CCTV footage showed the dramatic moment that a six wheel container truck was propelled onto its side after a collision outside a gas station in Chonburi 
 
The driver of the truck that plowed into the container truck - Ekkarat, 21 - had to be cut out of his cab after his legs were jammed into the console. He was taken to the Phan Thong hospital in a serious condition.
 
Kewat, 28, explained that he had just filled up at the PTT and was crossing the road at the u-turn accompanied by other vehicles.
 
The accident happened on the Phan Thong to Ban Kao road in Ban Kao sub-district.

Speeding along through a town with how many tonnes of concrete pillars in the trailer? 

Did not appear to be speeding from that video, more to do with the clown pulling out in false hope!!

He was going too fast for the load he was carrying, hence the lack of ability to brake in time.

He was already pulled out and stationary.

Having watched the video a couple of times IMHO the fault lies with the truck lying on its side. The driver should have stayed at the junction until the road was clear from traffic crossing in front of him as they have the right of way.

 

No matter how fast you believe he was travelling, nor what load he was carrying, HE had the right of way.

Exactly how fast was the truck travelling? Do you KNOW for certain?

 

The guy pulling cross the road should not have crossed and then stopped blocking the highway, thus setting the scene for the collision.

Obviously the truck pulled out  when it should have waited, but why did the other truck keep on  moving forward....  i counted 5 /6 seconds, surely enough time for him to brake to avoid the collision..maybe too busy sending  sms like many i see

Yes, blocking the whole road.... he had pulled in front of the smaller vehicle when he should have given way. Forcing another person on the main road to brake and stop is not the way I was taught to drive.

Then again maybe he wasn't busy sending sms but was driving perfectly safe on a road where HE had the priority and the right of way.

Just another day of poor judgement. The pickup is wrong but luckily escaped.

Look at the photo. The pickup had nothing to do with it. The big truck blocked the road. The other truck had no chance anymore to stop.

The pickup driver was Lucknow impatience got him.out of a bad situation.

 

The lorry pulling out bullied his way into the road.

 

I saw the other day a 6 wheeler they use for soil transport edging his way from a side road into the main carriageway on the opposite side of the road at a U turn. The driver couldn't see anything out of the passenger window due to the angle he was at, but he wasn't going to stop until he had forced his way into the road.The

 

We were taught, never use the size of your vehicle to intimidate other road users. We were taught, but when you are driving a loaded tank transporter, no one will argue....

How do you know when it might have been applied......? 

Reality is, here the reactions seem dulled.

The only time the truck pulling out was stationary was when it was on its side

A common maneuver from Thai drivers is to pullout into oncoming traffic who have the right of way to make a right hand turn as they lack discipline to wait for a safe gap in the traffic . Even more dangerously  they do not get onto the left side of the road while performing this maneuver , they filter into there lane causing more danger for oncoming traffic from there right hand side .
