A British-Thai man was injured when he crashed his car into a former Rayong police officer’s house while driving drunk.
Mark Michael Black, 26, suffered a minor head injury in the 5 a.m. accident on Soi Wat Bunyakanchanaram 4 Dec. 9. Medics attempted to transport him to the hospital for treatment, but Black jumped from the ambulance to continue the argument with his girlfriend that prompted the accident.
Black told police he and his girlfriend had been drinking with friends at Jomtien Beach when they got into a heated dispute. They left in his Toyota Altis with her driving but, at some point, Black ordered her out of the car.
Luckily no one was hurt when a British-Thai drunk driver crashed into this house.
She obliged and he drove off, drunk. Distracted by his anger, Black crashed the car during his commute home. After a phone call, the girlfriend reappeared at the accident scene.
Metra Phatisaena, 46, owner of the house, said she and her former police officer husband were sleeping when they heard the crash.
