Carnage in Rayong: Caused by a rescue vehicle going through a red light on way to another accident

A rescue pick-up on going fast with its siren wailing on the way to an accident scene caused a far more serious accident at an intersection in Rayong.

 

Muang District police at the Ban Laeng intersection found 11 motorbikes, a  rescue foundation pick-up and a car all damaged in the pile up. 

 

Four women and two men were taken to hospital. 

 

A Mitsubishi Triton driver called Niphon Maneethaopho, 46, said that a rescue vehicle went through a red light fast with its siren blaring. 

 

It collided with a Nissan March in the middle of the intersection and plowed into motorcycles waiting next to his vehicle.

 

A Sawang Porn Kuson (Rayong) foundation rescue driver Natchaphon Raksakit said he had been responding to a call about an accident in Nata Khwan.

 

Police are investigating.

With decent driver training/education these kind of accidents can be avoided.

Sure, now you´re talking about changing the education program for a driver license. Of course, that´s needed and would lower the higth amout of deaths in traffic. It would also stop idiot drivers from driving out half way in an intersection when they hear and see an ambulance, right? So, still have to give way for emergency viechles, and if people are awake in traffic, then they can clearly both see and hear an ambulance before they make the stupid decision to drive half way out in an intersection.

I am just amazed over that it actually was 11 motorbikes and one more car involved. The stupidity is on a very high level.

Hilarious again!!!  What does anyone expect?  That thais drive with common sense, responsibility, Hell NO!!!!  

Look, put it like this....if I was robbing a bank and needed someone capable of driving like a bat out of hell, I'd make sure they were a 100% Thai citizen.  Now staying alive - that's going back to the OP and another problem all toghter....
