A horrific road accident in Trang province on Sunday injured about 20 people and killed a 10-year-old boy.

 

At 7.30pm, paramedics were summoned when a truck and pick-up slammed into each other with such force that the truck flipped over and the pick-up landed in a building nearby.

 

The injured were mostly passengers in the pick-up, who were heading home, including the boy who succumbed to his injuries in hospital.

 

The truck driver said he was driving on the left lane when he noticed the pick-up had suddenly shifted to his lane and was driving in the opposite direction.

 

The two vehicles then crashed, and the truck flipped over while the pick-up landed in a nearby building.

 

The pick-up driver said the rain had affected his vision and he did not realise a truck was coming at him from the other side.

did he have a windscreen?

 

(not joking.. i've seen it all here!)

 

 

My personal favorite is the motorcy drivers holding an umbrella out in from of them. I can't believe it's very effective in blocking the rain but certainly effective in blocking their vision. TIT

Not true.  He sped up because the other vehicle changed lanes in order to avoid the raindrops that were landing on his windshield.  Sad this happened, but it is not the first time and it will not be the last.  There are idiot drivers in every country.

'nuf sed.

Carrying people in the bed of a pickup should be stopped now.

How many times have we heard that call?
