A major pile-up on the Kanchanaphisek or Bangkok ring-road last night was a scene of utter devastation. 

 

Around 8.30pm four cars and three pick-ups were shown strewn on both sides of the highway in Muang Samut Prakan. 

 

It occured at KM marker 5 on the Bang Plee to Suksawat section and caused holdups in the direction of Bang Na and Rama 2. 

 

An injured man on the scene said that he had stopped after colliding with a taxi and they were waiting for several minutes on the hard shoulder when other vehicles plowed into them.

Six people were taken to hospital.

 

A 77kaoded video showed steaming and half overturned vehicles, injured people and debris all over the road as rescue services did their first aid work.

What you can guess:

No hazard flasher on? No other warning lights?

(warning triangle unknown in this country)

Waiting on the tarmac?

Recipe for disaster particularly in the night and along a high speed road.

Passenger compartment of that taxi held up well.

The narrative says that the initial accident was a 'collision with a taxi'. It would appear that it was initially a relatively minor shunt that went horribly wrong.

 

The position of the taxi suggests that it had stopped in the right hand 'hard shoulder'. That's not a very smart place to stop, although it may have been immobilized.

The hard shoulder....that's jus another lane....a very dangerous place to stop....if you must, then never get out of the vehicle!

They just can't drive!

One reason I avoid driving on larger roads at night. More crazies and drunks than daytime. 

Actually any and all roads in Thailand are "high speed" roads, designated so or not.

The triangle wouldn't stay long before being “borrowed”

They really are not ready for technology at this level.

Our "hosts" should stick to non-mechanical transport.

The death and destruction they cause is unthinkable to Western standards.

And what do you think when they get more EV's?
