PHUKET: -- Yet another 'drowsy' driver and his two passengers were injured yesterday morning when their vehicle overturned near a Koh Kaew gas station.

“We found an upside down Honda CRV stuck to a power pole near the PTT station on Thepkrasattri Road. All three occupants were trapped inside the car and rescue workers had to use Jaws of Life to cut them loose,” said Capt Udom Petcharat of Phuket City Police.

After the SUV was lifted from the footpath, police discovered a flattened saleng (motorbike with a sidecar) that had been parked at the spot.

“The 37-year-old driver, Prawit Prakanpai, was driving back from a staff party with two friends. Since the incident took place at about 1am, we believe he might have fallen asleep at the wheel.”


Yes, it was probably the lateness of the hour that caused him to fall asleep and crash into the service station.

No need to test for booze, the staff party was probably teetotal and the driver wouldn't be drinking anyway.
