PHUKET: Faulty breaks are to blame for a heavy accident that occurred earlier today (Feb 22) in Kata where a truck crashed into a Minimart store.

 

The driver, Mr Sarayut Poonkhlai, 26, was seriously injured but, miraculously, nobody was killed.

 

The incident occurred around 6am this morning as Mr Sarayut, who works for Phuket Thai Namkeng Lod Co Ltd, was driving his six-wheel ice truck from Sai Yuan Rd to Kata, along Patong Rd.

Never knew that was called Patong Road.

 

Very dangerous intersection that, many times minibuses and unloaded trucks sliding back while trying to go up a slippery hill, coming down the hill people have right of way which is all too often ignored, etc.

The amount of farangs riding their first bike ever, trying to go UP that hill. A sight to behold.

Just curious, are there any vehicles in Thailand with mechanically sound brakes?

They usually leave it to find out when they need to use them, as preventive maintenance is a swear word in the Thai language...
