Lt Chanat Hongsuttichaikul of Chalong Police was notified of the accident, across the road from the expat-popular Islander Sports Bar & Restaurant, at 10:30am.

Arroving at the scene, police and rescue workers found a heavily damaged white Honda Jazz on its side among grass beside the road.

Parts of a spirit house, which many Thais believe provide some form of protection for people on the land, were found scattered across the ground.

The driver, Winyu Samart, 30, had suffered minor injuries and his passenger Nattaorn Runhan, 25, suffered an injury to her right leg.

Both were taken to Dibuk Hospital.

Mr Winyu told a rescue worker at the scene, “I was driving from Rawai Municipality toward Nai Harn Beach when I lost control of the car on the curve while coming down the hill.

“I panicked and hit the brakes, and the car slid out of control and hit a spirit house by the side of the road.”

Police have yet to confirm whether Mr Winyu will face any charges for the accident.

Never drive faster than you can think, and you will never panick.
Not the car but the driver 'slid' out of control at bright daylight on a non slippery good conditioned road.

Speed is your winner? It can make you a looser.
