A man met a horrific end in a fiery accident involving his Mazda Cronos sedan and a Toyota Vigo pickup truck yesterday (July 12) on Suwintawong Road in Bangkok’s Nong Jok district.

 

Alerted to the accident, Lam Phak Shee station police rushed to the scene with fire trucks.

 

They found the bronze Vigo severely damaged in front in the collision with the bronze-grey Mazda, which was engulfed in flames.

After putting out the fire, officials found the charred body of the driver in his seat. He was later identified as Issara Bangyai, 47. Forensic staff ruled the cause of death as burning. Two people in the pickup truck, one male and one female, suffered injuries and were rushed to a nearby hospital.

 

Witnesses reportedly told police that they saw the Mazda driving in circles in front of a car showroom and speculated that the driver might have been testing the car, before the pickup truck jumped a traffic island from the opposite side of the road and smashed into the car, causing it to catch fire.

Police are reviewing CCTV footage from the showroom and nearby traffic lights to determine the cause of the accident.

Horrific... Did they breathalyse the driver of the pickup? Speeding?

 

What causes an explosion such as that on impact. I thought petrol / diesel tanks are built not to fracture on impact. Could the Mazda have had an NGV conversion?

 

There’s no way to telling what type the Mazda is, but looking at the wheels it doesn’t look like a new model and thus the suggesting link to the showroom seems a little tenuous.

The barstool detective in me is wondering if this was not an older car with a crappy NGV conversion.

Surely that's a pathetic response in itself.

Very high fuel pressure pumps are commonplace now.  If a fuel line gets broken and there is still power going to the pump it can spray fuel at a high psi rating over a hot engine.

I just googled mazda high pressure fuel pump check.

Depending on model it can be 64 to 92psi. Picture that coming through a cracked fuel line.

If your car is not fitted with an inertia cut-off switch then it's worth considering fitting one.

Cuts all power in the event of an accident if mounted properly.

Can be easily re-set if the car is still get home drivable.
