Horrific pictures on the site of 77kaoded showed the aftermath of an accident on the Petchkasem highway near the "Meuan Fan" U-turn in Pak Thor district of Ratchaburi. 

 

It happened around 5.45 am yesterday morning.

 

An Isuzu pick up with its roof shorn off was lying in the central ditch facing the wrong way. 

 

It had hit a lamppost in the center of the road before spinning. 

 

Three young people were dead at the scene. 

 

On the back seat was a 19 year old woman.

Propelled out of the vehicle and lying in water mixed with fuel were two males, one 23 and one 17 years old. Both were from Ratchaburi. 

 

Police said that the pick-up had been fitted with a dash cam but this had come off. 

 

They were trying to find it in the water of the drain and hoped it might indicate exactly what had happened. 

 

Accidents on Thailand's roads can legitimately be described as carnage, notes Thaivisa. 

 

About 24,000 to 26,000 are believed to be killed annually on the nation's roads making it one of the worst for road accidents in the world.

The last information was 12,000 dead in 10 months, reason to be proud of the improvement or to be afraid of what awaits us in the month and a half that still remains of 2019!

The boys will have dismantled the dash video camera before leaving to hide what they wanted to do!

I used to cringe everytime we would see pickups with people in the back mostly children speeding along. I would just say "eggs". The government came so close to doing the right thing and for once I was praising them. Think the praise lasted a week, then the government back tracked. Stop this practice including baht buses and 100% helmet policing and watch the road death numbers fall.

Thais are not open for change on the roads.

The government pay lip service by introducing laws which are never enforced.

To be honest most Thais are happy just the way things are, only westerners as such pay any notice!

Considering the young men are both dead, how do you think they will be able dismantle anything?

These young blood should not be driving. At least they didn't cause any harm to innocent lives.
