PHUKET: -- Two women were rushed to hospital this morning after the motorbike they were riding ploughed head-on into a fully loaded pickup truck heading up Patong Hill.

 

The women were heading eastbound down the steep descent toward Kathu when their motorbike struck the front of a Toyota pickup truck heading up the hill at about 6:30am, reported Kusoldharm rescue workers.

 

The accident occurred in front of the Patong City sign popular with tourists for taking souvenir photos.

Motorbikes typically stay left under braking going down the hill.  She looks to be on the uphill side of the road.

Coming home from an all-nighter perhaps? That's the normal MO for Phuket pre-breakfast crashes.

the pickup is clearly on the wrong side of the road, the motorbike could have been passing a slow moving lorry in low gear

The ladies were going home after a rough night of drinking.

There is a video(dash cam from the pickup truck) and graphic photos in the Thai news.  The ladies clearly were in the wrong lane and hit the pickup head-on.  There was nothing the pickup driver could of done to avoid it.  Luckily he had a dash cam. 

 

 

 

That's why we have dash cameras in our cars.
