A Pattaya recycling center owner was injured when he apparently fell asleep before crashing his car into a ditch in Sattahip.

Surapol Subcharoen, 38, was found pinned inside his smashed Toyota Camry at the 170-kilometer marker in front of navy housing on Sukhumvit Road around 3:30 a.m. Oct. 2.

It’s hard to believe anyone could have survived this crash, but apparently Surapol Subcharoen did.  He was still inside when this photo was taken.It’s hard to believe anyone could have survived this crash, but apparently Surapol Subcharoen did.  He was still inside when this photo was taken.

Rescuers had to use “jaws of life” to cut Surapol out of the car. He was taken to Queen Sirikit Naval Medical Center for treatment.  He received cuts and bruises, along with some internal injuries, but survived the crash.

Surapol, who owns the Subcharoen Khaa Khong Gao used-materials trading business, apparently fell asleep at the wheel before veering off the road, crashing into two trees and landing in the ditch.
