Video: Roadside "Moo Ping" sellers have lucky escape as 6 wheel truck demolishes their business - slippery conditions blamed

A couple who have only recently started a roadside "moo ping" (BBQ pork) business in downtown Krabi had a brush with death yesterday morning. 

 

It was raining so they decided to shelter under an awning - it was just as well they did.

 

Moments later CCTV showed a six wheel truck slide through an intersection on the Sri Pangnga Road and demolish their tables and chairs and destroy a large signpost.

 

 

The couple had lost their hotel jobs due to the pandemic and had only been in business for ten days. 

 

The Isuzu truck driver Theeraphat, 33, said he slowed for the red light by gently tapping on his brakes. 

 

It must have been the slippery conditions that did it, he said. 

 

The cost of the damage to the sign was 100,000 baht and it was expected to be repaired in a few days.

 

The moo ping couple were given 5,000 baht compensation by the owners of the truck.

Fortunately it was heavily loaded with cement and sand which helped it stop quicker, otherwise it could have been more serious.

Initially I thought the pork sellers were being blamed for using too much cooking oil.

          The mind boggles, more like he woke up, saw the lights were red, panicked, slammed on the breaks, more likely.  Another Thai misconception, lots of water never helps when braking,
