The bone-chilling incident occurred on the road under the Kanchanapisek expressway between Wong Wian Bang Khun Kong and Kanchanapisek Rd.

The container fell from a trailer truck at a curve on the expressway about 12:15pm, and landed flush on top of the Honda Civic car on the road beneath, Thai media reported.

The car driver survived with only minor injuries and was rushed to a nearby hospital. The sedan, which had Bangkok licence plates, is clearly a write-off.

Good Heaven! This man was lucky and blessed. Imagine if he had Passengers and children on the back seat. This Container Co and aslo Of course, the Transport Company must receive VERY HEAVY FINES  for such serious negligence or better still remove their Licences as well and a serious fine.
