Police Lieutenant Nitipoom Butwong, Banglamung Police Investigator, received a report of the accident at 1.30 am, on December 15, which happened at Moo. 6, in front of Banglamung sub-station, Siam Country Club Road and sent a combined team from the Police, Sawangboriboon Rescue and Nongprue Fire Department to attempt a rescue. At the scene, police found a green Mercedes E 240 from Bangkok split in half, the back of which was burning furiously. Luckily, fire officers managed to put out the fire immediately.

The front part of the car had split off and gone straight into a bush after hitting the pylon. Police found two men trapped inside, Mr. Songpol Wimooktayon [24] the driver and Mr. Watsilp Imcha-em [28]. Fortunately, they were both still alive, but in a very critical state and unable to give any information. The officials subsequently rushed them to Bangkok Pattaya and Banglamung Hospitals.

            

 

In the car, police also found documents and a sword from the Army Lieutenant Academy. Witnesses told the police that the car had been driving very fast, coming from Mabprachan Reservoir, heading towards Sukhumvit. When it arrived at the bend, the driver was going too fast to control the car, which then impacted with the high voltage electrical pylon pole, hard enough to cut the car in two behind the driver’s seat.

Police registered the report and will investigate the two men further, if and when they recover.
