Pattaya woman crushed to death by pickup truck in tragic accident

A Pattaya woman was crushed to death by a pickup truck in a tragic accident after being hit head-on when walking around her car.

According to The Pattaya News, the woman pulled over her car beside the road in front of Lotus Express in the Nongprue sub-district of Banglamung district yesterday at 5pm.

Then, CCTV footage at the front of the store showed 47 year old Bussara Pinijmontri Dawarker exiting her car and walking around her vehicle.

A white pickup truck then suddenly emerged and crashed head-on into Bussara and ran her over.

Bussara sustained multiple, critical injuries with rescue services pronouncing her dead at the scene before transporting her to a nearby hospital for funeral arrangements.

Pattaya Police questioned the pickup driver, 30 year old Kiattisak Chenram but he declined to provide a statement. Police say he looked intoxicated. Kiattisak’s wife was also in the car and appeared shocked by the incident.

Police say she claimed that her husband tried to avoid a motorcycle that cut off their truck. This forced her husband to abruptly change lanes and crash into Bussara.

The wife also added that her husband was sick and had just taken pills, which is why he looked intoxicated.

But, the police didn’t buy her story and took him to be tested for drugs and alcohol at the station. The results of those tests have not been released to the public.

Bussara’s body is at a local hospital awaiting religious rites.

Meanwhile, a US woman suspected in a deadly hit-and-run has reportedly fled to Thailand. The FBI says the woman, Tubtim “Sue” Howson, from Oakland Township, Michigan is suspected of hitting and killing a 22 year old man on New Year’s Day.

The woman is originally from Thailand but has US citizenship.

The FBI is working with Thai police to have her reprimanded and possibly extradited for her alleged crime.
