KALASIN: -- A tragic accident killed a 45 year old female pedestrian in Kalasin at the weekend - and all because a negligent driver had loaded up his car with vegetation for his cows.

 

The driver had piled the grass on his boot and could not see at all through his rear window.

 

He heard a thud and thought he had gone over a rock but he had reversed over a woman killing her instantly.

 

Police found Wan Preekarn dead in a pool of blood on the hard shoulder. 77Jowo said half her head was flattened as she had been caught under the wheel. She was found face up. She was from Lup sub-district in Kalasin.

 

Nearby was parked an old white Mitsubishi car with the driver waiting for the arrival of the authorities. The driver was Somsan Hongsuwan, 46. On the back of his car was a pile of vegetation.

 

Somsan told police he had driven to get something for his cows to eat and placed the vegetation on the boot of his car. He was reversing and couldn't see properly so he was just using his mirrors.

 

He said he heard a large thud and though he had hit a pole or gone over a large rock. When he got out of his vehicle he realized what he had done.

 

Witnesses at the scene said that the woman was visiting friends in the area and had just got off a bus when she was run over.

 

Police released the body to relatives for cremation and detained Somsan on a charge of negligent driving causing death.

 

The accident occurred on Saturday on the Kalasin to Somdej district road (Route 12) in Muang district of Kalasin in Thailand's north east.

Look at the picture.......... the point of impact was before where the body is now. You will see a circle of blood where she was hit and then dragged forward to where the body is now.

It seems she was hit in full view of the driver.

 

Am I overthinking this???

I suppose at least he didn't "flee the scene".

Could well be. Or, he completely reversed the rear wheels over her, and then pulled forward with her trapped between the underside of the car and the rear wheels (look how low it is), thus dragging her and leaving the blood trail. Both are plausible. Sad.

I'm surprise that this doofus of a person didn't put the vegetation on his

front screen, at least that way he would  save a life, only people with rocks

in their head thing that they just reversed over a rock....

And the crucial part of the story missing "Why was he reversing".

Pathetic reporting.

 

 

 If he drove forward the weeds would have slid off the boot.Better question is, why didn't he make sure there weren't any obstacles in his way before driving with his vision blocked.
