Both survived. Only one hospitalized.

They seem to get a second chance.

(from a Phuket Gazette report in another thread)

 

Women? Well close to.

The crash victims were both ladyboys riding from Patong toward Phuket Town, Kathu Police officers told Phuket Gazette reporters.

Kusoldharm Foundation rescue workers transported them to Patong Hospital. The more severely injured of the two was later transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital, where she remains in the Intensive Care Unit.

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. 

 

 

they can come in pretty handy; when you need one, you REALLY need one

Freeze the clip at 17 seconds, both the girls are laughing like its a day out at the beach...

555,I really don't think they would be laughing at that point, more like screaming in panic IMO.

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 

Yes, you said that already, and you were wrong already.  Have a look at the video and come back to apologize please.

The two men on the bike are apparently recovering well in hospital. Fortunately they are out of danger. The bike rider may be charged.

 

"Mr Nattharikar has not been charged yet as he is still recovering in hospital, but will most likely be charged with reckless driving"

What side of the road did you drive on when you were "All over Thailand"?

You obviously have no idea re that stretch of road/lane set up, look at the video and learn something.

Sadly a typical case of 'target fixation', you will go on a bike ,exactly to the point you focus on!

Thats rubbish! People don't beep at this point, they beep three times about 300 meters up the road at the peak of patong hill outside the Chinese temple, they do this both ways towards Patong and towards Kathu (the direction these two ladies were heading, travelling way too fast for that corner and not paying attention)

I was meaning the dangerous bend with loads of small sala's at the side of the road ,not the Chinese temple. Thats much further away.
A local told me ,but i haven't been back since 2004 so they might have changed the road layout since then.

Afraid there no small sala's of which you speak from 13 years ago in that area, as said only beeps now are for good merit at the temple at top of hill.
