Janitor lets insurance lapse before storm damages car

1365-N1-Oct-29-03-Heavy-rain-2.jpg

 

PATTAYA:--An uninsured janitor’s car was one of many damaged when a tree and utility pole fell on it during heavy rain.

Numerous cars were damaged by the falling wood in the Teacher Housing complex at the Chonburi College of Agriculture and Technology in Najomtien Oct. 27.

 

Sattahip District Chief Anucha Intasorn and local officials inspected the damage following the storm, finding a large apple tree and a single power pole down.

 

A Hyundai, Mazda 2 and Toyota Vios owned by Lertsuk Noree, 51, were all damaged.

 

Unfortunately, for Lertsuk, he had let the car insurance lapse two weeks ago and must pay for the repairs himself.

Obviously don't teach their students the art of pruning fruit trees! OR don't know.

I would have thought the building owners were liable for the damage to his car and they or their insurance company should pay.

If the utility pole done the Damage, Isn't it the Responsibility for the Utility company to claim that damage on the car on Their Insurance?  🙄

Pruning wouldn't have affected the storm that brought it down.

Now that is a weird statement:- Of coarse the tree is not going to effect the storm, only he with more power than any of us can do that!

 

If pruned, as it should have been, the tree concerned would not get tangled in power lines and bring them down.

 

This problem causes most of the blackouts we endure up here in the rice paddies.

Lucky it was a tree that hit his uninsured car and not him running into someone else

Exactly....not sure if he is trying to solicit sympathy but strikes me as selfish!

His insurance lapsed two weeks earlier.  Was he still driving it to work every day?

God is Exempt, Hail damage got to claim own insurance . Utility companies Are Not Exempt. :thumbsup:
