An explosion under a road in Lampang in northern Thailand caused a manhole cover to burst free and hit a motorcycle being ridden by a 22 year old woman. 

 

Ratee-Anothai came off and suffered serious injuries and was in surgery in hospital. 

 

 

She is a seller of pork on a stick in the city. 

 

The explosion happened on Thursday outside a cinema on the Tha Khraw Noi Road in Muang district.

 

It is believed compressed gasses exploded but an investigation is underway.

whoa, that was quite an explosion, was it terrorist related??

Could have been a build up of sewer gas being ignited by passing engines on motorcys or cars of course.  Or maybe fuel of some sort washed into the sewer system ,  seem the sewers here are dumping grounds for anything.

Chances chances are that everyone in the area are pumping their crappers into the drains hence methane gas, I can recall a story of an Australian soldier lighting a smoke in a porta - loo ( boom) he died a few months later from his burns.

Methane, most likely, from waste pipe or from sewage

That was like something out of a sci-fi movie. That woman was absolutely slammed. Hope she recovers quickly. Fortunately, that is a relatively rare occurrence. Bizarre.

Let me think... What else would blow a motorcycle 10 feet in the air and pop a manhole cover like that??  Dynamite?? I'll go with the gas idea, but doesn't have to be compressed.

As if driving in Thailand wasn't already dangerous enough. We now have to content with underground explosions. 

Happened several times in the U.K. this year.
