PHUKET: A British expat involved in a horrific accident in which a pedestrian’s body was torn to pieces has been cleared of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident.

 

Paul John Mercer was driving his black Phuket-registered Mercedes-Benz C250 northbound along Thepkrasattri Rd in Muang Mai at about 4:45am on Oct 10 when he struck a man on the road.

 

The man, who was known to locals for collecting recyclable litter from the side of the road but who police have still yet to identify, was dismembered by the force of the impact. Parts of his body were left strewn across the road.

From the linked article ...

 

“I have the test results now, and it shows him negative for alcohol and drugs,” Capt Warawud said."

I work on many mine sites. There are drug tests and drug tests, newly made  synthetic stuff is very hard to detect. Most drug tests look at weed or coke.
