PHUKET: -- A runaway tour bus carrying Chinese tourists crashed at the bottom Patong Hill little before 9pm, plunging the area into darkness.

The Phuket News saw at least four ambulances dispatched to the scene.

Police have confirmed that at least 17 tourists* have been rushed to hospital for treatment of injuries, though no description of how serious the injuries were was not given.

The bus stopped after slamming into a power pole in the sidestreet beside Patong temple. The concrete power pole was broken into two by the force of the impact.

Good to see that ban on buses going that route is working. If I take a wild guess here, I 'd say brake failure will be claimed after the driver rode the brakes the whole way down.

5555! The bus turned himself in to police later claiming fear of crowd retaliation at the scene caused him to run away.

I know that left hand turn, there's a nice cheap BBQ place across from the smashed Temple. I bet the Chinese tourist wanted a CHEAP place to eat but too bad the brakes failed again.
