"In the aftermath of the accident, police are persisting with their investigation. They are seeking to determine the exact cause of the crash and to establish whether any legal action is warranted."

 

They're joking aren't they? - it would be the first time in Thai motoring history if they do.

One of the major contributiing factors to Thailand's appalling record on road safety is that there is never a proper sci44entific analysis of the incidents so nothing is learned.

" He told local media that he may have fallen asleep at the wheel."

Seems a fairly open and shut case. Maybe an investigation into exactly how many hours driving he had done since his last sleep period might be in order!

unbelievable! - that is not how you analyse a crash. It isn't a simplistic blame game - you learn nothing from that...it goes much, much further than the driver...

Firstly the verbal statement of the driver and the observations of the police who are almost totally untrained in RAS analysis are more than a waste of time they are misleading.

Driver statements are most likely constructed to minimise the blame on his part - and as such wildly inaccurate.

You talk about "sleep period" - well that just touches on the WHY of any accident....there is certainly no law enforcement with driving hours or proper training - companies pressure drivers to do long hours and there is a culture of the faster you drive the quicker you arrive.

THen there is the road - how fast was the vehicle travelling - speed mass distance travelled etc. will tell us how fast the vehicle was going when control was lost and whether the vehicle was braking or not (you don't break in your sleep)

Why did barriers not prevent it from leaving the carriageway

Were there obstacles that increased the damage to the vehicle

How safe are the vehicles themselves

Were seat belts fitted and worn

Was the driver intoxicated or on any stimulants.

Basically in any European country, I can tell you answers to this and much more on EVERY reported accident for decades past - https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/reported-road-accidents-vehicles-and-casualties-tables-for-great-britain#all-collision-casualty-and-vehicle-tables-excel-format

If you don't know what your dealing with, you can't prevent further incidents.
