PHUKET: A small ferry operating between Phuket and Koh Yao Yao, off Phuket’s east coast, has been suspended from operating after a pickup truck that was not tied down rolled off the boat and into the sea off Koh Siray yesterday afternoon (Jan 22).

 

 

 

The ferry, called “Koh Yao”, departed for Koh Yao Yai at 2pm, Phuket Marine Office Director Wiwat Chitchertwong told The Phuket News.

The accident occurred at about 3pm while the ferry was returning to Phuket, he added.

 

“There was nothing to prevent the vehicle from falling into the water. The owner of the truck did not apply the handbrake, and there were no tethers to prevent the truck from moving,” Mr Wiwat said.

Probably went well the last time, so they decided to scrap the precautions. Seems familiar?
