Sri Racha: Police disagree with minivan driver after death of factory worker

A minivan driver told police that he wasn't going fast after he hit and killed a factory worker on Sukhumvit Road in the Bang Phra area of Sri Racha on Thursday morning. 

 

However, after examining markings left on the road and the extent of the damage to the van - along with the testimony of 12 passengers - they arrested Jaroon, 53, the driver of the Chonburi to Laem Chabang service.

 

Police said he was speeding.

 

The accident happened near the PTT gas station heading towards Chonburi.

 

Found dead with multiple injuries in the central reservation was 45 year old Thanchanok. Her Honda Click was completely destroyed 50 meters away. 

 

The minivan was smashed in the front with a shattered windshield after hitting a lamppost. All four tires were punctured. 

 

The dozen passengers suffered whiplash injuries. 

 

Jaroon claimed he had not been driving fast and the motorcyclist crossed his path but didn't make it. She had come out of the gas station and was heading to make a U-turn, he said. 

 

He is now helping Sri Racha police with their inquiries.

That's not a phrase I'd expect to hear regarding the Thai police.
Usually it's more like 'he admitted his guilt and was charged'.

 

they need all the 'help' they can get! 

 

sort of idiot that'd blame faulty indicators... 

"but they were only working half of the time!"

So, condemned by un-faulty brakes

I can see it now, in keeping with tradition: He was charged with having correctly working brakes.

You can always tell my background with such phrases!

 

Here it seems to fit neatly for a change.

Your background?

Is there enough space here to tell all the instances of you 'helping the police with their enquiries'?

Of course it was the mc riders fault, van driver is just the same as every other driver here.

Never take responsibility for their actions, blame somebody else.

Poor mc rider is dead due to Jaroon speeding, a life lost yet again by a selfish speeding driver.

Obviously no brake failure this time......

No amount of money would get me into one of those death traps. The companies who operate them must fire any person who shows that they are a safe driver 😞

Like the way the Police  offer up their verdict like they are the judges, witnesses are often useless.
