Man wrecks pickup at slippery 'deadly curve', left foot severed from ankle

PHUKET: Doctors have yet to confirm whether or not they will be able to salvage a man's left foot, which was severed from his ankle in a freak accident this morning along Thepkrasatri Rd north of Phuket Town.

Police and rescue workers were notified of the accident at about 9 a.m. this morning and reported to the scene, at a roadside ditch along the infamous Kuan Din Daeng curve, a few kilometers north of Super Cheap.

There, rolled over on its side in the ditch off the southbound lane was a totaled bronze-colored pickup truck with Bangkok license plates. Inside the cab of the truck there was a man screaming frantically that his foot had been cut off. Rescue workers quickly assessed the situation, noting that a steel guardrail from the road had penetrated the inside of vehicle causing the man's left foot to be severed from his ankle.

Rescue workers quickly collected the man's severed foot, which was caught in the seat, and had it rushed to the hospital morgue freezer in hopes of preventing any further cell decay. They then proceeded to free the man from the truck, who was said to be conscious and alert, though rapidly turning green in the face from loss of blood.

Unit - 27

The man was named as 41-year-old Kayan Lahab of Nakhon Si Thammarat. Witnesses told investigators that at the time the man lost control of his vehicle at the curve, it was raining hard, with lots of runoff coming from off the adjacent Hill onto the road. 

The particular curve is the site of many accidents, prompting locals to nickname the site "Kuan Din Daeng - 100 corpses curve".

At 'Kuan Din Daeng', yes one has to drive there very careful when it is raining.
The curve is not slippery. 
You can loose car control when you not adjust speed to circumstances. As simple is that.
As you have to drive everywhere in Thailand more slow and careful when it rains.

A steel guardrail penetrated his truck? Oh boy.
A expensive lesson in save driving.  
Lucky he did not involved other traffic in his driving accident.
