The accident occurred at about 9:15am, causing massive traffic tailbacks southbound along one of the busiest roads on the island.

“The bus driver was driving too fast and collided into the back of a black van, which as a result hit the pickup truck in front of it,” Capt Jarat Lempan of the Wichit Police told The Phuket News today.

“Another pickup truck also hit the back of the bus,” he added.

“The vehicles in front of the bus had stopped because there was traffic in the underpass. Traffic in that area is normal in the mornings.” Col Jarat said.

“But the bus driver was reckless and drove too fast and did not stop in time,” he said.

“There were no serious injuries, only a woman in the black van directly in front of the bus sustained some minor injuries,” he added.

“The bus driver who was at fault has been charged with reckless driving,” Col Jarat confirmed.

Hold on, no that's back home not here, sorry! lol  Of course a 3 lane underpass is ideal, room for emergency services, but then when they cant enforce even a simple helmet law or ghost riding or riding on the pavement even in front of the police station, how do you think they wil...

Yes, that Patong tunnel building will become a many years drama. 
Many thai Phuket people anyway not like it to be build.

Phuket Officials are at fault not to have 3 lanes operational. 
If they did there would have not been a pile-up!

And  manage a Patong tunnel operational properly is impossible to expect, as Phuket officials not even able to manage a simple Darasamut 3 lane Underpass.

Pick up behind the bus was also driving reckless, otherwise it would not have bumped into the back of the bus.

The whole affair proofs wrong use of a underpass with 3 lanes.
Making it to use as a 2 lane underpass was stupid.
Look at the photos, a fine 3rd center lane blocked by concrete blocks, preventing even ambulances to reach a spot in the underpass when needed.
It is almost criminal, bu...
