Under the influence of medicine... seems farangs are not much better then Thais. Lucky she escaped without serious injury. Cars can be replaced, life cannot.

Must have been some slam into the tree, as it is reported that she was in reverse. Under influence of medication, looks questionable from an insurance claim. Thankfully only minor injuries.

Perhaps not in reverse, (my assumption) but certainly hit it backwards, must have been some impact.

Yeah, well, she wasn't reversing as in using the reverse gear.

Im talking about the person in the report who is a foreigner and seems to be ok with driving under the influence of medicine.

Driving after taking any medication which can impair your driving skills should be avoided. Meds usually have advice on the pack and you should be aware of the effects the med can have. 

Do you not read carefully the tiny writing, or the paper inside before driving?    LOL

Yes and it show that foreigners are as bad as Thais plenty of Thais that have not made any accidents too just like you. You take it too personal. Its not as if foreigners are superior to Thais while many seem to think so.
