Several of Ban Chang-area residents were injured when a Chonburi doctor lost control of his minivan, crashing it into a busy restaurant.
No one was killed when Dr. Theerawat Somphiwong’s Honda CRV smashed into two parked cars at two neighboring food outlets in the Samnuk Thonn neighborhood Dec. 3, but a 74-year-old vendor was severely injured.
People eating lunch inside this restaurant were lucky to escape with their lives.
The car, which pushed the two parked vehicles into the eatery after being cut off by a motorbike, finally stopped after crushing a table full of Royal Thai Navy pilots, who avoided death, but all sustained injuries. Theerawat also sustained cuts and bruises.
Pilot Srisakul Kaewprayod said the lunch-hour accident happened quickly and that he and his fellow pilots were lucky to have escaped with their lives.
