Last night my wife showed me pics & a dashcam view of this. The redimix truck lost control (maybe woke up & over-corrected). Ended up jumping the median right into oncoming traffic. The carnage was unbelievable! These cars & pickups we're in don't offer much more protection than a beer can, especially when commercial trucks are involved. 

Very sad!

Pathetic road laws barely enforced by a pathetic police force combined with the little prince complex that so many thai men have making it impossible for them to see their limitations when driving. Oh and disregard for the safety of others and ignorance when it comes to risk.   Hardly a day goes by when im driving in Thailand that i dont feel like smashing someone in the face  because they've come close orphaning my son through bad driving.

That was a lot of passengers for that little car.

All the dead excluding the truck driver were in a mini bus, which is not shown here, just the Jazz with minimal damage.

And the carnage continues.

Life is so cheap in Thailand and nobody cares. Most trucks have below legal depth of tyre tread. Most trucks speed above legal limit with no police to stop them. On phuket they are more interested in stopping tourist for no helmit or licence

OK so the Jazz was just collateral damage.

 

The picture on the original post, as part of the report, failed to clarify this.
