    Foreigners die in Phuket car crash

    Foreigners die in Phuket car crash

    The driver and a passenger were killed in the accident.

    PHUKET: Two foreigners died this morning and two more suffered serious injuries after the Toyota Vios they were travelling in slammed into a roadside power pole in central Phuket.

    A rescue worker at the scene told the Phuket Gazette that the accident happened at about 5am at the U-turn on Wichit Songkhram Road near Thai Naan Restaurant.

    “One of the men – the driver – died after being taken to hospital. The woman sitting directly behind him died instantly,” he said.

    The other two passengers, a man sitting in the front passenger seat and another woman sitting in the back, suffered serious injuries.

    The man is still recovering at Phuket International Hospital. The woman, initially rushed to to Bangkok Hospital Phuket, was transferred to Vachira Phuket Hospital about two hours ago.

    The body of the woman who died is also now at Vachira Hospital, he added.

    Staff at Vachira told the Gazette that they believe the two survivors and the female victim are Russian nationals, and that the driver was likely from Kuwait.

    The Russian honorary consulate in Phuket has been unavailable for comment this afternoon.

    Speed and vodka would be a good guess.

    Sadly true, those power poles do not jump out in front of you. Still a stiff price to pay for what was likely planned as a fun evening.

    Diving like a Thai in Thailand isn't a smart thing to do.

    Didn't see any report of this.

    Perhaps some idiot pulled out in front of them and they had to swerve to avoid them, lost control and rip.

    Actually it was two Middle Eastern guys with two Russian women. Now I wonder what that was about? Please keep your eyes on the road during intercourse.

    I'd like to see the other side of the car. Maybe they were T-boned by a medicated sip-lor driver.
