The man, Amnat Sitthisuk, was pronounced dead on arrival at Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town after rescue workers recovered his body unconscious and unresponsive from his wrecked Khon Kaen- registered pickup, which was wrapped around a large spotlight pole on the central reservation on Phra Phuket Kaew Rd.
Capt Nipon Temsang of Kathu Police was notified of the accident at 1:30am.

“At this stage we believe that Mr Amnat was driving from Kathu to Phuket Town at high speed or he might have swerved to avoid colliding with another vehicle,” Capt Nipon said.

“However, we are continuing our investigation,” he added.

“Even though the road has four lanes and there are warning lights and signs indicating the speed limit is 50km/h, many severe accidents still happen in this area, especially at night,” Capt Nipon noted.

Can anyone be surprised that speed limits are ignored when they are this unrealistic? 50 Kph on a main dual carriageway? 

Strange though, I drive that road almost every day and I've never noticed any signs saying it's 50 along there. I see them cluttering up the sides of several other arterial roads, but not that one.

For anyone, especially a police officer, to even mention speed lim...

Oh well you can say it till you are blue in the face. Just another idiot who cant drive committing suicide. Just have to look at the wreck to see he must have been going way too fast. just glad he chose the night time to kill himself as in the day time he could have killed women, children, tourists and any number of innocent people.
