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

 

What calendar are you using?

Looking at the photo, the bus traveling downhill,  possibly crossed the uphill lane and momentum carried it across  into the ditch. I am surprised there were no other vehicles involved.

Is there an inward banked curve in all of Thailand?  I've seen plenty of outward banked curves. You'd think that would be Civil Engineering 101.

look at the scrape marks in the foreground.

Good spot, thanks for that. Indeed, it seems he was traveling in the left lane. :thumbsup:

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 the number increases as nothing is done or learnt.

I've driven this bend a hundred times or more and it's no worse than several others in the country; just needs to be thought of as a danger and driven properly and with a little more caution than many others.    Unfortunately the Thai drivers thought process is lacking and together with the usual problems, like constantly driving with two fingers or one thumb on the steering wheel, misuse of gearbox and braking,( particularly with air brakes), judging speed and distance and general awareness of other road users, we can expect a lot more of the same !

These accidents with means of transport for people, is becoming a daily thing, and still no one doing something!
Wake up, do something!
Here the driver was probably going too fast, or maybe problems with the brakes? Drunk? Under drugs? Or maybe he just fell asleep!

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

...................and potentially as expensive as possible

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

   What happened to the classic brake failure?

Love the branch lying on the shoulder behind the cop. That'll warn them! Would a professional police have orange triangles or warning lights out?
