Policeman falls asleep behind the wheel and crashes into roadside pole in Phang Nga

Recommended Posts

I can't help but go along with the 'drink driving' probability.....

My Thai wife has 2 brothers in Korat that are Thai police...... They are typical Thai cops and 'always drunk' on duty......

Perhaps distracted driving (cell phone), perhaps DUI, perhaps speeding, perhaps brake failure, perhaps a loose nut behind the wheel!

…perhaps he fell asleep as he thought he may have done.

He told the team that he was driving alone from the police station and when he arrived at the scene of the crash, a sharp curve, he was feeling exhausted and probably fell asleep, losing control of the car resulting in the accident.

Lol

What's so funny about that?

I had a policeman friend in northern Thailand that probably fell asleep as well,

and totalled the Police chiefs car. Once the car was repaired, my friend promptly

took a transfer to another part of the country, to save his face. Then eventually quit the

police department, as the pay was not that much and he found other work as

a hotel chauffeur in Bangkok.  Such is life in Thailand.

Geezer

Why did the reporter include the same details twice within such a short article, just to make it longer?  The "Jaws of Death" were invented about 1961 and in 1972 a hydraulic spreader was developed along with a cutter and a ram.  This combination of four devices became known as "The jaws of Life".  When used correctly, the time to remove a roof from a car is down to about two minutes because our fire fighters practice using them in a multipicity of varied situations.  So why did it take the Thai team 30 minutes?

'nuf sed.

This is what a "sleeping policeman" looks like in the UK - an anti speed ramp.
