Deputy inspector of Thalang Police Capt Ekkasak Kwanhwan was notified by radio that a woman had sustained serious injuries, and another young man minor injuries, in a road accident in front of Banporn Furniture on Thepkrasattri Road (southbound).

After receiving the notification, police arrived at the scene with Srisoonthorn Municipality rescue workers and Pa Khlok Municipality rescue workers to find a Toyota Hilux Mighty-X parked on the side of the road with its right front door open.

About 10 metres away was a yellow-black scoopy scooter on its side and a woman lying on the road, bleeding profusely, said Capt Ekkasak.

The woman, Benjaporn Limsakul, 46, was rushed to Thalang Hospital, however she later died of her injuries.

Another man, 22-year-old Nattapon Manimai from Thepkrasattri sub-district, Thalang also sustained minor injuries and was taken to Thalang Hospital.

The owner of the pick-up truck, 53-year-old Vichai Vichitchanya, from Phang Nga told police that he was driving from Phang Nga to Phuket Town.

“He parked to enter a convenience store, however he opened the door without caution and Ms Benjaporn collided with the door, falling into the middle of the road,” said Capt Ekkasak.

“Mr Nattapon, who was following behind, crashed into Ms Benjaporn’s Scoopy motorbike and also fell over,” he said.

“The hospital said that the doctor tried their best to help Ms Benjaporn, but unfortunately her injuries were too bad. Police have charged Mr Vichai for reckless driving causing injury and death,” said Capt Ekkasak.

We see/notice it daily, cars parking just on the road in front of a convenient store, while many times a short distance ahead/before is more saving parking possible. To lazy to walk a few meters.
Opening car doors without taking a notice of up coming traffic, also very common.
It is all about: ...I....I... and never mind other road users.

Hopeless people.

 Yet another needless death on phukets roads because of the stupidity of the drivers who are clueless on how to drive and behave on the roads. Nothing is ever done or ever will be to make Phuket a safe place to drive. As long as the helmet tax is collected then nothing else seems to matter.
