PETCHABURI: -- Three people, including the daughter of the Australian ambassador to Thailand, were injured when a car in which they were travelling accidentally lost control and crashed into a power pole on Petkasem highway in Petchaburi province on Thursday.

Two of the injured were identified as Ms Christeen Rubelliard, daughter of Australian ambassador Paul Rubelliard, and her driver, Mr Adul Artharn. The third victim was not identified.

The trio were travelling in a Mitsubishi Grandis on their way back to Bangkok from Hua Hin. As the car was approaching Ban Khao Tamone in Ban Lat district of Petchaburi, Mr Adul told police that he lost control of the car for unknown reason and the car climbed on the road island and crashed into a power pole and overturned.

All the three injured were taken to Muang district’s hospital for medical treatment.

Narrowly avoided disaster due to 'unknown reason' you'd think that the embassy will employ drivers

with good driving skills to avoid such situations with high profile personal, you'd think, but not necessarily

implemented.....

Surely you don't believe this story in its entirety? The embassy more than likely made some changes to protect the ambassador's name.

Imagine you were driving and could you honestly say "for no reason I lost control"?

Unknown reason makes it sound even fishier.

In the land of lies and corruption, it would take a nano second to come up with a "feasible" reason.

Bus and minibus drivers have a plethora of excuses at their disposal, all gobbled up by the police without question.

not sure how old she is but sounds like international school kids/university coming back from a party break in hua hin.

I certainly made that drive back from friends condos there on a number of occasions.

How can you loose control without having any idea what happened? Did the steeringwheel come loose or so? Did they loose a tire?

What was the speed they were driving?

Well as it was for an unknown reason then it had to be one of those weird Karmic things that just come along, no one to blame.

Ah Yes, Its the ole unknown reason of a driver loosing control of his car. To do this damage it had to be an excess of speed combined with a detraction of the driver ( texting?,partying?,drinking?)..Of course here in LOS it could be a ghost car.

"The embassy more than likely made some changes to protect the ambassador's name."

Well, his name, as reported by our reliable friends at PBS is Paul Rubelliard. His real name is Paul Robilliard.

Perhaps that is what you were referring to? As reported, the driver Mr Adul Artharn lost control.

Let's hope the young lady and the other two make a quick recovery.

speed, mobile phone, talking, spilling hot coffee, mechanical all possibilities, (steering wheel coming loose so unlikely, its not worth talking about, its just as likely to be an alien, crossing the road)
