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

At least hard to find an explanation why they should ride at 6:30 AM in terrible weather.

No sunrise to watch I guess.

 Weather not so bad.  Just no 'customers' to service. Or maybe just a short time gig and off home.

You are right. Don't know where I saw the terrible weather (maybe just due to the "dull" video).

All looks dry.

They were obviously going downhill.

 

yes and the truck was obviously on the wrong side of the road as I have said already

 

and for the person that made the smart comment..............you are obviously not from Phuket....why should that make a difference, I have been to Phuket and all over Thailand

 

If it was up to me based on the horrendous track record and horrendous death toll on Phuket roads I would impose an absolute  strict 30kph speed limit on the whole Island with extreme penalties for those that  don't conform.....there are just too many people losing their lives on the island, it has got to be the worst in Thailand by a country mile

 

30kmph all day every where no exceptions strictly enforced  .......countless lives saved and an added 10mins to anyones journey

This one (somewhat graphic).

They were on the wrong side and speeding like you should not do except you are a professional racer. Too fast and loosing control in the curve swerving over the continuous yellow line.

NOTHING to blame on the pickup driver.

 

 

EDIT: sorry, "injured". I pronounced them dead already.

That must be heavy injuries.

Good luck.

Stupid girls

Sorry, but either new monitor or new glasses needed.

 

Two lanes up, one lane down divided by a continuous yellow line.

What's in question here?

 

 

Exactly correct, I drive that road often. going down one lane, going up hill 2 lanes.  Ladies looks like going far too fast and chatting, could not make the left hand bend, if they made that bend then next sharper right hand bend would has seen them off the road, not to mention the next sharp left bend.  All downhill trafic has to slow down to navigate those 3 bends safely.

It could be that simple.

I would not be surprised that most of those who got themselves into driving troubles are from Esarn and the Central Plains with little experience driving in mountainous terrain.
