Capt Krasorn Boonprasop from Thalang Police was called investigate an accident on the northbound section of Thepkassattri Rd near the Toyota showroom at 4:30pm.

It was reported that three people had been injured when a car crashed into the back of a pick up truck causing the truck to cross the central reservation and collide with another two vehicles.

Police arrived at the scene with an EMS unit from Thalang Hospital and Kusoldharm rescue workers to find a Chevrolet pick up truck smashed into an Isuzu pick up truck in the middle of the road.

The driver of the Isuzu, Mr Wasuwat Saeloo, 62, had suffered leg injuries, while the Chevrolet driver, 30-year-old Mr Charit Saetan, had no visible injuries but complained of neck and back pain. A passenger in the Chevrolet, 56-year-old Ms Lampoon Saetan, was suffering severe chest injuries. All three were immediately taken Thalang Hospital.

Ms Saetan was later pronounce dead at the hospital.

The driver of a Toyota Vigo which was also involved in the accident, Prawat Suwandang, 36, told police, “A Toyota Altis was heading in the direction of Phuket Town when it crashed into the back of the Chevrolet, this caused the Chevrolet to lose control. It travelled over the central reservation and then collided with the Isuzu and my car.”

Capt Krasorn said that no charges have been filed yet as police are waiting to question the injured drivers who are still currently in hospital.

Richard Vickers, Despite all the talk by officials to  improve safety, which is just lip service to placate tourists-no, it will not ever change. All these deaths are accepted as this is a fatalist society, the belief being these victims have now moved onto their next life. If the death was painful or terrifying, well they deserved it for some misdeed. You simply cannot apply western standards of safety here, they do not apply.

Great!
Seen the photo's I would say: Speed is not your winner!
But many thai on Phuket not believe that.
But the damage of the cars prove otherwise.

Actually, not much news. This happens daily on Phuket.
You are driving careful and daily just lucky not to get hit by these idiots.

Question: Is Thalang hospital equipped for handling victims of such crash impacts?

And the carnage continues...and without serious law enforcement, it will continue. Thai officials continue blathering on about "getting tough" on road safety, but not one stinking thing is ever done. Their latest "big push" involves forcing idiots to buy a $3 helmet (good luck with that one).  Thailand needs to completely revamp their worthless and corrupt police force, as the absence of law enforcement allows Thais to drive like incompetent fools, with complete disregard for rules, laws and common sense, and everyone knows there are no consequences (the exception being horrific accidents, which of course "will not happen to me").  The only guarantee is that within a few more days, (may not that long), we will read about another terrible accident with serious injury or death. Will it ever change?
