PHUKET: The marketing manager of Bangkok Hospital Phuket was found dead in her car after she slammed into a power pole heading southbound on Thepkrasattri Road last night.

Phuket City Police officers and Kusoldharm Foundation rescue workers found Nicha Chiwangkul, 46, from Surat Thani, pinned behind the wheel of her Honda Civic about 30 meters from the Bang Ku Intersection at about midnight.

“Ms Nicha had died by the time officers arrived,” Capt Weerachart Mora of the Phuket City Police told the Phuket Gazette.

Rescue workers took about 30 minutes to recover Ms Nicha’s body from the car.

A witness travelling north on Thepkrasattri at the time of the accident told police that he saw Ms Nicha’s car swerve toward the median. She then apparently over-corrected, likely trying to avoid impact, and ended up crashing into a power pole.

A staffer from Ms Nicha’s marketing team told the Gazette this morning, “We are so sorry for the family. Nicha was a very sweet big sister, and was very good at her job. We will miss her dearly. May she rest in peace.”

A public relations staffer told the Gazette that the hospital would release an official statement as soon as possible.

The body has been transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital.

Heavy rain across the country this weekend – local forecasts | The Thaiger

Heavy rain is expected across much of Thailand over the next few days, mostly as a result of the intensity of a tropical storm crossing into Vietnam today, ‘Noul’, from the South China Sea. The low pressure cell will help intensify the effects of the south west monsoon too. But the remnants of the storm won’t “slam” into Northern Thailand as one news site claimed – rather it will be a lot of rain and increased winds. The storm is expected to cross into Thailand around the Mukdahan province some time early tomorrow, Around the country, Saturday will be the […]

The Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha is rolling out his biggest weapon, fear, to try and persuade anti-government protesters to postpone tomorrow’s rally at the Thammasat University Tha Prachan campus. He asked them to consider putting off their plans to hold the rally at least “until the Covid-19 outbreak is over”. In a televised address, he asked Thais to unite in ending the Covid-19 crisis “before focusing on political issues”. PM Prayut has not mentioned ‘Covid’ as an issue before the other student rallies. The rally has been planned for this Saturday with student and anti-government groups demanding amendments to the 2017 […]
