A man was killed and 2 others were injured in a traffic accident last night in Bangkok’s Nong Khaem district. Thai media says 35 year old Natthawat was driving a “souped up” Nissan Skyline when he lost control of the sports car, driving over the median and colliding with an oncoming van.

Police responding to the accident on Petchkasem Road and say Natthawat was pronounced dead at the scene. His girlfriend, 26 year old Khemmika, was taken to the hospital with a broken arm. The driver of the van, 56 year old Bunsong, was also taken to the hospital with leg injuries.

A woman who runs a roadside shop witnessed the accident. She told police she heard an engine rev, then saw the sports car drive by and lose control.

Police are still investigating and are reviewing surveillance camera footage in the area.

    Sadly all we get after this accident is a load of cliches from both comments and the police.
    There will be no thorough scientific breakdown of what happened and we will learn nothing, only reinforcing our confirmation bias on the topic

    @Tony Black – I think it was an r32 from the looks of it… Which can cost 2MB – 3.5MB in Thailand (Secondhand)
