PHUKET: The owner of the 18-wheel truck which crushed Sophie Emma Rose Anderson on May 8 has today (May 19) given her family B20,000 in contribution to funeral arrangements.

 

Mr Suwan Maad Adan was at Thalang Police station at 2.30pm to hand over the B20,000, which was received on behalf of Ms Anderson’s family by her ex-husband and father of her five-year-old son.

 

“I wanted to give this money because I feel very sorry for what happened. I feel very sorry for her child, and I feel sorry for her. I wish it had never happened,” Mr Suwan told The Phuket News,” Mr Suwan said.

 

“My truck insurance representative is working on getting the compensation payment now. But this B20,000 is from me, to Sophie’s family, for her funeral,” he added.

 

Ms Anderson’s ex-husband, named only as ‘John’, was also at Thalang Police Station in the afternoon, along with a Tourist Police officer, to provide additional background information about Ms Anderson in the ongoing investigation.

Danny Glass says he has not been charged with reckless driving and has contacted the Thai police and the British Embassy and they also are not aware of any charges of reckless driving.

What a lovely gesture.

I hope that Mr Glass will be doing the same for Sophie's child with all the revenue generated from his YouTube video's .

If you did say that and are now reiterating it, it makes you look quite foolish considering all the FACTS that have been made available on this very forum alone that show that the truck/ truckdriver was 100% blameless.

EDIT

As an aside, i'm not too sure why the truck insurance is going to make payment..strange.

I sure have. when turned 21 I passed my PSV (Public Service Vehicle) test and daily drove a large city double decker. Then I got my HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) Class 1 and briefly drove a large truck.

I'm sure he is pleased with his claim of innocence ...

"YouTubers" make quite a lot of money from their video's, the more subscribers they get the more they make, the more 'likes" etc.

Mr Glass will be making money out of this sad event so I hope he is generous enough to see that some of it goes to Ms Anderson's son now that his mother is not there to use her YouTube earnings for him.

 

I don't want to go off topic but can anyone tell me what visa exactly one has to get in order to earn money from the  internet while living here in Thailand? When I watched the above video I was surprised just how many people are living here off their earnings from YouTube.
