Pattaya, Thailand – A tour bus rammed into multiple vehicles, including a motorbike, on South Pattaya Road on October 2, resulting in significant damage and multiple injuries. The incident occurred when a white tour bus from Bangkok veered across lanes, hitting parked vehicles, including two sedans and a small truck. A motorcyclist passing by identified as 22-year-old Suthima Prompiban, was also injured. Rescuers provided immediate medical assistance on-site and then transported the injured motorcyclist to Banglamung Hospital for further treatment.

The bus driver, 41-year-old Bancha Chaonawan, who was transporting Indian tourists, reported experiencing sudden dizziness, leading to a loss of control and the subsequent collision.
