Long-running roadwork in Naklua claimed another accident victim with a motorcyclist impaling his leg after he crashed into a hole in the road.

The driver, identified only as Thanin, was driving a motorbike after dark when he drove into ditch near Lan Po Market. A steel bar pierced his leg and paramedics had to cut him free before taking him to a nearby hospital.



The roadworks, running for a year and now overdue for completion, have been a source of accidents and misery from residents and drivers, who complain that contractors continually fail to adequately light and fence off their work sites.

Paramedics had to cut him free before taking him to a nearby hospital.
