Fourteen people were injured when a bus carrying Chinese tourists overturned in Doi Saket, Chiang Mai on Saturday afternoon.

 

The injured were rushed to Doi Saket hospital, where the conditions of three of the passengers were described as serious.

 

Pol. Col. Pongpeera Karadket, chief of Doi Saket police station, said the bus overturned on a sharp curve on the highway just before 3.45pm on Saturday.

 

The bus had been travelling from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. 

 

According to Sanook, the location where the accident took place is known locally as “the curve of a hundred corpses” due to the large amount of accidents that take place there.

And it will be the curve of 1,000 corpses if the idiots driving past don't start to understand that a little extra care is required when navigating accident "black-spots."

The trouble is that the only black spots these people seem to know about are the ones the had on their face as a teenager.

Too sharp for this driver...  Malfunctioning steering wheel?

It's July. That's a bad month for Chinese in Thailand.

Yesterday, once again, I saw a large tourist bus weaving in and out of traffic as though

he was riding a scooter.  Frequently observe this kind of driving, especially on Hwy 121.

I live on 121 between 1006 and 118, and over the past 10 years it has become a nightmare, especially now with all the damn construction.
