Pick-up truck mows down rescuers who were helping another victim

Rescue officials were mowed down by a black pick-up truck while they were trying to resuscitate an accident victim on the street.

 

At 9.30pm on Thursday (July 9), Ruam Katanyu Foundation in Lopburi province were informed of a motorcycle accident in Ban Mi district. The site of the accident was close to the office of Sawang Ariyo, another rescue agency, so officials from both agencies responded to the situation and were working on trying to resuscitate the man.

 

Then suddenly a black pickup truck showed up to mow down six rescue officials and the injured person. The victims were immediately taken to hospital, but four succumbed to their injuries, including one Ruam Katanyu official, two Sawang Ariyo staff, one of whom was pregnant, as well as the man injured in the motorcycle accident.

 

The pickup driver has been arrested and is being investigated.

The driver will have some lame excuse like 'Brake Failure', 'Lap Nai', 'Wet Road' or 'The Vehicle Lost Control'...not me, the Vehicle !

 

He will plead guilty to something far less than what he has done and walk after paying a paltry 'fine' that he can afford and becoming a Monk for a week.

 

RIP those lost; they didn't deserve it.

maybe he will blame facebook or the TV he installed on his dashboard

If you have tinted windshield, like 90% of Thai cars have, you can't see pedestrians and bicyclists in the dark (or rescues resuscitating a man). It's impossible to see anything that doesn't have lights. I bought second hand car with tinted windshield. First time i have to drive it in the dark was extremely scary. Then I removed it.

 

I bet he didn't see any of them until he hit them.
