Mr Marco Antonio, a 40-year-old German tourist, was driving alone in his rented white Honda when he collided with a grey rented Toyota being driven by 38-year-old Thai national Miss Tananrat Sriboonyarux and her two passengers, who were both also Thai.
Police confirmed the four involved in the crash are safe and have been taken to Bangkok Hospital Phuket.
Capt Chalermsak Akkatian of Kathu Police Station was notified of the accident at 1:12 pm today.
“There were two cars involved in an accident this afternoon that included Thai and foreign drivers,” he confirmed.
“The total number of people injured was four. Thankfully the injuries are not serious and just left those involved slightly shaken with minor headaches, some initial breathing difficulties and some minimal scratches.
“Eye witness reports indicate one of the cars crossed over into the opposite lane which is when they collided,” said Capt Chalermsak.
"The accident brought traffic to a halt in both lanes for a while. The cars have now been removed and traffic movements have resumed to normal.”
Asked whether anyone would be facing charges for the accident, Capt Chalermsak replied: “I need to see whether there is any CCTV camera footage available to allow me to investigate further.
“I am on my way to Bangkok Hospital Phuket right now to check on their condition and also question them about the incident,” he added.
