Police in Suphanburi, central Thailand, know the identity of a man who hit and killed an 87 year old man outside an Agricultural Cooperatives center on Route 340.

 

The corpse of Sawang Rerai was dragged 300 meters before the driver fled the scene in the direction of Ang Thong. 

 

He then hit a mum and dad and their child on a motorcycle at the Sam Ko intersection breaking the father's leg and both the mother's legs.

 

They are in hospital. 

 

The owner of the souped up pick-up Panuwat Wongsuwan, 20, turned up at Si Prachan police station with his mother Sujira to profess his innocence. 

 

He said he had lent his vehicle to his stepfather Chao Bunseng, 50, who was going to see his mother on mother's day. 

 

Sujira, 53, urged her husband to give himself up, it would be better for him.

 

Both mother and son expressed sympathy for the victims and their families.

 

Si Prachan police captain Kornwit Meedee said that witnesses had been interviewed and confirmed it was Chao.

 

If he doesn't surrender a summons and arrest warrant will be issued for negligent driving causing death.

 

Sujira said she did not know if her husband was drunk, reported Thai Rath yesterday.

Why can't they just issue a summons and arrest warrant anyway? Why wait for him 'not to surrender' and how long will they wait? 15 years?

It's a bit like saying to someone, "If I don't call, everything's ok." which is pretty stupid, as losing your phone, dying or being in an accident would stop you from calling! 🙄😏

Why wasn't a police officer despatched to the registered address of the car immediately? Arrest the owner on suspicion then investigate. Something very weird about this.

Why not go out and arrest him - that summons will be sent on the post probably twice before they get off their proverbials they go after him. Total incompetence

Get a warrant and find the ba$tard... a nationwide man-hunt is done for a foreign spear fisherman how about one for a murderer?
