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

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.

 

1. you dont need to understand the traffic rules of any country to know YOU DO NOT WALK OUT INTO MOVING TRAFFIC... that is a universal concept of self presrevation that seems to be lost on the idiots from the west that live such a sheltered life they have forgotten to have common sense.

it does NOT MATTER if there is a crosswalk there, not everyone stops, so do NOT run into traffic... this is a simple concept.. you wait until it is clear and you make sure you have ample time to cross

these people got impatient and just went.

 

2. he left the scene because you are highly unlikely to get any sort of fair trial here as a foreigner... if the media is pressuring the police to punish, they will do it regardless of whether you are wrong or not.

 

i watch tourists every single day here walk into traffic, without even looking... or even worse, they are looking the WRONG direction on a ONE WAY street... its absolutely ridiculous... my friend got his bike destroyed due to an idiot like this running into traffic in front of him and causing an accident... i narrowly avoided him but he continued to run into traffic and was hit... and he had the nerve to insist my friend pay for his medical bills... no one wants to take responsiblity for their actions, just punish someone else.

 

the parents are at fault, and the motorcyclist should be reimbursed for damage to his bike.

Wow that is so the parents fault pushing the pram into traffic first. They were not at a crosswalk either even though there is one only a few meters away(not that they are really safer but some drivers actually look for pedestrians there). Honestly no driver would expect that especially knowing Thailand horrific driving.

Though I agree that the parents should shoulder the blame as that is completely the wrong time/place to cross the road with traffic that wasn't stationary, the motorcyclist is also at fault.

 

Even though most motorcyclists use all the lanes, legally it's only the left lane that they're supposed to use. Maybe a technicality as the accident could have still occurred, but the law's the law, even if most people get away with it 99.99% of the time in LoS

The parents are to blame on this one. Who pushes their kid into moving traffic? 

 

Not restrained in the buggy with no seat belt on too.

In this case I think the rider was going into the ramp to turn right.

Looked at the video...  All I see is people jaywalking in the traffic,pushing a stroller (stupid), then hit by a motorcycle who then stopped after the collision.  I see nothing else...

Looking at that I wouldn't even give a thought to crossing the road there. But pushing a pram in front of yourself into that traffic is just criminal neglect. As for the bike rider. Well it looks like he was blindsided  by what looks like a tuk-tuk which seems to have just missed them. The bike rider does stop and go back not sure why he took off. Again that's just fkn madness trying to get across there.

IMHO the police are looking for him so they can get their share of the pay out nothing more. At least the guy stopped if he would have stayed he would have been extorted and jailed for something that is clearly not his fault this is Thailand we all know there is no justice here especially when it involves foreigners.

Those insane parents acted totally irresponsible.

 

But what is this?

So we see the rider getting off, who then waited for the ambulance to take the child and only then rode away. Sounds like he did the right thing.

 

IMO that is not fleeing the scene.

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.

Oh get off your high horse and read the story.

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.

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.

Sent from my SM-G920F using Thaivisa Connect mobile app

 

My better half was talking about this at lunchtime. She said the father is British, the mother Spanish and they are here on holiday, regular holidaymakers.

 

No idea on the rider.

You are asking way too much from the some TV'ers.

 

Mostly they don't even read the whole headline before fingers hit the keyboard.

The parent with the stroller made a very poor decision in crossing and caused the accident.

The parents clearly at fault, pushing their defenceless kid in front of speeding traffic, brainless idiots. I'll bet there was a pedestrian bridge nearby which they were too lazy to use.
