Thai man’s high-speed driving ends with minor injuries (video)

A 21 year old Thai man yesterday thanked his lucky stars after only sustaining minor injuries when driving his car at a high speed, crashing into two vehicles in front of him, before falling off a bridge onto Rama V Intersection in Nonthaburi province near Bangkok.

The accident occurred on the bridge over Nakhon-in Road and Rama V Intersection at around 11.30am yesterday, May 26. The Facebook page, FM91 Trafficpro, shared dashcam footage of the accident drawing numerous complaints about the injured driver, 21 year old Nattawut.

In the video, the grey Honda Jazz subcompact car is seen driving at high speed in the left lane and attempting to pass between two vehicles, an Isuzu D-Max pickup in the left lane and a Mitsubishi Expander SUV in the middle lane.

The gap between the two cars was too narrow for any vehicle to pass, causing the Honda to hit both vehicles. The SUV was seen swerving to the left and hitting the Honda, causing it to fall off the bridge.
