“The cause of death is reckless driving by both drivers,” Col Nikorn said.
 

Exactly .... the lady should not have pushed in front of a large truck with limited near lower vision. Just suicidal but they usually get away with it.

I"ve just watched the video and there is no way that the truck driver was in any way to blame.

The government is to blame for not insisting that driving standards are raised with better training and tighter regulations.

This lady was not on a suicide mission, nor was she nuts, she was badly educated on how to drive safely!

RIP to this lady, but in Thailand motorcyclists are a menace, whether one's a pedestrian or another road user.

Same same in the UK, with cyclists.

The difference being most UK cyclists actually understand that trucks have blind spots.

Yes, agreed. In my younger years I rode a bike a lot, due to necessity. Had to pass the cycling proficiency test when I was 10 (lots of Highway Code stuff).
