I assume you have never walked Jomtien Second Road, which is an informal motorbike path in constant usage, due in part to poor placement of U turns etc. Nearly run over several times there and that is even with keeping an eye out for bikes.

It's safe to assume that you don't know that the accident did not happen on Jomtien Second Road so the condition of that road's pavements is irrelevant.

We all know that back home in our developed nations that this Russian would now be facing time in prison for involuntary manslaughter and driving offences, but I am and always have been confused as to what happens here in these situations. We all know money talks in Thailand but I have not heard much about the aftermath of these incidents with farang killing people either by bike or car, what would be the 'standard' or 'normal' sentence he is probably looking at realistically? 

pay the cops to make bail and leave the country would be my guess. i know a guy who killed a girl drink driving and he paid everyone out and did not do jail time.

very sad all around, i dont agree with drinking and driving but if some one walks out into the road its not always the driver fault and just cos hes over the drink drive limit he get all the blame and then get well and truly fxxxxxd. these accidents happens all the time when people are not drinking and driving also.

I  recently saw a horrific you tube styled CCTV video compilation  which showed pedestrian after pedestrian ,  dozens of them. many whom were young woman killed outright by motor vehicles, and guess what?They were all using smart phones.It would have to be one of the most dangerous things anyone can do and i implore people not to talk, text or surf while they  walk!

yes and even more dangerous when driving lol

In the case of a Western guy killing a Thai family member when speeding & then fleeing the scene of the accident in Pattaya (stopped & arrested 30 minutes later), Thai police negotiated on the behalf of family and family received 300k baht, plus 30k baht for funeral expenses. As compensation accepted no Court prosecution. Don't know if or how much tea money paid to police


Yeah I thought so.. hence why we have heard no word about the recent case of the Liverpudlian guy who killed to Thai guys after he had been drinking all afternoon.

didn't see him because he was blind drunk

 

RIP

Making a video call while walking on the Soi is not exactly behaving with due care and diligence either.

May he RIP.

The news report said morning but clearly this is in the middle of the night. Lots of drunk driving going on and if you have to walk , walk on the pavement if you can.  Maybe the victim was not focused and drunk too.   A direct hit like that will kill even if he was driving around 60 km/h .
