Lt Col Kitiphum Thinthalang of Thalang Police was notified of the accident at about 2:50am.

Thalang Police officers and Kusoldharm Foundation rescue volunteers arrived at the scene near the PTT petrol station, Muang Mai branch on Thepkasattri Rd, north Thalang, to find a badly damaged Mitsubishi Triton pickup truck at the side of the road.

Police explained that the driver, 30-year-old Pol Cpl Sarawut Songmuang of Krabi Tourist Police, was driving from Krabi to Phuket and lost control on the wet road, falling into a ditch and hitting a wall causing the truck to flip over.

Cpl Sarawut managed to escape with only shoulder and chest pains and was taken to Thalang Hospital for treatment.

The truck was severely damaged, particularly on the right side. Police had it taken to Thalang Police Station.

Asked if Cpl Sarawut was tested for alcohol, Col Kitiphum told The Phuket News that he was not tested as he did not appear drunk.

Obviously drove to fast on a wet (??) road.
Not tested for alcohol because he not appeared to be drunk??? What kind of sloppy  unprofessional police work attitude is that? To exclude any doubts, specially as it concerns a police officer, a alcohol test should have been done.
