Grab Thailand announced Friday it had fired one of its drivers who allegedly assaulted a Chinese passenger on a roadside in Nonthaburi the day before.
Grab said it had received a complaint against the driver and terminated his contract.
The company apologized for the incident and said the driver’s alleged behavior was unacceptable and violated its rules.
Grab said it gives priority to passenger safety and carries insurance for them, which will cover the medical costs for the passenger allegedly injured in this case.
A passing military officer witnessed the incident and summoned police to the scene.
The driver and passengers had allegedly rowed, first over one man’s attempt to sit in the front seat and then over the disposition of a water bottle. nation
