I can see the offside front tyre is for all to see , can anyone get a look to see if tread was there !  Not that it makes any different to anything as the wet trees were to blame.

I would say speed was a factor looking at the amount of damage, possibly phone use as well and these together with Thai's general inability to drive on anything but straight, dry roads in daylight =  yet another screw up !

They can't drive on straight dry roads either. There have been 15 accidents within 500 metres of my house in the past three years, some involving deaths and amputations. One of the more recent ones happened at around 10.30 at night and the driver said he swerved off the road to avoid someone crossing it. In three years I have never once seen anyone walk at night on the country road I live on, and there wasn't one that night either. A ghost, perhaps. Another time a car actually took off and went through the top branches of a tree. But then a lot of Thai drivers manage to defy the law of physics.

Good thing that the shutters were down at the BTS station or he may have made it onto the platform. Imagine the confusion if that had happened! What would they charge the pickup?

Not allowed to use the lift unless he registers as disabled driver!:saai:

Don't you think considerable speed may have been a attributing factor as a car doing 60 - 70 k surely wouldn't have propelled that far in with a force to tip it. So sad to see this thai society so backward in their attitude to road use and safety!
