"...how did they fail to get out of the car ???"

How about initial impact and then the CRV overturning as it landed? Jesus...

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

"How did they not manage to break..." [sic]

The CRV was braking, kinetic energy is involved.

As long as not even the police knows the traffic rules in Thailand, it is hopeless. a total misinterpretation of the situation. ridiculous!

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

The CRV had started to turn right when it was hit from the side and it was braking, brake lights gave that away!

Interesting that it was the heavier vehicle that went over,but agree with above posters seems little evidence of braking,would not have thought the collision would be enough to damage breaking system,not sure where located on this model,maybe they just froze,where as anyone with good driver training would have instictivley braked.

"Interesting that it was the heavier vehicle that went over..."

Why?  Kinetic energy and the fact that the Vios hit the barrier first and weakened it?  How about that?

I often find myself amazed that fairly minor bashes turn into fatal ones.

i wondered why there is no real campaign to fix the road tolls. Just reading cnn and apparently 62people die a day on the roads and just 65people at new year on average. That says it all really. Most thais shouldnt be behind the wheel until common sense is a common trait. 

Both cars are at fault not to mention it doesnt look like a well thought out intersection like most.

The CRV may or may not have indicated a right-hand turn with their turn signals, but a more important point in my mind is clearing one's right-rear side before attempting a right-hand turn when it is possible for a vehicle to be there.

54 posts and you are the only one to mention this. Yes, the Toyota driver was in the wrong place and travelling too fast, but this terrible accident could so very easily have been avoided by the CRV driver applying basic driving principles and ensuring it was safe to do so before starting the turn.

I think it would be called a Racing Incident in F1. I d call it a pair of Chumps Collide.

Looking at the video,ok the crv did not indicate but the toyota driver had ample time to take evasive action,the crv was half way between the inside lines well before the honda reached it,one thing we dont know is why the crv was not in the right hand lane prior to that,also why did the toyota continue when a blind man can see the toyota could not make it safely to out run the crv on the turn,I also think if it is so that the toyota was going straight on,in that case i would charge the driver with causing death by dangerous driving,if it was Europe that person may be charged with manslaughter why did neither of them brake?even to the last second,it looks very much to me that it was 50-50 for all the reasons i have stated.That is only my guess and opinion but in Europe I would say that the car was more at fault how did he or she think for one second that they could force the crv back into the middle lane,because thats what it looks likeMy personal opinion is they were both engaged in something that distracted their attention,and if so its not hard to guess,although be it a guess,they were both using the phone.This as we know is common place here even on motorbikes and even the police I have seen it no end of times.RIP to the people who lost their lives.

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.

 

Thats exactly what i told my gf same second i saw the video. Have to look again though. For me it seems she thought she couldnt make the uturn and made a bigger circle by going out in wrong lane, and the car behind thought she changed her mind and wanted to go straight, because she was changing line

How do we know the Vios wasn't make a legal U-turn? I agree it looked like it was going too fast but the CRV's angle during the turn seems to be sharp enough it would cut into the U-turn lane anyways. I got my clip from Thairath TV on YouTube and  you can never really see the most crucial part of the accident where both cars start to turn.

 

I used to live around here before they added this mystery yellow lane and there were stop lights but it's not clear if drivers really understand that you MUST U-turn here. Seems like an accident waiting to happen.
