Lt Col Somchai Nuboon of the Kathu Police was notified of the accident at 8:20pm.

Police and rescue workers arrived at the scene to find the driver, a British woman, in a state of emotional distress but with only minor physical injuries.

The car, a Chevrolet Trailblazer, however, was completely gutted by the fire.

According to the report, the woman may have been under medication at the time of the accident, which occurred after a domestic dispute.

The woman was taken to Kathu Police Station for questioning.

She is expected to return today as police continue their investigation into the accident, Col Somchai noted in his report.

Poor woman, instead of saying the road was slippery, talking about use of medicines at place of accident.  Of course RTP quickly made it 'under medication', not disturbed by any medical knowledge.
Seems RTP in this case is like Speedy Conzales in handling this happening. A promising  fruitfull affair. Very different from time handling thai taxi and Van drivers. ( with injured passengers)....
