A team of police along with rescue officers from the Sawang Boriboon Foundation rushed to the scene.

Officers arrived at the scene – NPK car accessories shop – to find the extensively damaged remains of a Bronze Honda Civic sitting inside the shop which had also been severely damaged along with the boiled rice street vendor’s stall outside the shop. The occupants of the vehicle were found to be Mr. Kanet Krongchon [30] and Mr. Sutat Honyaem [30] both municipal officials from the Huay Yai district. Both men appeared to be severely intoxicated but had not suffered any serious injuries.

Mr. Narongsak Thatsorn [30] and his son Master Weerachai Thatsorn [11] who were sleeping inside the shop at the time had suffered minor injuries and were sent to the Bangkok Pattaya Hospital.

Police interrogated Mr. Somphob Thorngsom (Boiled Rice Restaurant Operator) who stated that he had seen the car approaching at high speed before it drove directly into the front of the NPK shop. Mr. Thorngsom stated that he had been cooking for a few customers at the time, but luckily everybody managed to avoid the accident.

Police have filed a report of the incident and have begun investigating with all the witnesses, whilst the driver has been arrested pending further judicial proceedings.
