A Nok Air mechanic was killed in a car crash on the Patumwan tollway in Bangkok early this morning (September 23) when he was thrown out of his vehicle after it slammed into a barrier.

 

On being notified at 3am, police, paramedic teams from King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital and rescue volunteers dashed to the accident scene on Chalerm Maha Nakhon Expressway.

 

His blue BMW was broken into two from the impact of the heavy crash and his body was found on the ground. He was later identified as Thitikul Muanthom, a 25-year-old mechanic at Nok Air.

 

His brother said Thitikul was returning from Thong Lor to his home in Thonburi when the accident took place.

 

The police believe Thitikul was driving at high speed and lost control, leading to the crash. They are awaiting an autopsy report and footage from surveillance cameras to confirm their belief.

Nok Air must have paid well. BMW at 25 years old, unless rich family.

 

3am, Cyrcadian rythms, Human Factors, aircraft engineers will know about those. Hotchilli is right, it's the uncontrolled drive into terrain that does it. Abrupt stop, unsurvivable G forces.

 

Darwin at his best.

I guess no one ever gave him a reality talk you are a aircraft mechanic not a jet fighter pilot!

Sorry couldn't help myself R.I.P. this wasn't his first time but it will be his last thankfully no one else got hurt or killed.

Or maybe a second hand BMW? You don't have to be rich to own a second hand German car.

Regarding  his high speed and  the broken car,  has anyone seen  the car parts yard  on the left side of Sukhumvit Rd.,  as you enter Pattaya by the Bankok Pattaya Hospital......I stopped there a few years ago wondering what is is they do, the guy told me   they have "halves" of many makes of car,     so if the front end of your car is destroyed you can go see this guy  who will weld  a new front  to your rear end, easily broken in an accident ........wondering if this  BMW  was   2 halves welded...
