What was he thinking? Thai media pose question of driver who went the wrong way round a bend and killed a baby

SUPHANBURI: -- Thai Rath tried to get to the bottom of the horrific accident that saw a small baby die instantly and five others suffer severe injuries.

 

It emerges that the middle aged driver responsible for the carnage knew the area very well and had likely not been drinking.

 

But he had just had a massive row with his wife in front of relatives before driving off alone in a rage.

 

Earlier in the week a 20 second CCTV clip showed a grey pick-up going the wrong way round the Suan Taeng bend in Suphanburi. The pick-up - driven by 53 year old Wimon Phumkong - collided head on with a black vehicle carrying a mother and father, the six month old baby and a grandfather and grandmother.

 

Wimon remains in ICU and Muang Suphanburi police investigating are yet to talk to him.

 

But Wimon's wife Bamrung Phumkong, 49, spoke to Thai Rath Online reporters. She said that her husband lives in the area and knows it extremely well. He would not have been confused by the direction of the road.

 

He was also not suffering from any illness.

 

She said that shortly before the accident she had had a big argument with her husband in front of some relatives over buying some fish. Her husband had driven off in a furious rage.

 

She soon called him and when he didn't pick up she went to find him in another car. She then came upon the devastating scene at the accident site on the bend.

 

She said that her husband had given up drinking alcohol a long time ago. And he would not have had time in between their argument and the accident to have had a drink, she claimed.

 

Pratheuang Namdokmai of the Muang Suphanburi police said they were waiting until Wimon recovers sufficiently before proceeding with the case.

He will enter himself it to the Monk-hood, all is forgiven.

 

Sad that their was loss of life. Baby/Child seats, come on parents, a few hundred baht could have and would have saved your baby. Baby in the backseat safe, again, come on parents!

Yes it's important, don't care about what the parents of the death baby are thinking. It's Thai.
