CHON BURI: -- Nine Indian tourists were slightly injured when their chartered van swerved to avoid hitting a car that cut in front of it before plunging into a roadside ditch in Chon Buri's Sri Racha district on Sunday morning.

 

police rushed to the scene on Sriracha Tiger Zoo-Nong Khor road in Tambon Nong Kham to find the van overturned just after 9am.

 

The injured tourists, all male aged between 26 and 40, were sent to Phyathai Hospital Sriracha. 

 

Slightly injured Thai driver Noppakhun Wongyai, 28, told police that he was taking the tourists from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport to visit the zoo when a car cut across his van, forcing him into the ditch.

 

Police detained Noppakhun for further questioning while a search was mounted for the car involved in the incident.

 

The injured tourists were identified as Vijendra Chauhan, 40, Ankit Khanna, 31, Khurram Ali, 35, Ashwani Agorwai, 37, Yashpal Singh, 38, Pawan Kumar Sharma, 36, Rajeev Verma, 36, Mihit Agarwal, 36, and Bilal Anwer, 26.

Usual over-reaction.

Known as the "crazy-swerve-manoeuvre".

Waited all day for someone else to ask the obvious three questions..but no one did so here goes..

 

1. Who is paying for the emergency room exams at Phyathai Hospital Sriracha? I think that's a private hospital as well so won't be inexpensive?

 

2. Who goes to the zoo after arrival at the airport from any place including from India? I love zoos but after a flight? or from the airport? I guess it could be explained but just wondering...

 

3. Why is every third Indian national you meet or read about named with the surname "Singh"?

 

Glad no one seriously injured and hope God Blesses them all.

no females? They must have come here to enjoy the natural beauties and clean beaches :-)

Hey falang07, who in his right mind would bring his wife or girl friend to Thailand?

Why do these people even come to Pattaya? They always walk around in groups of about 5, holding hands, leering at any female as if they've never seen a woman before, seldom spending money..They must know they're not liked surely?

Maybe the Indians can negotiate a group discount for treatment at the hospital.
