Tragedy just averted as school song thaew driver slapped with 5,000 baht fine and suspension

CCTV footage from an intersection near Kabinburi showed a fully loaded school song thaew (truck with seats) almost collide with other vehicles as the driver plowed through a red light.

 

The song thaew almost topples over such is the speed and swerve.

The children came from three area schools – Kabin Withaya, Jiamin School and Ruksasap School in Prachinburi.

Following the incident on Wednesday the local Department of Land Transport fined the driver Beng, 51, 5,000 baht and suspended him from driving for 30 days.

Beng apologised to reporters and society at large. He said the light was green then changed to amber and red as he passed. He tried to get through but it proved beyond his capabilities.
