    Oh, a good old fashioned fleeing of the scene.

    Makes a change from brake failure.

    Who says it isn't a farang by the way?

    "Police, hospital staff and rescue workers who rushed to the scene"

    That gives the culprit several hours probably.

    Witnessed my third traffic accident at the local market last Friday. Police never turned up at all. Ambulance took 30+ minutes to arrive. They're 2km up the road. Police 200m away.

    Or, more likely 5-up on a bike with no rear light. Car comes along and hits the damn thing without seeing it and ends up with 4 dead and a dying woman on his/her hands. Maybe no licence, maybe had a drink, maybe one of another hundred reasons to bugger off quick. One hopes the car had a licence plate and the owner can be tracked and name who was driving at the time.

    Even with a lookout in the passenger seat, I have had a few close encounters with bikes bearing no rear lights at night. Thailand can be a real bugger when it come to night driving.
