Unless it was a Toyota Alphard/Veilfire or Estima, conventional Toyota vans used to transport passengers do not come with a lot of driver aids, if any. To be safe, van drivers should invest in at least a traction-control system. In Thailand, that is known as an 'amulet'. The bigger, the better.

 

Snide remarks aside, RIP to the young lady. Another unnecessary death on Thai roads.

Speeding or Brakes Failed Take your pick? Pity the driver survived and not the young girl becuase he probably driving again next week and might have another accident Did the cops even ask him the basic questions eg Like how fast were you going around that bend mate?Ha

This guy should never ever transport people again. Nor should he be allowed to drive any other four wheeled vehicles. No excuse. RIP.

if only the government would pay as much attention to the actual death toll on the roads as opposed to the potential death toll due to the cornonavirus...

Driver will probably move to Phuket, seeing as a couple of speedboat driver positions might be available soon 😞

RIP for the poor girl, that's a life wasted by a stupid morron,

 

now let's describe the 2 step sequence of events.... the 1st one,  he was speeding and that's the obvious,  which led to the 2nd one, due to the high speed the brakes didn't respond when he tried to activate them
