A meatball vendor was killed in a horrifying auto accident in Bangkok’s Suan Luang district on Thursday, with the driver reportedly leaving his BMW and a girl who was with him at the scene before fleeing in van.

 

Khlong Tan station police were alerted to the accident early in the morning and rushed to the scene with King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital paramedics and rescue volunteers.

 

They found meatball vendor Udom Saengkanya, 49, dead on the street with a mutilated skull and broken limbs.

 

They also noticed a woman standing next to the white BMW parked nearby. Officers said she looked confused.

 

They learned that after the car hit Udom, the driver called for a van to pick him up and fled the scene.

 

The woman was still in shock and unable to provide the police with any useful information.

 

The police have collected footage from surveillance cameras and hope to identify the offender.

"The woman was still in shock and unable to provide the police with any useful information."   Sing like a canary darlin'. He left you behind now drop him right in it. He deserves it!

In any other country   1 his insurance pays the victim or victims family 2 he gets done for causing death by dangerous driving, leaving the scene of an RTA, etc etc, and properly banged

Not quite a Ferrari but the same mentality and cowardice

In 2016 a friend was hit by a BMW in Phuket. Its was not a fatal crash but it in a strange turn of events my friend was liable for the BMW jumping the curb. He broke his leg in 4 places. In court documents sent overseas he was ordered to pay for the damages to the car. Maybe the meatball vendor is guilty too. RIP

it's not about saving face, it's cos they're drunk or high. He'll turn himself in later, when he's sobered up. One thing about getting hit by a wealthy guy is you, or your dependents,  can expect some kind of half decent payment in compensation. You'll get <deleted> all from Somchai from Nakhon nowhere.

 

Great system, is'nt it! 🤔🤪

MAYBE..... or maybe he will give her 100 million baht to say he wasn't driving and it was someone else and then she and everyone else is safe..

 

all depends on how powerful the driver is...

 

is super powerful, you don't have to flee.....but seems like he's not someone to cross

Very similar to the blood money system we had in Anglo-Saxon England. Take from that what you will.

it would be the same in any other country, if the guilty party has no money you can't get blood out of a stone ....

1.  not if he doesn't have insurance cover

2.  yes ,  he will get done for dangerous driving causing death, same here , same outside. And yes,  probably jail time.
