Pattaya, 10 November 2010: A Pattaya songthaew (baht-bus taxi) driver was severely injured by a hit-and-run driver early this morning, Nov10, outside the Nakhornchai Pattaya Air-Bus Station on Sukhumvit Road, close to Central Pattaya Road. Rescue services were called at 5.30am to find a crowd of onlookers standing around Mr. Kasem Krajai [61], a Pattaya baht-bus taxi-driver, who was crying in pain and critically injured, with two broken legs, a head wound and other injuries.

The Sawang Boriboon paramedics had to use cutting equipment to free Mr. Kasem’s right leg from where it was trapped by the smashed-in taxi door. During the 30-minute operation, the paramedics rendered first aid to the victim, who was subsequently sent for emergency hospital treatment.

The blue Mitsubishi baht-bus was found to be extensively damaged, with a white Honda Jazz side-view mirror lying nearby. The paramedics notified the police, but they were unable to catch the miscreant driver.

Mr. Kasem’s friend, Mr. Phayom Namsaeng [51], also a baht-bus taxi-driver, told police that he and the accident victim had parked their baht-bus, waiting for the passengers. Whilst Mr. Kasem was opening the door to get out, a white Honda Jazz car, driving at high speed from the Central Pattaya intersection initially hit the back of Mr. Kasem’s vehicle. In his efforts to escape, the Jazz driver then attempted to turn his vehicle, hitting the baht-bus driver side door, and trapping Mr. Kasem’s leg in the door in the process. The Jazz driver, who it is suspected was drunk, then tore off in the direction of South Pattaya. Police are confident of bringing the hit-and-run driver to justice from the evidence of the witness.
