Thai Rath reported that a woman - eight months pregnant - was killed after a collision with a six wheel truck in the Wang Thong area of Phitsanulok in Thailand's north on Sunday. 

 

Rotjana, 35, was riding a Honda Scoopy-i that was involved in a collision with an Isuzu truck carrying earth on the Ban Nern Sawang to Ban Klang Road. 

 

She suffered a head injury and died on the way to Wang Thong hospital. 

 

Her two other children - a girl aged nine and a six year old boy riding pillion - were only slightly injured but were also taken to hospital. 

 

Police said that the mother was taking her children to buy noodles when she lost control of her bike. 

 

They are interviewing the driver of the truck again to ascertain exactly what happened.

Brake failure is the usual one.

There is no political will to change. Enforcing even a simple helmet law is beyond the capability of the inept, clueless and corrupt authorities. Sadly, this sort of tragedy will continue with sickening regularity.

There is no political will and even less public will to change either.

the trucks carting the red dirt fly along the roads at the best of times so they can take more loads in the day, I have to drive past them on the way to our land(there is a couple of farms where they load up ) and they are idiots the way they drive, the more loads the more money. In many cases money comes before anyone elses safety/road rules on the roads with these people and they just dont give a stuff

The way they travel here is extremely dangerous. When are they seriously going to make some effort to stop this insanity?

Yes, only a complete moron takes children out on Thai roads on a scooter.

 

 

And it's not being racist, some idiot Westerners do it too, and they're even more moronic. 

 

and pregnant to boot, near term no less.

I recently drove about 10 kilometres on a largely dark busy road, and counted 12 - 12! - bikes with no rear light. One of them had two small children on it being driven by an adult. There really are no words to describe how utterly stupid these people are. Absolutely no common sense or any understanding that they could die at any second. Bizarre.

Oh, for goodness sake, how long have you lived here? A considerable time I would bet and yet you still don't see that families such as these can only afford a bike. It is the family car and it takes them where they need to go.

If the bike is all you have got, then you use the bike. Stop using your western standards to think out a situation like this. In their shoes and all that! 😞
