The driver, 26-year-old Inthonkorn Janrasklang, said the bus’ brakes failed as he approached the Intersection near the Khok Kloi Bus Station at about 2pm.

Mr Inthonkorn said he swerved off the road to avoid ploughing into traffic waiting at the traffic lights.

Mr Inthonkorn explained to Takua Thung Police Inspector Lt Thavorn Thongkam that the bus was carrying 42 passengers from Khao Lak to Phuket.

@ Jome:  Yes, Jome, I agree with you, and realized myself already that probably less than 10% of the accidents make headlines.
And yes, I comment on a few of that 10%, accidents by photo's showing the damage and/or flipping over, even diving into the 'deeps' beside the thai roads prove that thai drivers just lost control due to not adjusted speed at accident locations.
That is why I wrote my question:.." Are there still competent thai bus drivers, or were/are save arriving busses just under de 'good stars' ?" ...

But Jome, you used the word 'problem' for that less 10% of the accidents make head lines. That is not a 'problem'.
Actually the real problem is the unsafe driving of busses.

There is no accident report without Kurts comment....The problem is however that probably less than 10 % of the accidents make headlines....

Thai bus accident after bus accident.
And all busses have brake failures.
Good reason not to travel with thai busses!

If it are not brake failures ( just thai lies) than asking:
Are there still competent thai bus drivers, or were the safe arriving busses just under the 'good stars'?
