Last night, a wild deer unexpectedly appeared on Chaiyapruek Road, leading to a series of unfortunate accidents. Police from Chaiyapruek Police Station swiftly reached the scene after reports surfaced about a deer being hit by several cars.

 

At the crash site on Chaiyapruek Road, near a convenience store in front of Bang Phlap Subdistrict Municipality, officers discovered a female deer lying lifeless by the roadside. Nearby were two damaged pickup trucks, highlighting the chaos caused by the deer's sudden intrusion.

 

One vehicle, a white Isuzu with the registration plate 1ขต 5951 Bangkok, had its left front side significantly damaged. The other, a white Toyota Revo with the registration 3 ฒค 6001 Bangkok, had a crushed front bumper stained with blood.

 

Dashcam footage from the damaged Isuzu pickup revealed the deer darting out from an alley beside the convenience store before being struck by the vehicle. It was thrown to the roadside, lay motionless for about 10 minutes, and then attempted to cross again, only to be hit by the refrigerated Toyota pickup.

 

Kanya, the 50-year-old driver of the refrigerated pickup, recounted that she was driving down the bridge when the deer suddenly appeared, causing her to panic. She noted that the deer had already been struck by another vehicle before she collided with it.

 

Witnesses like 59-year-old Lai mentioned the deer had emerged from behind the market and tried to cross the road. It was hit, got up, tried to cross again, and was hit once more. The deer made another attempt, leading to a third fatal collision.

 

Local residents speculated that the deer likely belonged to a house about 1 kilometre away. Police contacted someone claiming to be the caretaker, who confirmed the deer belonged to an employer currently abroad. The deer had escaped around 4pm, despite efforts to locate it and offer a reward.

 

Police are now coordinating with the Department of National Parks, Wildlife, and Plant Conservation to verify the legality of the deer's possession, as it is protected under the Wildlife Preservation and Protection Act of 1992. Possession without permission can result in up to four years in prison, a fine up to 40,000 baht (US$1,100), or both.

"The deer made another attempt, leading to a third fatal collision."

 

Pretty sure the Police will rule this one a suicide.

If that had happened Locally near me it would have been loaded up, cut up and sold.

Idiotic, incompetent, pathetic driving. Most people on here and elsewhere couldn't care less for the deer but, personally, I am sad it should die in this way. Must have been terrifying. RIP.

The family of the deer should claim compensation.

Seriously, this is very sad.

 

The family of the deer should compensate for the mayhem that the critter caused.

Your statement sucks. What I said was they should keep their "pets" so they are safe, not running around like soi  dogs.
