Capt Warawut Sensop of the Thalang Police told The Phuket News this morning that he had yet to determine exactly what happened in the accident, but did confirm that three people were injured in the collisions.

The accident, involving a Fino motorbike, a Yamaha “big bike” and a Honda car, occurred in front of Ban Porn National Housing Authority estate at around 7:30pm, Capt Warawut said.

“One person sustained major injures and two sustained minor injuries, including a 6-year-old girl,” he said.

“All the injured were persons who were riding on motorbikes. The people travelling in the car were not injured,” he added.

Capt Warawut said that all three injured were taken to Thalang Hospital.

“Right now it is still unclear how the accident happened. I have yet to investigate because those involved are still hospitalised,” he said.

“No charges have been filed yet,” he confirmed.

However, photos of the scene provided to The Phuket News show the force of the impact left a section of the Yamaha “big bike” still lodged into the heavily damaged rear of the Honda City sedan involved in the accident.

Capt Warawut promptly ended the call before The Phuket News could enquire further about the incident.

A witness of the accident, who preferred not to be named told The Phuket News,  "A Fino motorbike turned left out of Mae Somphong market, while the big bike was speeding straight on the road. The Fino cut out in front of the big bike, causing the big bike to collide into the Fino."

"With the force of the big bike, it then crashed into the back of the white car that was driving in front," she said.

"The driver of the Fino was left injured in the middle of the central reservation.

"Another child and woman were left injured in the middle of the street," she added.

"The entire front of the big bike was totalled and the driver of the big bike was left injured in the central reservation, but he was not injured as he was wearing safety gear," said the witness.

That's why it's called an "accident"

The police don't know yet what caused the accident, but our chief commentator and analyst does. Amazing!

The rule is that it is okay to enter the stream of traffic to the left providing there is no one approaching from the right. The problem arises because the Thai drivers think it is a RIGHT to turn left.

A lovely together thing of speed, not looking right, not looking left, not anticipating ahead.
The car damage behind is impressive.
Than you get this happening. So unneeded.
Always sad that children are hurt because of 'adult driving'.
