Capt Sunan Petchnoo of the Thalang Police was called to the accident, at a bend near the Tha Ruea shrine on Thepkrasattri Rd northbound, at 6am.

Police arrived at the scene to find a Toyota Vios with its front end demolished by the impact. About 100 metres away was 62-year-old Sommart Longrak was standing next to his Isuzu pickup truck with a damaged rear end.

Mr Sommart told police that he and his nephew were heading home in Pa Khlok when a Toyota Vios slammed into the back of his pickup at high speed.

“My nephew suffered an injury to his back. Kusoldharm rescue workers have already taken him to Thalang Hospital,” said Mr Sommart told police when they arrived.

Mr Sommart said that the driver of the Vios was a foreign woman.

“She got out of the car after the crash, but as we speak different languages, we could not understand each other – I think she is Russian,” Mr Sommart said.

“She then hitched a ride with a passing vehicle and left her car behind,” he said.

“Officers have seized the Toyota and had it towed to Thalang Police station while we try to track down the vehicle’s registered owner and locate the foreign woman who was driving the vehicle at the time of accident,” said Capt Sunan.

Mr Sommart and the Caucasian lady could not communicate due to language problems.
Not sure the lady is from Russia, it can be ( until now) any other east European country. Right, Samantha?
Mr Sommart believed/thought/assumed to much.  :-)

Was the car of the lady rented?

Let us wait and see what is the outcome. ( if there will be any outcome)
