Lt Khwansirinart Thairaj of the Wichit Police was notified of an accident involving a cement truck on Soi Nakaraj near the Phuket Deep Sea Port in Ao Makham at 2:25pm yesterday.

Kusoldharm rescue workers arrived at the scene to find a CPAC Company cement truck on its side down a 30 metres roadside hill. The cement truck driver, Mr Suriya Pattasri, 31, was found near the truck.

An unnamed rescue worker who attended the scene said, “The driver was heading to Soi Nakaraj from Phuket Town. When going up the hill, the driver tried to change gears but failed to do so. The cement truck started rolling backwards down the hill so the driver tried to brake but couldn’t.

“He managed to jump from his cab before the truck plunged down the hill,” he said.

“Luckily Mr Suriya only suffered minor injuries. He hurt his shoulder and was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket Town,” he added.

One only has to read the article to see how pointless comments are. Interpretations are never required.

Gotta laugh at the fools who know nothing of mechanics and can't  interpret an article properly. Fills in their day I suppose.

Do your pick:
1: The cement truck driver was not in control.
2: The cement truck gearbox and breaks were not functioning.

Anyway, what ever your pick will be, 'both' are not a danger this moment on Phuket roads for some time.
When was the last technical inspection of the cement truck?

What a luck this was not happening on Patong Hill.
