A policeman was saved from death by two members of the public after he drove his Ford Escape into a lamppost on Sukhumvit Road in central Pattaya at 2 am this morning.

 

Chartchai, 52, grabbed a fire extinguisher to put out flames and was aided by Jarinan, 26, in dragging out the driver before the flames took hold again.

 

The driver was taken to hospital with a head wound covered in blood, reported Siam Chon News who said that he was a Chonburi drugs' suppression officer.

 

Chartchai said that the policeman had been driving at high speed.

 

Pattaya police are investigating.

Another gas conversion on the cheap?

Noticed the charred remains this morning, barely a dent on the light post so I suspect dodgy gas install rather than the claim high speed.

Obviously steering failure. I can see a new trend starting here in Thailand.
