Rescue workers were called to the curve on Thepkrasattri Rd near the Tha Reua Shrine, just south of the Heroines Monument, at 4:15am, where a car had slid on the wet road surface and hit a road sign bedside the road.

Police and rescue workers arrived to find a Phuket-registered Honda City sedan had suffered heavy damage after hitting a sign.

The driver, a man, was injured and rushed to Thalang Hospital, rescue workers reported.

The car was taken to Thalang Police Station while police continued their investigation, noting that government property had been damaged in the incident.

Why? He advertised as an English expert, certified in translations and spoke excellent English. Once I explained how the sun rises  on the same side of the street his office was on, he understood what east meant- he had just never been taught it.

Well then Christy you should learn to speak better Thai.

Thailand would do well to teach students about physics and natural sciences. I once asked a lawyer on which side of the road his office was on, east or west, he had no idea what I was talking about.

Wet roads do NOT bring 'accidents'. Careless drivers who do not adjust to the road conditions cause CRASHES. Perversely when it rains here I notice drivers actually speed up as there is less traffic on the road!
