At 1:45am today (Mar 16), Lt Sirinate Thairach of the Wichit Police was informed of an accident on Sakdidet Rd in Wichit where it was reported a minivan had been involved in a collision with a rubbish truck.

Police arrived at the scene with rescue workers to find three injured Burmese rubbish collectors lying in the road. Two of the men had sustained serious injuries to their legs.

Lt Sirinate said, “Two of the men, Mr Aou aged between 21-25 and Mr Nai age between 21-25 suffered severe broken legs and were taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

“A doctor from the hospital has since told us that she is unsure if they will be able to walk again,” he said.

Unit - 27

“We have since found that the rubbish truck was doing its round along Sakdidet Rd and had its hazard lights flashing to warn other motorists.

“However, the driver of the van came at high speed and crashed into the back of the truck,” he added.

Lt Sirinate told The Phuket News that the driver of the man, who he declined to name, will be facing charges of reckless driving causing serious injury to others.

Kurt, you only have to see the amount of helmet less riders, at Chalong circle yesterday 6+ officers stood directing traffic, to see RTP doesn't enforce the law!

Do people notice that many airport yellow plate minivan's have sprayed their plates in such a way that CCTV and speed camera's can't identify the car?
Seems to be allowed, never see RTP stop them.
If not allowed, than RTP is not enforcing the traffic laws.

Saw accident on beach road in Patong today where a red Patong Mart van with 3 people in the front smashed into the back of a car then had the cheek to honk the horn a few times before driving off & leaving the poor guy with a dent or two. I guess if he wants to report it at least he knows who these morons were working for.

Same thing different day. These mini van drivers are lethal to all other road users. They are un trained, drugged up, drunk, over tired and most unable to drive in the first place. Then whats worse they seem to be exempt from most law as for some stupid law they are private buses and not for public use. They should all be taken off the road unless they have a GREEN plate. Only then will the roads and visa / airport runs be safer.
