Thai bus crash leaves 17 dead

A BUS crash in Thailand overnight left at least 17 people dead and 59 others injured, highway police said.

They said a bus travelling from the northeast province of Nakhon Ratchasima to the capital careered across the road, smashing into another bus and a pickup truck travelling the opposite way about 145km from Bangkok.

 

Police believe the bus lost control in slippery road conditions caused by rain.

 

The three people travelling in the pickup truck were killed, as well as 14 people from the two buses, they said.

 

All the 59 injured, including between eight and ten people in a critical condition, were sent to five hospitals nearby.

This is the main road from Bangkok to Korat, Khon Kaen, Udon Thani a friend of mine left at 6am this morning on the bus from Pattaya to Udon Thani personally for the difference an additional 800 Baht I would rather fly not only that 10 hours on a bus is no joke some of these drivers are maniacs behind the wheel. I have heard that their wages are cut if they dont arrive on time if it's true then the bus company should also share the blame.

800 baht not to sit 10 hours on a bus is well worth the price.

I'm amazed there are not more of these accidents the way the Thai's drive all over the road, while having a few passengers atop the roof. I think it's definitely a wise investment to fly if possible.

career (MOVE)

verb [i usually + adverb or preposition]

(especially of a vehicle) to move fast and uncontrollably:

 

eg The coach careered down a slope and collided with a bank.

A Puritan is someone who is deathly afraid that someone, somewhere, is having fun.

i have traveled many times on buses in Thailand , mainly through the night , i have often thought they were going to fast or over take when they cannot see round corners. . sad news , how many poor Thais have been left with a hospital bills not through there own fault.Life is hard enough for them and busses are the only way most of them can travel.

Travled by bus quite a bit with GF. mostly at night. She always wanted to sit in the front row

on the top level until I explained we would be first killed in a crash. Slept most of the time.

Always getting woke up by swerving driver. sometimes I was'nt sure if we both were'nt asleep!

Thats pretty bad and at first I thought it may have been due to a driver falling asleep at the wheel.

 

I've been asked why I get a taxi from BBK to Patts instead of a bus because its cheaper before and this story has just re-affirmed my choice.

 

No rush and just a steady pace to Patts in 1 1/2 hours for me evertime.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
