Sattahip, the 6th of October 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 6:00am on Wednesday, Lieutenant Pitichon Tertkiatkul (Sattahip Police Investigator) was notified of an accident adjacent the Sattahip Market along Sukhumvit Road. A team of officers along with the Sawang Rodjanatham Foundation were dispatched to the incident to investigate.

At the scene, approximately 20-meters from the Sattahip Market, officers found a large cow lying dead in the right hand land approaching the Lighthouse Roundabout on Sukhumvit Road. Four cars, a late model Toyota Corolla sedan, a Honda CVR, a Toyota Hilux and an Isuzu pickup all in variously damaged states.

Through investigation officer found that the Toyota Corolla, driven by Lieutenant Junior Grade Anucha Warawan [65], had impacted with the stray cow while travelling along Sukhumvit Road. The other three vehicles involved, forced to brake heavily as a result of the initial accident, hit each other in the rear.

At present, no one from the surrounding areas has come forth as the owner of the cow, which was reportedly observed wandering along the roadside before attempting to cross at the scene of the accident.

In a statement to police, Mr. Warawan explained that he had not seen the cow until the last minute at which point he was unable to avoid the accident. The cow reportedly hit the late model Toyota in the center of the bonnet before shattering the windshield and dying instantly. Mr. Warawan was largely unhurt in the incident, suffering only minor injuries and shock.

The Sawang Rodjanatham Foundation have now removed the dead cow, which is now expected to be buried. According to police, a nearby Muslim-run slaughterhouse had refused to take the cow as it had died by means other than those accepted in their religion.

Meanwhile, Mr. Warawan expressed his anger that he would be responsible for both the repairs to his vehicle and the possible burial of the involved cow.
