Lt Sunan Petchnoo of Thalang Police was notified of the accident, in front of Phra Nang Sang Temple in Thalang, at 0:10am.

Lt Sunan arrived at the scene together with Kusoldharm rescue workers to find a wrecked white Toyota pickup truck wrapped around a large spotlight pole on the central reservation.

Rescue workers removed the body of the driver, Chatree Thongjit, 31, from the wreck and transported his remains to Thalang Hospital.

Rescue workers then took about 15 minutes to free the passenger, Thanyaporn Unmai, 22, who had serious injuries to her legs and left arm and rushed her to Thalang Hospital. She was later transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

Workers from the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) Thalang Office took two hours to install a new pole and restore power supply to the area.

“The pickup truck was heading from the Heroines Monument towards Thalang at high speed while it was raining,” Lt Sunan said.

“The pickup truck first hit a smaller light pole in the central reservation and then collided with the large spotlight pole.

“At this stage that is all we know. We are continuing the investigation,” Lt Sunan added.

Sad to say, but since it is clear that the driver was going at an astonishingly crazy and irresponsible speed, luck that he only killed himself and not killed anybody else

I'm missing the part in the story where a child was hurt. "Girl" One man and one woman is all.

If the poor girl makes it back to health, then I'd be happy with the outcome of this accident. I would say this will continue as it is a lawless society, but that isn't true...there are laws on the books, although the penalties are way too lax to make a difference. The issue is that there is no law enforcement; therefore, the laws just don't matter. "0" policing = #1 road fatality rate on planet.

Does idiot high speed ( see outcome of it on the photos) need any further investigation?
As a insurance company I would requests a alcohol + drugs test of the driver.
If positive outcomes, the insurance can deny any claims.

It is time the government takes her responsibility, have police highway patrol cars on the road, 24 hrs a day, and stop these idiots while they are driving before accidents as shown here occur.

Yes, yes, I know, I am on Phuket, and dreaming.
