SATTAHIP – July 16, 2012 [Pattaya Daily News]; At 5:30 a.m., Pol. Lt. Thanasak Prasartthong, investigating police officer on duty, Sattahip police station, Chonburi province, was notified of an overturned Isuzu Dmax pickup truck on the road. The bronze-color truck, license number POR NGOR-9670 Amnartjaroen, was lying on the side of the road by the intersection of Route 332 km 2/500 Kasemphol near the entrance of Wat Toongprong, Tambon Bangsarey, AmphurSattahip, Chonburi province.

The police officer rushed to the scene with the rescue officer of the Sawangrojjanathammasathan Sattahip foundation. They found the overturned pickup truck, with its left tire and front mirror broken. Scattered around the truck was pieces of a wooden box that was carrying fighting cocks. The driver, Mr.Kitiphum Chomsri, 28, was not injured, although he was shaken up by the crash. Mr. Kitiphum is a teacher at a well-known Sattahip school.

Mr. Kitiphum told police that he had driven the pickup truck upcountry to a fighting cock farm, intending to buy 3 good fighting cocks costing about 35,000 each. He had more than 100,000 THB for his purchase.

But on his way home, at the intersection where the accident occurred, a motorbike rider making a turn from the entrance of Wat Toongprong crossed in front of his pickup truck. He swerved his pickup truck to avoid a collision, causing the truck to overturn and fall to the side of the road.

Fortunately Mr. Kitiphum was not injured, but the box holding the three fighting cocks got damaged, allowing the frightened fowl to disappear into the forest. The officers and Mr. Kitiphum then searched for the cocks, but due to the darkness of the forested area, couldn’t find the missing birds. As a result, Mr. Kitiphum may lose his 100,000 THB invested in the fugitive cocks who returned to nature.
