Lt Romthiya Suwannaphan of the Phuket City Police was called to the scene, at the entrance to Phuket Community Hall off Palian Rd, at about 10:30am.

At the scene Lt Romthiya found the governor’s official car, a black Toyota Camry hybrid bearing licence plates ‘กก 11’, and a white Honda City sedan had come together, each with minor damage to the front right corner of the car.

The cars had not been moved, and were still touching. 

Governor Narong was standing to the side, observing the damage.
