Video: Collision as pick-up overturns at junction in Chantaburi

CCTV from a t-junction in the Laem Sing area of Chantaburi in Thailand's east showed a collision of a Toyota delivery pick-up and a Yaris. 

 

Natthaphon - a Nim Express delivery driver - said the Yaris pulled out on him and his brakes failed.

 

He said he feared for his life and that of his girlfriend as smoke came from the engine compartment. 

 

Seven-11 staffers and members of the public helped the victims out of the vehicles. 

 

The Yaris was driven by a middle aged woman who was taken to hospital. 

 

A child was seen being carried though this was not mentioned in the 77kaoded report. 

 

The media said that there were frequent accidents at this point and they pointed the finger of blame at inter province tourists who stayed at homestays and used restaurants in the area.

Sorry Natthapon, I don't believe you regarding the 'brake failure'.

Probably stamped on the wrong pedal

Any decent traffic engineer would have sorted this out long ago, I was capable of doing that kind of thing 50 years ago.

I imagine many Thai's are also capable of 'sorting' this junction out (and many others), the issue is perhaps one of funding - taxes misappropriated, so who pays for lights and re-engineering of accident black-spots??? - the issue remains that those high up enough in positions of decision making power, in this case to provide sufficient funds for a fix, don't care enough to make it happen.

Agreed that was the cars driver's fault, but the pick up driver could possibly have avoided the collision had he steered to the left and gone behind her. He appears, instead to have steered right as he was in the middle of the road at the moment of collision.

 

He was, IMO lacking in that all important 'defensive driving skill' of anticipating the unexpected.

From Google Maps appears to be the intersection of 3149/3151 and the Yaris driver might have been expecting truck to turn onto road she was exiting.  Road curves making it even harder to judge if oncoming is exiting or through traffic.
