Road rage: Belgian man knocked down by Thai Benz driver half his age

RAYONG: -- In the latest road rage incident a Belgian pensioner has been knocked to the ground by the young driver of a Benz in broad daylight on Wednesday morning.

 

The assault was caught on video and appeared on Thai national news. It followed a minor overtaking incident between the drivers of both cars.

 

Roland Hattercant, 68, was left requiring hospital treatment after being attacked by a man aged about 30 who fled the scene, reports tnamcot.

 

But now it has emerged that the Thai driver reported the incident to police before his Belgian adversary got there to do the same.

 

Mr Hattercant's Thai wife Atcharawadee, 38, told reporters that they were in the area to take their daughter to St Joseph school. 

 

They were approaching the intersection on Sukhumvit Road near the Kameo Hotel.

 

According to Atcharawadee her husband overtook a Benz then the driver of the Benz undercut her husband in order to get past. 

 

He seemed cross at being overtaken, she said. They were both stopped at the lights.

 

Her husband got out of his car to find out what was going on and that is when he was hit to the ground. There were many people stopped at the lights, she said.

 

The assailant simply left. She said her husband had been attacked without warning.

 

The couple managed to take their daughter to school before going to Rayong Hospital.

 

They then reported the matter to Rayong police but were told that the other man had already reported the incident.

 

The TNA report gave no comment from the police.

Well if the other man who assaulted him has reported it first, it's gotta be the old fella'a fault. Law 101. 

 

Gotta love the childish logic and mentality of some.

"Her husband got out of his car to find out what was going on and that is when he was hit to the ground. "

That was his first big mistake. No need to get out of the car if there was no contact between vehicles.

I really wonder too why he got out.. seems he wanted to vent his anger or something. Does not mean he deserved to be beaten though its not a smart move at all.

One of the first things I learnt here was a bit like the guy in 'Apocalypse Now': "Never leave the boat, pant pant" being chased by a tiger.

Happened when a guy motorcyed out in front of me and fell over without touching anything. My wife made me wait in the car until he got up and left.

Feel sorry for the guy, but don't get out of your car for a minor dispute.  Keep the door locked and the window rolled up.  Good thing he didn't do this in LA, where he probably would have been shot.

Do not really know what has happened, but it is clear that "fixing the case with fist " has growing popularity in the circle of more valuable car owners.

I feel sorry for the guy especially as he was a lot smaller and clearly didn't want a fight. It is a first for me though actually seeing a Thai on a 'one on one situation'. Hopefully Karma will reward him with someone more his size and age next time and give him some of his own medicine, 10 fold.
