PATTAYA: -- An online appeal has been launched to help two Russian children who were involved in a motorcycle accident on Sukhumvit Road. Pattaya, last Thursday.

 

Both Daniel Mokshantsev,16 and his sister Katia,14 are in comas.

 

Their motorcycle was hit by a tour bus carrying Chinese tourists back to the resort from Nong Nooch gardens. The bus driven by 56 year old Rot Bothaisong is believed to have gone through a red light, MTODAY reported.

 

The children - who were wearing helmets and licensed - were coming out of Soi Huay Yai.

 

The appeal says that their father is bringing them up alone and massive bills are expected at the hospital where they are being treated.

 

It states that the children have "closed craniocerebral injuries and brain hemorrages with extensive bruising".

 

Following the accident many Thai people drew praise for helping the victims at the scene of the accdent before they were taken to Wat Yansangwaram Hospital.

 

Account details in Russia and Thailand have been announced for donations.

Can you share that video?  I live just down the street from that light and see these tour buses passing on the left, in the shoulder.  Running red lights (I've seen 2 do this in the past few days only).  Try going past Nong Nooch Gardens around 5PM.  They just go right into the road.  I've seen some really nasty accidents there.  All it would take is a light.

 

Right there at Huay Yai is a police box.  They do nothing but collect fines from scooters from time to time.  Worthless.

I won't ride my scooter on Suk around here.  Too many accidents.  Too many vehicles going at very high speed.  Too crazy.

 

I wish the best for these poor kids.  One big reason, as you say, to not ride a scooter here on roads like this.  Just too dangerous.

Surely the tour bus has insurance. By all reports, he jumped a red light, so fault would seem to be clear.

Why shoud the father get slapped with the bill? That IS what insurance is for, right?

My heart goes out to him and I hope the kids both make a full recovery.

I also hope the driver gets the book thrown at him.

I shall be going to the bank to donate, as this is worthy, even though it should not be necessary.

From this photo it  it first looked to me like the bus (traveling north ) ( the report says coming from Nong Nooch so heading north )

had taken the filter lane to turn left at the temple (notice Saisawan sign in background )

if it had jumped the red light I don't see how he could make it across sukhumvit  all the way to the other side before hitting the kids.

Then I though he could have been going south and turned right against the northbund Sukhumvit traffic that may explain the tail end of the bus being over the center dividing line.  

 

But in any case I hope the kids recover, there are CCTV cameras at the junction  which should show who is is to blame and their insurance should be paying out.

I think I do know the area..but even if I don't why cant you tell me if the bus crossed  both north/southbound carriageways  ie: coming from the east side of the junction   or did he turn left  ie: coming from the south  or  right meaning he came from the north.

 

ohh ok maybe YOU don't know the area...

<Deleted!> <deleted>.  He should be put in jail.  He was headed north and ran the light at Huay Yai.  Way late.  And way fast.  The scooter was going across the road headed to the beach and was absolutely creamed by the bus.  Amazing they are still alive. 

 

It's in the video here:

I'm sickened....
