One dead, three injured in family trip to Phuket | The Thaiger

PHUKET: One woman died and a father and daughter were rushed to Vachira Phuket Hospital with critical injuries after their car crashed into a roadside canal yesterday in northern Phuket.

Police and Kusoldharm Foundation rescue workers were called to the scene, on Thepkrasattri Road northbound, about 200 meters from the Hongyok Bumrung School in Baan Suan Maphrao, at about 5:15pm.

They found the car on its side in a two-meter-deep canal, Lt Thanom Thongpan of the Tah Chat Chai Police told the Phuket Gazette.

A family of three – Surin Hanthon, 38; Supawanee Samutbal, 41; and Sunida Hanthon, 11 – were driving home to Phang Na after running errands in Phuket with their neighbor, 28-year-old Saisamon Kruabaen, when the accident happened, Lt Thanom said.

The car was travelling at high speed when the driver, Mr Surin, suddenly swerved to avoid hitting a car in front, said Lt Thanom.

Local villagers helped to pull the four victims out of the car while waiting for rescue teams to arrive, Lt Thanom said.

Ms Saisamon died at the scene, and the family of three were taken immediately to Thalang Hospital for initial treatment.

Ms Supawanee was discharged soon after, as she had only minor scratches and bruises, said Lt Thanom.

“However, Mr Surin and Ms Sunida were transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital for further treatment because of the severity of their head and internal injuries,” he said.

“They are in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit.”

A Bangkok-based social enterprise has made its debut in Phuket as it opened a new zero-waste shop, cafe and vocational training centre in Cherng Talay.

The shop is run by Steps With Theera and provides a range of plastic substitutes including bamboo straw sets, bamboo toothbrushes and SuperBee wax wraps, alongside a refill station with beauty products from HUG and cleaning products from Conscious Living and Pungungreen.

Steps with Theera runs vocational training centres for young people and adults with learning differences. Alongside the training centres, it runs businesses for trainees to get hands-on work experience.

“We’re very excited to announce that Steps with Theera is expanding! We’ve now made our way down to Phuket. I’m Stacey, and I have been lucky enough to join the team and head up the Phuket branch. I am very excited to be a part of this great new adventure.”

Max Simpson, one of the Steps founders, the shop will give trainees the chance to learn some key skills, stock taking and running workshops.

“Our mission is about providing opportunities for people with learning differences to demonstrate their capabilities, and how they can add value to all types of workplace. Zero-waste seemed the natural choice for us, since we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and have pledged to go plastic-free in all our cafes by the end of October 2019.“

The shop opened to the public back on September 9. The vocational centre is already running and taking on trainees, with the cafe due to open later this year.

“Our zero waste shop will be open from early September so please do come by. We are collecting secondhand furniture and workman’s tools that need a second chance at life so that we can complete the set-up of the zero waste shop – donations are welcome!”

A 6 year old Burmese boy has died following a motorcycle accident when his parents crashed the vehicle onto a pick-up truck earlier this week. He died in the intensive care ward at Vachira Hospital yesterday morning (Thursday)

The accident occurred on September 15 near Soi Pramote, Chaofa West Road, Chalong. The boy’s father, 39 year old Thein Zaw, ended up with a head injury and his left leg was damaged. His mother, 39 year old Poehnin Phyu, suffered severe neck and head injuries and so did the boy. He was rushed to hospital in a coma but his mother was announced dead at the scene.

The father and son were rushed to Vachira Hospital in Samkong where the boy and his father received intensive treatment but the 6 year old succumbed to his injuries.

Witnesses told the police that they saw a Toyota Hilux Vigo pickup truck with Phang Nga number plates, driven by 39 year old Adit Pusuwan, heading from Phuket town towards Chalong circle. They told police they heard the loud noise of the pickup truck increasing speed before stopping at a 7-11 in front of Soi Pramote.

The driver was seen sitting in the car revving the engine with a loud noise. He headed into 7-11 before getting back in and then drove the car to the next U-turn and turned quickly. The motorcycle of the Burmese family was driving in the opposite lane and slammed into the side of the pickup truck.

After the accident, Adit waited for the police to arrive before being taken to police station for further questioning.
