Too little too late.

and just as incredible the number of drivers who drive too fast and therefore can not avoid an unforeseeable obstacle.

 

 

Exactly. One major point here.

Just a theory, but what if they were drinking on the beach and his friend got so drunk that he wanted some fresh air, perhaps not feeling well. Another theory would be that they had an argument and he wanted to be alone on the truck?

if this report is true, is it not strange that all of a sudden at 4 am a lone biker appears on the road causing truck driver to swerve??!!

Incredible the number of motorcyclists who arrive abruptly on one of the dimensions of another vehicle ..
This will soon replace the brakes that fail without reason.
and just as incredible the number of drivers who drive too fast and therefore can not avoid an unforeseeable obstacle.
With that, the rear passenger was not attached to his seat belt, so he passed through the windshield.
To make this clear to the Thais will be a very difficult affair; the safety belt is necessary if you do not want to pass through the windshield of the vehicle. even you are on the rear seats.
The driver was very lucky to get out alive because if this passenger had touched him in passing, he would also be dead.

 

Sorry, not seeing that the passenger was in the bucket, so no belt, actually!
But if he had been in the vehicle, I guess it would have been the same: no belt and even result.

 

We had a pickup end up in the ditch outside my house at 10.30 one night. The driver claimed he had swerved to avoid someone walking. Now, this is a country road that might see just two or three walkers during the day, and never at night. I struggled not to laugh at his excuse, especially as there was no-one to be seen immediately after. Maybe he saw a ghost and I'm being unkind to him.

And I thought that riding in the bed of a pickup was illegal. But then, whether something is illegal or not has absolutely no relevance in Thailand.

Maybe his mate, the driver had farted.

And if the radio was loud could it be called stinkipation.

Sitting in the back, on the truck bed?  If he'd been inside the truck, with seatbelt, he'd probably survived. But, that require that very rare thing called safety awareness.

 

RIP

2 men in a pickup? Why did one sit in the back?
