I can't agree with that...the CRV driver  should have seen the vehicle in the right most lane

and should have been in the right most lane to make the turn...not cut across the other lane.

 

Correct: The Honda CRV driver cut-off the Toyota.
The reason she is been charged with negligent driving is probably because she's not a "celebrity"....

 

 

Wrong !!! 

 

The Vios was in a U-Turn only lane. 

The CRV was in a Turn right or go straight lane. 

The vios sped up the inside attempting to queue jump. 

 

The driver if the Vios was in the wrong. The driver of the CRV made no faulty or illegal manoeuvre. 

 

That said: how did either car not break before the barrier... a sad loss of life which seems completely avoidable even after impact. 

Then, how did they fail to get out of the car ???

Not correct. The Toyota was on a yellow marked shoulder. Not a lane. Forbidden to drive on yellow marked shoulders. Also, there are beacons separating the shoulder from the lane. Nobody should be there.

All correct after that.

Severe trauma which lead to immediate death according to initial reports. Dead people don´t leave cars by themselves.

If they are turning into a shop or a gas station or whatever ...they never seem to get into the proper lane before making the turn. On thousands of occasions I see them making the turn from the 2nd lane out.

Amen to that.

For the black car to be at fault it must have been travelling on the shoulder of the road going straight ahead and the silver Honda was in the appropriate lane turning right. The black car also seemed to travelling too fast in that situation You see drivers all the time using the shoulder of the road to beat the traffic and quite often taxi drivers and mini buses do it. You also don't see drivers getting booked for doing this. It seems to be accepted practise unless something goes drastically wrong, as in this case.

Strange.. no attempts were made by the CRV to either hit the breaks or steer away from this disaster that was completely avoidable...

I didn't see any use of indicators although the clip isn't particularly clear.

Sadly I reached that conclusion too.

Totally agree, but the CRV driver is dead and cannot get extorted,  I dont see any reason to blame the black Toyota driver.

How did they not manage to break before falling down? The collission was hardly a massive impact that would knock you out. Amazing ...

"Break"??   they certainly broke the bridge barriers which are not very strong it seems.

Looked like the Vios was travelling at speed on the shoulder of the road illegally to beat traffic.  The Vios would have had a little bit more time to react and brake as it was behind the Honda. The Honda driver was totally blindsided from behind and would have had no time to react.

It was a totally unexpected impact from behind from a car travelling at speed. Very little time to react and brake. The black car had slightly more time to brake as the other car was in front.

Toyota going too fast in filter lane.

SUV not in extreme right lane.

Barrier not do its job.

All 3 of above points to blame.

The problem is that the black was driving in a part of the road that is NOT a vehicle lane.

Didn't see  the turning signal on on the SUV + the black Toyota was on the apron of the road shouldn't be there at all. Toyota should've been on the lane Left side of the SUV,,, But being in Thailand  one has to drive Watching all sides because nobody gives a shit about road rules.
