That's why the Mercedes-Benz tag line, "engineered like no other car in the world", has stood the test of time.

Yes, of course, but what amulets do the engineers wear? Those would be the ones to buy!

He fell asleep at 4.30 in the afternoon ???

When he was asleep, his foot must of went down hard on the gas to mangle a car like that.

Cop driving a Merc S class   ???????

 

 

I bet the alcho test was rigged and any proof of him driving to fast and reckless dismissed.

Driving a S class Merc on police salary sounds fishy, corruption as usual?

That's an old S280 from the mid to late 90s and you can tell by the styling and wing mirrors etc. Well made cars those Benz were in the 90s but they kind of screwed up with the W220 which was made from 1999-2005 and only really got their mojo back properly with the W221 in 2006-7. A Benz like the one (S280 W140) in this crash can be picked up on One2Car for like 250-400k baht ... still over priced but good cars if a little pricey to keep on the road for what they are. So, quite affordable for this guy and there are loads of older Thai guys that think this sort of Benz is the be-all and end-all of motoring ... personally, I prefer the W221, much better car altogether.

So what is the difference apart from the faith of the wearer between an amulet,a crucifix and a Star of David ? I see a lot of derision of amulets but not the other two symbols of hope

In the pictures it‘s clearly visible that was an old car.  The W140 series were built between 1991 and 1998. Still an expensive car in Thailand

Not really expansive. Nissan March, Isuzu pickup etc more expansive. 

Only 170,000-250,000 baht 

 

I think he will sell this one very cheaply now. Will be expansive to fix.

Praise the Lord, it's a Miracle! Or praise Buddha, or pass the Magic Amulet, or collect a special piece of Dung.  He's too tired from his collections... How else does he afford a Mercedes.

"The media reported that he tested negative for alcohol"

 

Proper reading goes a long way

...as does believing in this cr*p!

As far as I know, Hi-So's can ask for an alcohol test with 24+ hours delay!

So a higher ranking police officer is tested with no alcohol, as he destroys a German automobile...rrrrrright....

Something similar happened outside my house. He then hit the bank at the side of the road and flew through the upper part of a tree before landing, facing in the opposite direction, a metre from the door of the house opposite. Silly sod had been driving all day, said he was tired but was only 10 km from home so kept going. Wrecked his car of course, and his insurance had expired the day before 😥
