Perpetrators: Negligent bus driver

Victims: 28 injured; 2 dead

What: A horrible bus accident happened in the wee hours of the morning on December 15th, 2020, on the outer ring road around Khlong Sam Wa district in Bangkok. The bus overturned on the highway. An electric pole was knocked over nearby.

The bus was carrying the Phu Thai mor lam music group. Injured passengers were found sprawled everywhere on the highway and some were still trapped in the bus crying for help.

28 people were injured, 2 died, one of the deceased was a dance teacher.

The driver, Mr. Udomlarp, 51, who suffered head injuries, said that he drove the bus into a barrier that he didn’t see. The bus overturned and hit the electric pole. The driver drove into the wrong lane and entered a truck weighing station.

It’s the second time this music crew had been in an accident, the last time being in 2018, but there were no casualties that time.

My take: Two accidents in as many years for this group. Sadly, one of the dance instructors lost their life because of the negligence of the bus driver. Who thinks the driver will have any consequences for the accident?
