Two drama students were injured after being struck by a car while crossing a busy street in Nakhon Pathom.
Patcha Kumku and Pawinee Sangsiri, both 16, remained in comas at two hospitals in the central province following the Sept. 23 accident outside the Bunditpatanasilpa Institute’s College of Dramatic Arts.
The girls and another vocational student were using a pedestrian crossing when a speeding Toyota Vios overtaking over cars slammed into them. Patcha, in a coma, remained in critical condition with brain swelling. Pawinee sustained minor injuries as the third student pulled her away from the speeding car.
Driver Chatakorn Huadying, 41, has not yet been charged as Patcha remains unconscious. However, police pulled his dashcam video footage that clearly showed him overtaking other cars near the school.
