A 36 year old amulet trader has had a lucky escape and is recovering in hospital after the car he was driving was hit by a train in the southern province of Chumphon. Kamol Srikhong, from Trang, escaped with only minor injuries following the collision, which occurred at an unguarded level crossing at around 10.30pm last night.

The Bangkok Post reports that Kamol suffered a broken collarbone and some bruising. Police and rescuers found his car, a black Nissan sedan with Krabi plates, lying on the tracks, having sustained extensive damage. The train was travelling from Bangkok to Trang. Police have launched an investigation into the cause of the collision.

    He has all those Amulats, and a train hits him.
    Not much good were they?

    “the car he was driving was hit by a train”. I beg to differ, a train was hit by the car he was driving. That’s a very important distinction.

    “Police have launched an investigation into the cause of the collision”…..well, considering the train only travels on the tracks and never deviates from them onto the road, there is only 1 explanation.
    The car was on the tracks at the same time the train was passing the crossing…..very simple.
