British Benz driver sought after fatal Chiang Mai smash

Recommended Posts

I bet when they find him, he will not be allowed to refuse breath test, or refuse to go to a police station.

He will get banged up straight away, no bail nothing.

He did wrong so should be punished.

Now we will see the 2 tier Thai system working.

Lets hope so, people need to learn not to flee from accidents, bail is something most people get if they have a good insurance. I got bail bond on mine. But I would not flee from an accident.

But strange your not condemning him for fleeing an accident most foreigners would do so if the guy was Thai. Are you are a Brit too by any chance and is that the reason why you don't think its bad that he runs from an accident ?

I don't care who someone is Thai Dutch, Brit.. whatever.. you just don't flee an accident.

Do you know WHY drivers flee the scene of an accident here?

because they can and there is little done about it

Say it how it is. He probably fled the scene because he was drunk and wanted to give himself time to sober up.

Will be appearing at a police station near you claiming that he was "in shock", especially now the papers have said it.

Flee or get beaten up by a mob.

I have seen it happen. The police stood on the opposite side of the road and did nothing.

CHIANG MAI: -- Chiang Mai police said they are looking for a British national whose passport was found in the badly damaged Mercedes-Benz that crashed into a pickup truck killing two Thai women before midnight Wednesday

Police arriving at the crash scene on Chiang Mai – Sansai road said they found only the passport book in the car.

It was not immediately known he was also injured and was admitted to hospital, or unhurt and fled the scene.

Sansai district police officer Pol Lt Col Pongsak Ruenkaew said police were alerted of the fatal crash at 11.30 pm and that two persons were killed.

At the scene, they found a pickup truck with Chiang Mai license plate lying upside down in the middle of the road.

Two women were dead by the overturned truck.

A white Mercedes-Benz car rested on the side of the road and a damaged third vehicle, a Pajero van parked nearby.

Police said driver of the van was identified and was admitted to Sansai district hospital.

Only the driver of the Mercedes-Benz was not located. Only a passport book of a British man was left in the car.

I wonder if the farang can just say "sorry" and join the monkhood so that all is forgotten and forgiven ...

That seems to work for the rich Thai Benz driver ....

He won’t be able to go very far without his passport so when he does turn up what kind of penalty is he likely to face?

Maybe because they might get lynched/killed by third-parties, friends, relatives etc....

I spent a few few years working in East Africa, where I did quite alot of driving. If I had been in a prang there, I would have been reluctant to hang around at the scene, maybe a drive to the nearest police station is safest? (When I worked in India, farang employees were strictly forebidden from driving at all).

I bet when they find him, he will not be allowed to refuse breath test, or refuse to go to a police station.
He will get banged up straight away, no bail nothing.

"Now we will see the 2 tier Thai system working. "

The two tiered system regarding comments following (apparent, alleged) criminal behavior is, as always, alive and well.

I am condemning him for fleeing, i stated he did wrong, in my book that is condemning him.

I don't know if anyone's already posted this thought up yet or not but, <deleted> how do we know that the named Brit was even driving the car at the time of the reported accident? Second perhaps the car was stolen and the driver perhaps wasn't the reported infamous "Brit."

I'm sorry, but that monkhood comes at a very high rate these days....its not just a salutation and off to Navarna you go...there's loads of Thai Baht involved in this submission to Buddhist teachings and concentration on monastic principles.

As for Thai bashing, most of what I read is pretty much general commentary regarding variations of cultures, ethics, morals and basic principles. Doing a "runner," as its commonly referred to as, is the most common principle held by Thai drivers involved in accidents it seems.

Regardless, the driver of the Benz, (whoever he/she) was, will no doubt turn up soon and face the music so to speak. Lets hope that the unfortunate two ladies who lost their lives to this accident will be remembered and honored by their families and friends. Sad day for both women and family for sure.
