Thai good Samaritans helped a 43 year old Icelandic man after he cycled into the back of a Chiang Mai provincial authority tow truck. 
 
The cyclist had just left the Chiang Mai 700 Years Stadium and was on his way downtown opposite the Green Lake Resort, reported Chiang Mai News.  
 
Two women and a man on the scene helped to translate to English and provided much needed umbrella cover from the heat of the day. 
 
The victim had blood from a head wound.
 
He was taken to Maharat Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. 
 
The tow truck was parked at the time, police said.

When in Thailand, even cautious drivers from abroad,  get influenced by the Thai nonchalent,  towards road safety awareness...

The truck did something that no western educated cyclist could have expected him to do. Happens to me about every two kilometers, but I know that one day it will be my turn. So far, 33000 km, only one crash, because of an unexpected "concrete breast" in the middle of the road. Only a B cup but enough to loose control at 40 km/h, with sweaty hands.
