Chalong Police were called to respond to an accident on Chao Fa East Rd near Land & Houses Park Phuket at around noon.

At the scene, officers found a Mitsubishi Pajero lying on its side next to a downed street light pole.

The driver of the car, 24-year-old Choukwan Pattanakitviboon, told police that she was heading towards Phuket Town when a dog suddenly ran in front of her car.

The woman swerved to avoid hitting the dog, but lost control of her vehicle, which slammed into a streetlamp and flipped onto its side.

The dog escaped unhurt, while Ms Choukwan suffered a minor injury to her a arm.

Police have yet to confirm whether or not she will face any charges for the accident.

Statement:  Thai flipping cars always drove to fast. Period.
Regardless or the driver has a driving license or not.

Yup, Foot and marcher:
Whole of Phuket is actually a big city, you can not drive highway speed. repeating Road signs are telling you that on Phuket.
"police consideration" means you go to police station, pay a administrative fee, and walk out uncharged.( for thai only)

For foreigners it is, you commit a traffic crime and will be charged at the spot. 
Like in other countries, so you not suffer culture shock. Very polite.

Why is it that every time anyone has an accident we get "the police are considering charges".  Why don't they do something useful like catching criminals

Assuming there actually was a dog she swerved to avoid, she never would have flipped if she wasn't speeding in the first place.
