An unfortunate accident in Pattaya left a Swiss expat critically injured after a car collided with his three-wheeled electric scooter. The incident occurred as the 73 year old man was en route to buy some medicine. It also sparked a call for justice from his wife, who alleges that the driver of the other vehicle has refused to accept responsibility.

The victim, identified as Andeks Geisbuehler, was out on April 19 around 9.50am to buy his regular medication. The incident happened on a road alongside a railway in the Khao Talo area, South Pattaya. The collision, involving an Isuzu Mu-X and Geisbuehler’s scooter, was captured on CCTV footage as he navigated an intersection.

Following the accident, Geisbuehler was quickly transported to hospital, where he remains in the ICU with serious injuries. His wife, Samrit Geisbuehler, expressed her disappointment in the driver of the car, who, she claims, has not offered any form of support or financial assistance.

“Medical expenses have already surpassed 200,000 baht.”

According to Samrit, the driver, whose name is being withheld due to the ongoing investigation, attempted to shift the entire responsibility to his insurance company.

Along with the financial concerns, Samrit is also worried about the progress of the investigation into the accident. Nongprue police, handling the case, have yet to establish who was at fault in the incident, nor have they arranged a meeting between the two parties involved.

Concerned that her husband’s case may not receive the attention it deserves, Samrit is reaching out to the media to help seek justice. She is determined to ensure that the driver is held accountable for his actions and that her husband’s situation does not go ignored, reported Pattaya News.

“I want justice for my husband.”
