The pregnant woman is helped after last night's triple bypass crash

Pregnant Woman in Phuket Bypass Road Triple Crash: Car Demolished by Light Pole

Wednesday, July 3, 2013
PHUKET: A pregnant Western woman was driving one of three cars involved in a spectacular crash at the t-intersection of Phuket's bypass road with Thepkasattri Road last night.

The woman, seven months pregnant, was taken to hospital as a precaution along with two men, the drivers of the other vehicles.

The crash came about 9.30pm when Na Pimpa, 61, turned right from Thepkasattri Road into the bypass road and encountered work being done at the road neat the intersection.

His car veered across the median strip into oncoming traffic, collecting cars being driven by Pongnarin Chooman, 25, and the pregnant woman.

All three were taken to hospital but did not appear seriously injured, according to Kusuldharm Phuket Foundation paramedics who attended the triple crash.

About 30 minutes later, a man in a car crashed into one of the new lightpoles in Thepkasattri Road, bending the pole and breaking the car into small pieces.

The driver was taken to Thalang Hospital.

"Car Demolished by Light Pole" sounds somehow like "Light Pole suddenly jumped on the road".

You got it.


Lucky it wasn't a heavy pole or the damage could have been worse!
