Video: Pregnant woman dies after horrific pick-up smash on Koh Samui

Caption: She couldn't get out of the way in time

 

Horrific CCTV footage from Koh Samui showed the moment a woman on a motorcycle was facing impending doom. 

 

Patraporn, 28, was about to cross the road on her motorcycle and was looking behind herself carefully when a pick-up driven by a delivery driver lost control. 

 

She tried to get away but had no chance as the Isuzu slammed into her. She was two months pregnant.

 

Thaivisa notes that close examination of the footage revealed another person on a motorcycle waiting to make a turn on the other side of the road was also hit though she seemed uninjured. This was not mentioned in the Sanook story.

 

The pick-up was being driven by 22 year old Phiphop. He told police that out of shot another motorcycle had cut in front of him causing him to swerve and lose control of his vehicle. 

 

The accident happened in the Mae Nam area of Koh Samui.

While tragic this accident might have been avoided if drivers actually followed the laws of Thailand and used some common sense. I thought red and white markings on the curb indicate that parking is not permitted at any time. Throw that in with an illegal lane change by the motorcyclist and a speeding truck is simply an accident waiting to happen.

 

My wife and I like to travel around Thailand exploring all the nooks and crannies and have come up with a new game on the roads. The goal is to see how long we can go before saying idiot. Our all time high score was 20 minutes...

Samui continues to be the most dangerous place to drive, on this planet. The death toll is at least twice what it is nationwide here. I had a friend who worked for Samui rescue for 7 years. The stories I heard were unbelievable. And he said all of the official numbers were fake. The death toll was far, far higher than what was reported. Anyone driving a motorbike on Samui must do so with the utmost care, and do not even consider driving a motorbike there, unless you have alot of experience and skill. Even then, it is the luck of the draw. If the grim reaper is ready for you, Samui is a grand spot for him to take you. 

Hmm,..I remember some 20 years ago a reporter from a English language local newspaper told me there was one dead on the roads every day on Samui, but he was not allowed to write it !!! it must be a whole lot more now !!!

You must have been parked up in a Tesco Lotus car park, looking at the elderly/disabled/with children designated parking spaces 2o minutes before opening time if that is your all time highest score. 😂😂

Out on the highways surprised that the all time high is more than one minute.

I agree...I alone never last more than a few minutes and then probably because it is so early when I went out.  The idiots on the road far out  number the other drivers many of which have too little experience driving a motor vehicle according to safe standards and traffic laws!
