Rawai, Phuket-In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a serious traffic incident occurred in Rawai, leading to a sequence of accidents that resulted in injuries and significant damage to public infrastructure.


At approximately 4:15 A.M., Chalong Police received reports of a collision on a curve in Rawai. Upon arrival, officers discovered a sedan that had collided with a power pole, causing it to fall and bring down electrical cables. The two occupants of the sedan sustained minor injuries.

 

In a related incident on the opposite lane, a minivan collided with an oil truck that had been obstructed by the fallen cables. This second collision led to three individuals in the minivan being injured and an oil spill from the damaged vehicle. All injured parties were promptly transported to a local hospital for treatment.

That would not have happened if the cables ( at least the ones crossing the street ) , would have been buried underground .

A constant cause of danger and accidents .

That would not have happened if the local culture would not require drivers to go faster than a normal individual would consider safe...

That road has got crazy, Im trying to think where exactly that is, expect the power to go off again sometime today, 

I think that's the empty hotel (was targeting Chinese) more or less opposite Vijit in the photo. But it happened Tuesday morning, will be ok again by now.
