I wonder how much Siridet Rithplaeng, the driver of the car will have to pay to the family of Joseph Urbansky ?

a question with a surely not-expected answer: The guy was run over / hit / flattened out etc. by a car

Farang is always at fault because if he didn't come to Thailand, it never would have happened.

Poor guy and one feels for his wife. But are Westerners of this vintage, who probably haven't got astride a motorbike for decades, wise to hire one when on holiday here? It literally is dicing with death on roads which are among the most dangerous in the world.

It's all over for him anway, guess it all happened so quickly he didn't have time to feel much; feel sorry for his wife, dealing with the grief and the aftermath, especially if she's alone here.

Yeah, the use of this phrase intrigued me too;  'passenger car' is a bona fide English phrase, I think, and its meaning is obvious, just sounds strange here cos it's used outside of its normal context, and the writer treats 'passenger' as a noun rather than an adjective. Guess English isn't the writer's first language.

Sadly this is not uncommon with Europeans in Thailand. Not being used to driving on the left they instinctively look the wrong way when pulling out & into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Car driver not at fault. Same thing happened to a Dutch friend of mine 2 weeks ago, also in Cha Am.

Just about the dumbest thing anyone could ever say.

 

If the person driving the car wasn't born then the accident wouldn't have happened, so it's his fault for being born. Same logic.
