Lt Sunan Patnoo, an investigator from Thalang Police Station, was notified by a local resident at 5:30am today that a car had crashed into the back of a stationary excavator on Sunthon Rd in Baan Manik.

Lt Sunan explained, “There were three foreigners injured in the accident. Kusoldharm rescue workers attended the scene to provide medical assistance and later transported the injured parties to Thalang Hospital

We later found that the three people were Russian nationals; Mr Martynov Pavel, 23, Ms Natalia Eremikhina, 23, and Mr Savenko Vitaliy, 50,” he said.

We have been told that Mr Savenko was driving the white Toyota Vios towards Heroines Monument when he drove into the back of the excavator which had no warning lights.

We believe the accident happened because it was dark and Mr Savenko could not see the parked excavator. However, we will investigate further to find the true cause of the accident,” he added.

Marcher; If I am not mistaken we can see on the PN photo that the lights of the white car are still on ( front and tail).
The photo also shows that the white car was not driving with high speed seen the impact.
A parked excavator without warning lights parked on a traffic lane of a road. It is against the law. 
Do we now also have to anticipate on such dumb doings?

Only that was my comment, ematt. A correct comment. 
Not what you wrote you said I did, and actually not did.  :-)

So glad that Kurt took the time to investigate the accident scene and interview the Russians, so that he could "explane everything" to the rest of us...

Recently a large group of thai officials of Ministery of Education, Head masters of thai schools, went on work visit to Singapore to get a many days guiding about education in Singapore. It was a eye opener. All thai came back, very enthusiastic about what they saw, and like to implement it in Thailand. ( story BangkokPost)

Perhaps it is time that thai contractors, technical engineers, road safety supervisors, underpass builders also visit Singapore and learn about 24/7 working, and how to work/ build sufficient within time frames they themselve set.
Put a bit of thai road safety inspectors too on that plane, so in future no just left excavators at roads without safety precautions and lights. They will learn that in Singapore.

At Phuket road works are flashing light lay out not as it should be. Sometimes quite funny/confusing. If there are any.

No flashing lights at night to inform drivers about road work all along the road under repair.

Yes. A huge yellow excavator must be difficult to see if you are driving at high speed without your lights on!
