A food vendor had his salad tossed, but was otherwise unhurt, when his food cart has rammed by a hit-and-run driver.

Sutep Mathito, 35, saw his motorbike-powered cart overturned Nov. 7 when it was hit by a bronze Toyota Vigo driven by Sranyoo Juiklang. The 23-year-old fled the scene, but was later arrested at his Soi Bongkot home after the mango-salad dealer caught his license plate number.

Bystanders gawk at the overturned papaya-poke-poke cart. Bystanders gawk at the overturned papaya-poke-poke cart.

Sranyoo admitted to police he’d been speeding down Beach Road, but didn’t realize he’d crashed into anyone. He did say he heard a sound, and saw his headlight and grill were broken, but didn’t bother to turn back to see if anyone was hurt.

The youth was charged with reckless driving and his car was impounded.
