CHIANG MAI:-- The man who hit a three year old girl on his big bike in Chiang Mai is a 52 year old Canadian professor travelling the world.

The accident was caught on CCTV and a hunt resulted in Markus Christopher Petri being interviewed by Chiang Mai police yesterday.

The little girl - Lola Ansari - remains in ICU with brain swelling and a broken leg.

She was being wheeled across the road near Jeng Sri Phoom by her English dad Mark Ansari, 56, and his Spanish wife Raquel Salvadar, 23.

Petri was overtaking a four wheel public vehicle. He said that the child was wheeled into his path and he could not avoid her.He fled the scene of the accident saying that he was in a state of shock.

Manager reported that the family of the little girl come to Thailand every February. Petri is a Canadian professor on a world tour. He had previously been to Bali and Burma and was on his way to China next.

He was apparently looking for work teaching English in Asia.

He has been charged with negligent riding causing serious injury and is set to go to court where his case will be heard.

Passing without due care and attention, but also wheeling a child "across the road" (not at intersection). Who is at fault? Both.

They are both at fault for the accident but you are a useless human being for leaving the scene without helping,

He was overtaking at an intersection, so he did make a mistake. But the parents pushed their kid out into traffic moving quickly because they could sense danger. 80% on the parents I'd say. But I am sure both parties are suffering from their actions.

have to agree. i wouldn't cross the road myself at that place with that traffic, pushing a child into the road without checking is stunningly negligent.

If you’re WALKING on the ROAD and get HIT by a VEHICLE.

 

Don't blame the vehicle.  Don't blame the road.  Don't blame your shoes.  Blame yourself. 

 

And to push a helpless bound child first as you walk out onto a busy traffic is so reckless and irresponsible. 

 

 

The diver should not have left the scene and should be charged with leaving the scene of an accident only.

 

Don’t pet crocodiles, don’t kiss poisons snakes and don’t walk on busy roads.

 

Sorry if its confusing!!!!

Hardly passing without due care and attention. What is one supposed to do when wanting to pass a Bath Bus in traffic? Wouldn' t it be safe to assume (like we have to do all the time) that no idiot is going to "jay walk" across a main road in heavy traffic. If we were to drive the way you are suggesting traffic could not move faster than 20 klm. an hour.

Must be a close connection between Thais and Canuck for him to leave the accident, bad for him, not usually done in Canada. Mother and father needed some insurance money to be xcossing as the did .

Not only Thais abscond after a traffic incident/crash it appears.

Maybe he read a few threads here and figured it was normal protocol in Thailand to split after a wreck. All the bus drivers seem to do it.

err... from the video it seems clear he didn't flee the scene, he left after looking after the injured.

 

the video also shows that the buggy with the baby in it was pushed forward fast across the road in a totally irresponsible manner, I think the buggy pusher is more to blame than the motorcycle driver.

Cant see how the rider was at fault in his riding but certainly at fault in leaving the scene, whilst the parents of the child were negligent..
