First thing that comes to mind if they checked the alcohol level in the blood.

And this is newsworthy why?  Hundreds of accidents weekly and some idiot somewhere hits a tree and suddenly it's top story.  Sheesh!

Maybe they ran out of power poles. Or just maybe she was avoiding a power pole that crossed her path.

Just on a serious note - One would think that the number of traffic deaths caused by collisions with trees, poles, and other street furniture might lead the road planners to consider removing such obstacles from the roadsides and central reservations.

People are killed running into trees every week in Australia. If they removed anymore we wouldn't have any left.

I was making a statement about the futility of removing trees to stop road accidents. It applies everywhere.

Or utilise them further as road calming measures.

Yep, agree....whenever they run off the road, those magnetic trees suck 'em up no worries every time.

Trouble is when you see 3 power poles and you can't figure out which is the real one.

So she was clearly intoxicated and Pattaya Plod are mulling 'if any charges would be filed over the accident.'  She must be a looker.

Sure, just assume the rider was at fault.

How do you know the tree wasn't drunk?

Anything is possible in the Kingdom.

It's not a top story:

 

It's in:

Thailand Local Forums

Pattaya

Pattaya News

 

It's a local story (about a local person who was taken to a local hospital) for local people.

 

" There's nothing for you here."

 

 

I receive the AN Daily News in the form of an email, which contains a section called "Latest News", about 20 topics. This is one of them. It doesn't show which forum or subforum until I click on it.

 

So yes, as far as I can tell, this is a top story.

Doing that would make absolutely no difference at all.

The average Thai driver will travel many meters to find something that they can have an accident with
