The recent event where a truck operator hit a pair of motorcyclists and then shirked accountability has caused a public furor. Chalipa Rinradamanee, also known by her pseudonym Pim Seefor, chose to face the driver, following an accident that left her son and his companion in a wounded state. Despite initially expressing regret, the truck operator later backed out, blaming his tight schedule for not being able to confront Pim. The unfortunate mishap took place earlier in the day, around 10:40 am, in the vicinity of Lam Luk Ka Police Station.
The victims, Pim’s son and his pal, were casually coming back from their university when the sudden catastrophe happened. They were on their motorbike, peacefully waiting at a red signal near Klong 5 intersection, located in Bueng Kham Phroi, Lam Luk Ka, in Pathum Thani. Out of nowhere, an oil-transporting truck smacked into them, due to a failure in applying brakes promptly, resulting in severe injuries to the innocent youngsters.
While the motorcyclist sustained critical bruises including three fractured ribs, Pim’s son wasn’t spared either, suffering from multiple lacerations. Immediately after the unfortunate event, Pim reached out to the truck operator, who then conceded on his inability to stop promptly, and expressed his regret. Swift action from emergency services ensured the injured were rushed to a nearby hospital promptly.
Although the truck’s insurance firm vowed to take charge of the scenario, the end result was in stark contradiction to their promise. Pim made numerous attempts to get through to the truck operator, even changing her contact number for maximum effort. However, his indifference, coupled with his inclination towards the worth of the oil he was ferrying, over the harmed individuals, rendered a feeling of disappointment and shock in Pim.
After a series of attempts and discussions, the truck operator eventually confessed his wrongdoing and confirmed a rendezvous at the police station. However, he continued to justify his absence at the hospital, citing work commitments, which further infuriated Pim, as per a report by KhaoSod.
The agreed meeting at Lam Luk Ka Police Station eventually took place, where the truck operator, a man in his mid-50s, referred to as Itthichai (actual surname withheld), eventually apologized for his actions. The police elucidated the legal aspects tied to the case, and another meeting was scheduled for November 20, to negotiate insurance coverage and compensation particulars. Itthichai offered an explanation for his initial unwillingness to face the situation, attributing it to his fear of being attacked, as he had received multiple calls concerning the matter. However, these claims were rebuffed and marked as untrue.
