Video: Hunt on for foreigner on big bike who hit three year old in buggy

CHIANG MAI: -- Police in Chiang Mai are looking for a middle aged foreigner on a big bike who fled the scene of an accident after a three year old child was seriously injured.

 

The child and her parents are Spanish. They were crossing the road in the area of the Jeng Sri Phoom.

 

The child is currently in intensive care. She has a broken leg and swelling of the brain.

 

The footage is grainy but shows traffic slowing as the parents push their child across the road. The motorcyclist comes up on the outside and the child is ejected from the buggy onto the tarmac.

 

The motorcyclist stops to see what he has done but Channel 3 TV News reported on Facebook that he then left the scene as the child was being taken to hospital.

 

Police said he was a foreigner aged about 40-55. He was wearing a white shirt and has short hair. It was a "big bike" with a carrying case on the rear.

 

Comments on the video from Thai people varied; some suggested that it was not an appropriate place to be crossing with a child in a buggy.

 

While others said that the motorcyclist must be found to take responsibility for what had happened.

hard way why he should take responsibility for his actions.

This is really sick. I cannot understand how anyone with the slightest morals could see an infant thrown from a pram into the street and ride away.

I hope the kid recovers quickly, and the piece of twisted lowlife scum that did it gets exactly what he deserves.

It is really saddening that not a day goes by without accident reports involving kids on the roads.

Yep me as well, saw the CCTV on Ch3 this morning. To be honest with you, there is no way I would push a pram with a young kid in it in front of me into live traffic. That kid would be in my arms.

Let's hope for a full recovery!!!!!!

Ps the father sounded British.

The report says he rode away after the child was being taken to hospital, not waiting the ambulance would be an example of having low morals, but not waiting for the police?

He didnt appear to be speeding to me, I think the pram appearing in front of him was probably as big a shock to him. While I dont condone his actions,

I think the parents should shoulder the majority of the blame here.

Come on , he was driving with traffic. The parents are looney for pushing the pram  into traffic like that. They need to take responsibility for being morons.

200% the parents fault, and the motorcycle driver and the baby are innocent victims of moronic parents running right into traffic.

 

if that motorcyclists suffers any sort of punishment at all, it will be an outrageous shame.... the parents should be punished, but having their child injured by their own idiocy is probably punishment enough.

incorrect.. regardless of his speed, the parents pushed stroller into traffic, especially on that outside area where a motorcyclist will have NO line of site to the idiots running into traffic (his eyes blocked by the car)... in the video it does not even look like he is exceeding the speed limit anyway, but even at a reduced speed he would still hit them.

 

this is absolutely the fault of the parents.... they entered traffic in an unsafe manner and unfortunately their baby paid the price for their idiocy... to suggest otherwise is simply foolish.

Thailand is definitely not a safe place to tourists.  The general traffic rules do not apply and there should be large signs at the departure gates in the airports "Welcome to paradise, good luck."

 

I'm not sure if there is a pedestrian crossing, the video looked too grainy to tell, but from CH3 this morning the couple said they were crossing a pedestrian crossing.  If so, the "big bike" is in trouble.

 

If there was no pedestrian crossing, then I don't understand why the "big bike" left the scene, such an a-hole.  If there was no pedestrian crossing, I don't think he did anything wrong and in fact the blame can be put to the parents.

 

I once crossed a street with a pram with my wife... my wife was in front while I pushed the pram... I knew motorcycles just wouldn't give a rats ass about anything.

I watched the video a few times, not easy to tell if there was a pedestrian crossing or not but we all know pedestrian ( zebra) crossings here mean nothing.
The one thing I would say is that the family set off out into the oncoming traffic at quite a pace, probably frustrated at having to wait some time, and not giving the bike time to stop.

Obviously the fact that the motorcycle rider left the scene before the police arrived was wrong also !

Pedestrian crossings are very dangerous in thailand. 

I once stopped to let pedestrians walk, because pedestrians have right of way on unmonitored pedestrian crossings.

Problem is that the bikes behind me was not prepared and started breaking in panic and hit eachother. 

Pedestrians didnt even cross...

So now i always keep going even though pedestrians are waiting to cross.. Unless i know for sure that no nobody is behind me.

 

Somebody should push empty strollers out into pedestrian crossings and film it to raise awareness.

I don't really get this. On the video I can see the rider stops and goes to check what happened. After this, the video is cut and continues showing the guy leaving, once the road seems to be clear already. Am I missing something?
