The pickup comes to rest outside the Phuket beer garden last night

Phuket Pickup Runs Wild, Five Hurt in All-Action Smash

Tuesday, July 17, 2012
PHUKET: Five people were injured, two seriously, when a man who was probably drunk drove a pickup into motorcycles outside a Phuket City beer garden last night.

The spectacular crash came at 9.17pm, with the pickup smashing into five motorcycles parked outside the River Beer garden in Songkhla Road, in Phuket City's Rassada district.

The injured were all taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital while police questioned the pickup driver, Pattawoot Noisri, 33.

Thanking her lucky stars was the beer garden dj, Marisa Hardda, 30, whose parked Toyota Vios saloon was also damaged in the crash.

I am amazed that this isn't a more common occurrence the way people drive in this country.
