Thailand road carnage: Motorcyclists in lucky escape, but others not so fortunate

Thai caption: Two bikes cheat death

 

Dash cam footage from a pick-up waiting at a red light at the Sa Khwan intersection in Sa Kaeo province showed a truck plow through the red light on the opposite side of the road. 

 

The truck - carrying waste from a sugar factory - collided with another truck moving on the green light before smashing into several other vehicles. 

 

Two motorcyclists crossing the intersection avoided death by fractions while another rider waiting at the lights managed to jump off before his vehicle was crushed.

 

The sugar factory truck driver who caused the carnage fled the scene.

These 'sugar trucks' are all about 70 years old, last maintained / oil-changed in 1985. Seem to cause accidents all the time also. I always give them a wide berth on the roads, but stuck at a traffic light.. Hub of Carnage.

I was taught to always......Always.......check both directions as you pull away from traffic lights just in case a moron is running them. I can see the sugar lorry may be partially obscured by the lorry on the inside, but even so a little caution by the other driver may have saved a collision. 

Sorry,....I have just found the main problem with the above paragraph regarding the roads here...........the first three words.......

I think he did instantly, whilst the truck was on its side heading for the car with the dashcam.
