Baht bus driver vindicated after report he ejected bleeding Russian

PATTAYA:--A Pattaya baht bus driver was fined 1,000 baht for slamming on the brakes, injuring a Russian tourist, leading to a bogus claim that almost cost the driver his license.

 

Chayapat Rithbamrung, 41, became the latest object of scorn on the Thai interwebs after a Family Mart clerk told police he ejected a bleeding Vera Ivanova, 26, from his truck after she bashed her head on a roof support Nov. 28.

 

In fact, he didn’t. Both Ivanova and Chayapat confirmed the Russian got off the baht bus of her own accord after being injured. And she didn’t pay. Police warned Sakda Kulamart, 19, not to spread false stories and suggested to Chayapat that the driver could sue the clerk for defamation.

 

The tempest in a teapot erupted around 3:30 a.m. when Ivanova and a friend hopped on a baht bus at the Pattaya Bus Station to go to their hotel. Chayapat said he was about to enter a Thappraya Road intersection when a motorist ran the red light. He braked to avoid an accident and Ivanova banged her head on the metal roof strut.

Not bad looking even with the bandages.

Nice thighs compared to the skinny toothpic looking ones on some of the Thai bar girls.

One would think injury to a body would be more serious than injury to a reputation,,,but not in Thailand. 

Where did it say that was the case?  The injury was the result of an accident, the injured woman did not make a complaint about it, she left the bus of her own accord so surely it's up to her to decide how important it was?

 

In this case the driver could have been in a lot of difficulty through no fault of his own had this not been sorted out properly which makes the potential defamation pretty bloody important.
