Employees at the convenience store located at a PTT gas station in Bang Saray scrambled to get out of the way as the Almera compact barreled into the glass-fronted shop around 3 p.m. Nov. 19. The store sustained about 50,000 baht in damage, but no one was injured.
Was it an accident, or done on purpose? Until the hit and run driver is found, there is no way to be certain.
Assistant Manager Klitsana Weecheernchai saw the Nissan come into the gas station at high speed and attempt to corner into a 7-Eleven parking lot quickly. But instead of hitting the brakes, the driver apparently hit the accelerator, pulverizing the font of the store.
The Nissan’s driver did not stick around to assess any damage or injuries, immediately reversing and high-tailing it out of the gas station toward Pattaya. Security cameras caught a look at the car, but it appeared to be missing its license plate.
