Erstwhile?  Better look that term up- it means formerly.

Another Thai vehicle with a mind of it's own. Maybe it didn't like ithe way it's owner treated it and decided to teach her a lesson. Could she have fallen asleep while riding? Sounds like she was not wearing a helmet either.

Another haunted vehicle crashing itself into an inanimate object while it's heroic erstwhile driver no doubt desperately struggles to wrestle control back from the demon so intent on causing them harm.
