    Russian killed in Jomtien road crash

    Russian killed in Jomtien road crash



    A Russian Mother who ran out into the road to pull her 7 year old daughter out of the path of an oncoming 18-wheel truck was herself run over and killed close to the Dor-Shada Hotel on the Sukhumvit Road in Na-Jomtien early on Saturday Morning.

    Na-Jomtien Police and rescue services were called to the scene of the crash, outside a Russian Restaurant, the Maya Pectopah Seafood Restaurant located next to the Hotel to deal with the crash scene.

    Lying on the road was the body of Mrs. Kolchanuva aged 30. She had sustained a number of life-ending injuries.

    Her 7 year old daughter was seriously injured and rushed to the Bangkok Hospital Pattaya for treatment.

    Witnesses to the crash claimed the family, consisting of the victim, her Husband and their daughter, had just left the Seafood Restaurant when the daughter ran out into the road.

    The victim ran out to pull her back but was struck by an 18-wheel truck, who witnesses claim would not have been able to avoid the collision with the victim.

    The truck driver, Khun Supachai aged 21, remained at the scene and supported witness statements and claimed he was powerless to avoid the accident.

    He was detained and taken to the Police station for further questioning.

    The Russian Embassy in Bangkok are now providing assistance to the victimís Daughter and Husband, who are understandably in a state of shock after a simple visit to a restaurant ended in the loss of a family member.

    That is something you don't see very often in a Thai motor accident (driver remaining at the scene). Tragic all round.

    RIP.

    The daughter must be in some hell of a state after that, her mum rushing over to save her and all.

    Unusual for a Thai driver to not flee the accident scene, but then again, it doesn't look like he was doing anything illegal.
