Somchai Sittipon from the PEA Customer Service Department told The Phuket News this afternoon (Dec 22), “The accident happened at around 10:20am this morning, but luckily it didn’t affect the power supply in the area.

“We are now in the process of replacing the pole,” he said.

A passing motorist added, “I don’t know how the accident happened, but I think the brakes on the water truck failed and this led to the accident.

“A motorbike was dragged under the truck but the driver did not get hit by the vehicle and he was uninjured,” the man, who declined to be named, said.

This is unbelievable.How can this be possible unless the driver was asleep. It looks like he reversed into it on a busy main road or how else can he have hit it and for it to fall on the back of the truck??
