The way I read the story the headline should be:

 

"Israeli honeymooner, 25, killed by unknown passing vehicle"

 

Provided the reporting is correct, there clearly was no "car crash".

Pai 35 km from Myanmar border (linear distance).

Jerusalem about 50 km from the Mediterranean.

 

Another very sad story.

As you see you can be killed just standing on the side of a road.

Blind, careless drivers everywhere.

Pai's walking street is the only one I've seen where cars, busses, pickups, songtaews and motorbikes still drive up and down the street when everything is in full swing and jam packed with people. It's a joke of a place for that.

Those  new driving licence  rules and speed  cameras  will stop all of this, clearly speed and no licence was the cause, sheer inattention had nothing to do with it, not that any Thais want new  rules or even old ones or any enforcement after all its "not fair".

Fair costs money and means responsibility, who wants that?

Just being near a road can get you killed here with alarming regularity RIP?

Not so it only happens once, if only they had picked the Gaza Strip
