Maj Teerasak said, “The driver has been charged with reckless driving causing injury. The bus has full insurance coverage and the company is taking care of all expenses including damages caused to the property.”

Maj Teerasak also confirmed that the motorbike driver and his passenger who were injured as a result of the crash, 33-year-old Nattachai Chanmala and 22-year-old Ms Ratchanok Masjula, are still in hospitals recovering from their injury.

its a sad state of affairs when bus crashes are so common in phuket that readers dont bother commenting on them. phuketians still believe " build it and they will come ". so many tourists die annualy from buses, boats, jetskis, etc etc and with the combination of rip offs, dirty beaches, assaults, bad service, bars closed for erections etc etc, its a wonder anyone comes at all. once the chinese stop coming its game over ladies. stop fighting over the tourist dollar, unite, step up your game and step into the 21st century. throw away all your preconceived thai ideals and offer what the rest of the world offers, honest, quality sustainable tourism in line with what the 21st century tourist wants. 
unfortunately the uneducated unexperienced thai cronies think they know everything about what tourists want and the minions are not allowed to speak for fear of retribution up under thai culture.phuket was a gold mine but now its so cluttered with corruption and so over priced for the quality of service it offers that many are going elsewhere.
