'Micro-sleep' durian driver takes out cars, bike in Phuket

PHUKET: A pickup truck driver on his way to deliver durian in Phuket had what he later told police was a 'micro-sleep' yesterday (February 8) at about 10 am.

Noppadon Jongsuksai, 21, from Suphanburi, was rudely woken from his mini-snooze by a series of severe jolts and loud noises as his Nissan Navara truck took out two cars, a motorbike and a power pole about 300 metres from the main intersection in Kathu.

Noppadon told police that he had a job delivering durians and was taking a load from the downtown market in Phuket Town to a customer near Kathu waterfall when he nodded off.

Amazingly, no one was injured in the accident or by flying durians.
