Thai Rath reported that a souped up, low wheel base pick-up collided with a tree between the service road and the main Petchkasem Highway in Tha Yang district yesterday.

 

The Isuzu - with Bangkok plates - was completely crushed with its roof off and there were 30 meter skid marks on the road.

 

Dead in the passenger seat was 21 year old Suchada Udornphimai from Nakorn Pathom.

 

Taken to hospital with head trauma and other injuries was the driver Thawatchai Sae-khow, 23, also from Nakorn Pathom.

 

The accident occurred Wednesday evening on the section inbound heading to Bangkok.

 

No other vehicles were apparently involved.

What's that?

They're referring to lowered suspension, low-profile tires usually accompanied by a 'chipped' ECU that marginally boosts engine power and greatly increases black exhaust smoke. These pimped pickups and their yokel drivers are the local equivalent of the ubiquitous Vauxhall Corsa favored by Chavs back in the UK.

Actually, high-speed, wet roads and Somchai = recipe for disaster.

There is actually a far simpler recipe = Take 1 Somchai......That's it.....?

Black smoke, loads of little dials on the dashboard, homer simpson and various other stickers, wheels that stick out wider than the body, and a **** that doesn't know how to drive......see it all the time here. The carnage continues...

RIP

I wonder why Thai reporters always blame the car for the accidents? Shouldn't the above really say "Thawatchai Sae-khow, 23, from Nakorn Pathom suffered head trauma and other injuries when he crashed his souped up pickup into a tree."?

Those pesky trees. They just jump out from nowhere. 

Did he honk for the tree to get out of his way? I bet that the tree didn't know how important the driver was.and he found out that they don't move over much /

Not to be disrespectful....but if they are going to drive like a bunch of a--holes, better that it end this way as opposed to them smashing into my family, for instance....

Hear Hear.

I see 2 Young Folks Dead.Nothing more.

Thats exactly why nothing changes . People only see what they want to see rather than seeing things that are dangerous and making improvements to prevent future dangerous acts. Blind to reality will not stop more deaths.  Doing nothing will not stop more deaths.

It comes from Education, not Control Freaks. Unfortunately some young are slow learners.
