Ayutthaya – A French tourist on a bicycle was tragically killed after being directly hit by a speeding car at an intersection in Ayutthaya on Wednesday evening, May 25th.

 

Ayutthaya provincial police, along with rescue officers and volunteers, rushed to the scene around 9:00 PM. after being alerted of the incident in which the foreign tourist was hit by a sedan and was seriously injured at the Khlong Makham Rieng intersection in Mueng district.

Upon arrival, a wrecked rental bicycle was found lying on the road and a white sedan with a broken windshield was found nearby. The 26-year-old injured woman, identified as Camellia (last name withheld by TPN media), was found heavily bleeding with severe wounds and broken arms and legs. She was, unfortunately, pronounced dead shortly afterward.

 

A 42-year-old car driver, whose name was withheld by law enforcement and who was still in shock, told police that he was on the way home when he noticed a green light for going straight and a red light for turning right. He then drove straight at a high speed at the same time that two female foreign tourists were biking into the middle of the intersection. He couldn’t brake in time, so the car directly crashed into one of the bikers. He was sorry about the incident and stated he would like to apologize to the family of the deceased.

I was dumb enough to believe cars rode on only one side here.  Sidewalks not roads.  Lights on after dark.  Drunk driving bad.  Helmets good.  No u-turns.  Look first.  

 

LOS has proved me wrong.   Anything is possible

And finally back to the tragic stories of increasing foreigners and locals killed in avoidable road accidents. One of the few positive side effects of the global covid 19 neurosis has been to put this to rest for a while. RIP young Camille.

There you have it, since when has it been allowed to speed at a junction? in any civilised country he would have been arrested on the spot, why is there no mention of the type of car other than a white sedan maybe he is also a Hi-So

Mercedes Benz comes to mind travelling at 120kph.

Just guessing.

PM good morning!  

 

As you can see from the article your request yesterday in regards to accidents and death past 20 years for " cooperation " hasn't worked,  will never work without 

EDUCATION THEN ENFORCEMENT

If you have any doubts disguise yourself rid your body guards take a walk try one of those crosswalk like the lady doctor inner city designation speed 80, no enforcement like the cop he's going 100 plus. then someone official from DLT,  see fit to place a crosswalk right in the middle of a racetrack. Let see how long you last? 😂

Driving at high speed across a zebra crossing, amazing Thailand.

 

Have you heard about Prayut's latest initiative? for Thailand to have zero road deaths by 2050 !!

Gawking, taking photos, video clips of accident victims should be made a punishable offence. Very disturbing and disrespectful behavior.

I bet if there is video of the incident the only thing that will match his story is moving at high speed.

Her friend said they had mistaken the red turn right filter light for the main light so they assumed it was safe to cross and walked out into the road without bothering to check further..

So who's fault was it?

It's said he was going fast. Bad. the witness also said both green and red lights were showing ?? Oh and mr. Prayout still no pedestrian crossing signs to be seen when driving, just lots of faded white paint everywhere if only HE was to drive anywhere alone, without a cavalcade of cars, he may understand the problem on thai roads.
