A well known singer who fronted a band that performed at pubs and parties all over Chainat in central Thailand was found dead at the scene of an accident on Pahonyothin Road (Route 1) last night.

 

He had driven his Toyota Altis into a lamppost. The car had most of its roof shorn off and was almost unrecognizable 15 meters away from the dead body of 23 year old Akkarachai or "Ice" who was in pieces in wreckage by the lamppost.

 

There were marks on the roadway stretching 30 meters, reported Naew Na.

 

Quoting a friend of the deceased, Naew Na said that before the accident Ice had been at a party at a resort in Manorom district then had gone from there to a restaurant where his last song was Labanoon's "Faen Gao" (ex-boyfriend).

He then said he was going home to his girlfriend in Nakhon Sawan province 25 kms away. 

 

On the way he was making a video call with his girlfriend when suddenly there was a loud noise, the video image twisted and then the signal went dead.

 

The girlfriend expected the worst and went looking for him. The accident was confirmed when she reached the crash site.

 

Muang Chainat police warned people not to use phones while driving.

Only a complete and total ay-hole could laugh at the loss of a life...       

I don’t know why he bothered calling her. By the look of the speed he was going he would have been with her in a few minutes. Hopefully the lamp post can throw some light on what happened.

We all know about "face" and that losing face is to be avoided in Thai culture. 

 

Question: does one lose face when making a dumb driving error? Did this accident cause embarrassment to his family?

 

Genuine question.

No, because it was the fault of the lamp post, or the phone, or the road conditions, etc, etc. Anything but the driver was to blame. Face intact. 

Actually it was karma/fate and there was nothing he could have done to prevent it.  When it is your time, it is your time.

It seems that the Penny hasn’t dropped to at least one person. 😐
