Thai Thai caption : Door of doom

 

Phrakhanong police in Bangkok went to the scene of an accident in Sri Nakharin Soi 40 opposite Seacon Square where a motorcycle taxi rider died. 

 

Witnesses said that as the victim and a tour bus were passing each other a door to the luggage compartment opened all by itself. 

 

Sawat, aged about 60, died at the scene after suffering a severe neck injury and subsequent blood loss. 

 

The bus is privately owned and police are having the door mechanism examined and investigating possible negligence. 

 

There were no passengers on the bus at the time.

The motorcyclists would have had to be wearing a medieval suit of armor to escape injury in this one. 

Even fully motorcycling body armor would do little to help in this case. 

 

A gruesome sight, I imagine.

Probably get a few sickos down there looking for possible lottery numbers.

Somebody within the company MUST take responsibility for this causing the man's death,

Yes, I am also disappointed that Sanook didn't publish more pictures that showed either the bus or motorbike plates. I missed out on the lottery yesterday so need to take responsibility and get some better lucky numbers.

If they went in the same direction, only one of them would be passing.

So you're saying they went in opposite directions?

I think so as the news story states they were passing each other.

Not having a go at you but some of the streets in Thailand are fairly narrow. Could be the case.

That is just my take on the situation. I will not say more on the artical as I have had a warning and a 1 point penilty for talking down the News content on TV.

Sorry mate, just being pedantic.
