PHUKET: Two people died when a crane truck slammed into a roadside power pole while descending Karon Hill towards Chalong late yesterday afternoon (May 30).

 

The accident, near where Soi Suksan 1 joins Patak Rd as it crosses the hills between Chalong Circle and Kata, occurred at about 4:50pm, said Karon Police Deputy Superintendent Lt Col Pratuang Pholmana.

 

Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the truck cab crushed by the power pole, which itself had been broken and brought down across the four-lane divided road.

My wife was driving and overtaken by this speeding truck. She wasn't surprised to see it crashed when she caught up to it. 

It was raining hard at that time and he took that sweeping corner at speed. 

Sorry for the innocent Burmese guy getting killed. Wrong place wrong time.

Its just total carnage, nobody died of covid yesterday but 2 died plus however many more due to reckless driving, many of these idiots are incapable of realisation of the possibilities of a collision. Wet roads unladen commercial vehicle whacky backy driver, thank god for lockdown i survived another 8 weeks here.
