arrived but the driver later presented himself at the Kathu Police Station along with the damaged sedan.

 

Police are continuing their investigation.

It's the law in Thailand and other Asia countries that not need to stop but must present self to any police station within 24 hours. The reasoning is that an angry crowd might attack and kill the driver. I sort of see the reasoning but can allow driver to sober up in the 24 hours.

That say something in general 🙄, i.e. between a rock and hard place

As sad as such an accident is, but a person in this mental or physical state should not be walking on the road alone.

Obviously heavy disturbed or intoxicated and not able to take care for himself.

How did you come to that opinion. I see a careless jay walker.

I see a person in the video that walks onto a road in the night with oncoming group of vehicles like having a death wish.

May fate me spare from such an encounter when driving.

Holy s...

When I worked in Indonesia and in Africa those were our instructions - don't stop - head for the nearest police station.  Angry mobs soon gather and mob mentality takes over.  In Africa, the driver and any passengers would get out of the vehicle and scatter in all directions.

the law is an ass when was the last time a so called mob beat up a driver, they just use this as an excuse. to go home and sober up, and leave some poor innocent bugger lying half dead in the road

Exactly ... I learned this rule when I sat my Driving Test in Indonesia. When I looked into this a bit more a found a real life incident where a family drove through a remote village, ran over and killed a village girl. Mob dragged a daughter out of car and killed her on the spot.

In my opinion the blame lies squarely with the pedestrian, regardless of whether the light was green or red. He was strolling across the road as if he had all the time in the world, at night, in oncoming traffic...

 

Always look before making a move, whether you're walking or driving and changing lanes or going through an intersection.

It's common practice here to run the red lights because there is no adverse consequences with the law.

 

In that case it's OK to hit the pedestrian and drive off.

I don't recall saying it's OK, just that the practice is common.
