PHUKET: The Phuket airport taxi driver who a year ago wiped out six vehicles and killed a motorbike rider in morning peak-hour traffic on Thepkrasattri Rd – with a tourist he picked up from Phuket International Airport still in taxi – is scheduled to finally have the verdict in the charges against him handed down next month.

 

 

In a stunning development, Capt Suporn Mueangkai of the Thalang Police, who led the investigation into the accident that took 217 days to complete, has now confirmed to The Phuket News that the taxi driver charged with reckless driving causing death is Marut Puangbanjong – not Marut Puangsombat, as consistently confirmed by Capt Suporn for the past year.

 

“I am sorry. I confused the wrong family name with another case,” Capt Sporn told The Phuket News.

That taxi driver must have some pull somewhere. A year for this case to be heard is ridiculous. There must be all kinds of CCTV footage.

So what's the driver been doing for the last 217 days I ask myself?
