Teen motorcyclist injured after hitting construction site hazard

Friday, 28 December 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 52 By  Patcharapol Panrak

A teenager sustained cuts and broken bones when he crashed his motorbike into a pile of dirt left on Sukhumvit Road by construction workers.

Singhsamut student Chettnath Nutnet, 15, was treated at Queen Sirikit Hospital after the Dec. 19 accident at the 167-kilometer marker in Bang Saray.

Witness Chaiyant Ruanphrom told police the teen had hit dirt that had spilled over from the construction site of the Ban Bangsarae housing development. The soil had been piled up along the roadside where it will be used to cover drainage pipes being laid.

Police contacted the development’s owner to order workers to remove the road hazard.

Workers hurriedly remove the dangerous pile of dirt before anyone else is injured. Workers hurriedly remove the dangerous pile of dirt before anyone else is injured.

    "Police contacted the development’s owner to order workers to remove the road hazard." Such nonsense. Should'nt a 15 year old not be driving to begin with. Someone needs to inform the police who hve no doubt headed in search of the next ATM. Everyday incidents like this never fail to remind me that Thailand is still very much a third world country for all its boasts.
