BANGKOK – December 18, 2012[Pattaya Daily News]; at 2:30 a.m., a report of fighting that injured a woman after a car collision was received by Pol. Sub. Lt. Nunthavuth Sriyavuth, investigation officer, Pechkasem police station, Bangkok.

The incident occurred at the exit of Karnchanapisek Road in front of the Honda car center in Bangkhae, Bangkok. At the scene, police discovered a damaged silver Mini Cooper resting on a traffic island. It had collided with golden bronze Toyota Tiger pickup truck. No one was injured in the collision.

However, after police discovered that a friend of one of the drivers was hospitalized after being assaulted by a friend of the other driver, the police took both drivers to the police station. The driver of the Mini Cooper was identified as Ms. Kanitta Panamathang, age 30. The owner of the Toyota pickup truck was identified as Ms. Jidapha Inphrom, age 27.

The inured victim was a friend of Ms. Kanitta. She was identified as Ms. Natcha Sungsuwan age 36. Ms. Kanitta had been beaten by a male acquaintance of M. Jidapha, who punched at her eyes and body until they got bruised and she fell unconscious on the road. The rescue officer of Bangkhae highway had assisted to send Ms. Natcha to Bangpakok 8 International Hospital for treatment.

During questioning by police, Ms. Kanitta said she owns a fish canning factory in Mahachai, Samutsakorn province. She was driving her car back home, but her steering wheel suddenly locked up, and she could not steer either left or right. So she decided to brake her car immediately, and switched on her emergency flashers.

However, Ms. Jidapha’s pickup truck then collided with the back of her car. No one was injured as both cars came to a stop. Both women got out of the cars and were peacefully negotiating the matter.

Then Ms. Kanitta said that the boyfriend of Ms. Jidapha, who appeared about 30-35 years old, drove up and parked his pickup truck to help her in the negotiations. However, the boyfriend appeared to be drunk, so Ms. Kanitta hurried to call her close friend, Ms. Natcha, to drive from her house to accompany Ms. Kanitta as they waited for the insurance officer together.

When Ms. Natcha arrived, she said “We had better wait for the insurance officers of the two sides to negotiate.” Then the boyfriend of Ms. Jidapha punched Ms. Natcha until she got unconscious on the road. So the rescue officers forbade the man from further violence and sent Ms. Natcha to the hospital. Then the boyfriend of Ms. Jidapha drove away in his pickup truck to escape into the darkness.

Police then questioned the Toyota pickup driver, Ms. Jidapha, for her version of the incident. She told police that she was driving her pickup truck back after collecting the rental fee from a shop in the World Heritage and Red Cross fair in Phranakorn, Sri Ayudhaya province.

But she got into the accident of her truck colliding with the back of Ms. Kanitta’s car. They got out of their vehicles and were negotiating the matter.

Then “Mr. Joong” drove up and parked his pickup truck, and came out of his truck to help. She said that Mr. Joong is a vendor of wood and incense, and he is her customer who rents the shop to sell goods at the fair.

But when the woman friend of Ms. Kanitta arrived, she spoke words that made Mr. Joong felt unsatisfied. So Mr. Joong got angry and punched her several times, and then drove away in his pickup truck to escape. Ms. Jidapha didn’t know where Mr. Joong lives, because she just knows him from collecting the rental fee at the fair.

Pol. Sub. Lt. Nunthavuth said this case is really two separate events: the vehicle collision and the beating of the woman. For the vehicle collision, the police had to investigate the two sides and compile evidence before coordinating with the car insurance officers to negotiate the damage costs.

As for the assault of Ms. Natcha, police were informed that she had regained consciousness. So police sent the rescue officer to pick her up from Bangpakok 8 International hospital and bring her to Pechkasem police station, where she will also be examined by the doctor at Police hospital to document her injuries.

Police will also follow up to track down Mr. Joong and charge him in an accusation of beating another person until she got injured, and will prosecute further according to the law.
