PATTAYA – February 22, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 4 a.m., a report of a car colliding with a tour bus and erupting into flames was received by Pol. Capt. Thitiwas Boon-orn, investigation officer, Pattaya police station, Chonburi province. He rushed to the scene with the firemen and rescue officers of Sawangboribul Pattaya foundation.

The incident occurred at Rachwaroon club road, Soi Kasetsin 3, Moo 11 Tambon Nong Preu, Amphur Banglamung, Chonburi province.

At the scene, officers found a severely-damaged white Toyota Vios parked in the middle of the road. Fires were burning inside the vehicle’s engine compartment and car interior. Fireman began spraying water on the vehicle and took 20 minutes to extinguish the flames.

The five shaken-up Russian tourists who had been inside the car were standing a safe distance away. They were able to exit the burning car immediately and were not injured. The driver of the car was identified as Ms. Leyla Boltynova, age 32.

Parked about 300 meters away was the tour bus that the car had hit. It was a white Sunlong bus, owned by the Hongthongsine Sport Corporation Co., Ltd. The front driver’s side of the bus had scrapes and dents from the collision.

Standing by the side of the bus waiting for the police was the bus driver, identified as Mr. Veerasak Deearsa, age 49. He described to officers what had happened. He had been on his way to pick up Russian customers at the Cozy Beach hotel.

But as he approached the curve in the road, he saw an oncoming car driven at a high speed was losing control on the curve. It was coming right at his bus, so he blasted his horn. But the car collided with the front of his bus and then spun around and slid 300 meters down the road.

When the car came to a stop, smoke was coming from its engine compartment. Then a fire started under the hood, which spread to the whole car. The group of 5 male and female people in the car hurried to escape from the vehicle and barely made it out in time to survive.

After inspecting and investigating at the incident in detail, the police made notes for evidence before questioning the two parties involved in the incident to investigate in detail again.

Initially, police assumed that Ms. Leyla was driving at a high speed and was unfamiliar with the road. So when she arrived at the curve, she lost control and could not control her car, which collided with the oncoming tour bus and slid 300 meters, before the fire started from the engine compartment and quickly engulfed the entire vehicle.
