Cement truck driver blames brake failure after vehicle overturns



A driver was able to escape serious injuries after the cement truck he was driving flipped over in Banglamung yesterday morning. The driver has blamed brake failure for the incident.

Emergency responders were notified of the accident on Saturday morning at 10am in Baan Ton Krarok. Police arrived to find the overturned cement truck on the road.

The 61 year old sustained only minor injuries.

Speaking to The Pattaya News, the driver said he lost control at a curve in the road.

“I was going to a construction site to deliver cement. When I arrived at a curve, I lost control of the truck as the truck suffered a sudden brake failure. ”

“I shouted out to warn other road users to get out of my way. I decided to hit the side of the road to stop the truck.”

Police have been reviewing CCTV footage and will consider charges.

    These muppets have absolutely NO IDEA of how to control a car, let alone a heavy vehicle!! They are incapable of driving to the road conditions, using the gear box and throttle to maintain control over a vehicle, observing the road any further forward than the wipers and are ALWAYS riding the brakes!

    This is another clear cut case of BRAIN FAILURE of the steering wheel attendant!! Bloody hopeless!

    If an accident happens in Thailand, it always happens for two reasons: “the brakes failed” or “I did not see him” To come up with another reason for them is like a first grader trying to solve a logarithmic equation. Muppets show.
