Video: Hunt on for Phetchabun pick-up driver who damaged water machine and fled the scene

CCTV footage from near a T-junction in the Ban Nam Deua Tai area of Phetchabun in north east Thailand showed the moment a pick-up failed to negotiate a bend on Saturday evening and smashed into a coin-op water facility. 

 

A social media campaign immediately swung into action to find the miscreant who fled the scene.

A chase proved fruitless but it was soon discovered that the brown Isuzu was in Lomsak further north. The license plate and owner is now known.

 

A phu yai ban (village leader) called Phairin told the media that the coin-op machine was installed by the local authority to provide water to people at the bargain basement fee of 20 liters for 5 baht.

with a bit of luck he might have rushed home and told his gardener to take the blame while he goes skiing in Switzerland for 7 years.

The camera was fitted to a pole... poles are usually the first thing taken out by pick-ups, it was probably shaking in fear.

First it was trees, the concrete electricity poles, now water machines and 7/11s... What will they throw in front of vehicles next?

just a guess , but it looks to me the driver wanted to damage the water machine considering it's an unfair competition to his business, meaning he is the owner of a shop selling water in bottles

At 0.25 a M/C swerves to the opposite side of the road. Was he avoiding the oncoming pick up? OR was the pick up trying to avoid him ? 🧐
