    Motorcyclist ignores barrier, hit by train

    CHON BURI: A car salesman on a motorcycle was killed when he drove through a railway crossing barrier and into the path of a freight train in Pattaya township on Friday morning.


    Anucha Singthong, 33, ignored the lowered barriers at the crossing on a road near Muang Pattaya 7 School in tambon Nong Prue of Bang Lamung district about 10.30am, said Pol Maj Jirasak Aebfaeng, investigation chief at Nong Prue police station.


    His broken body fell to the ground beside the tracks. About 500 metres away, Laem Chabang-Mab Ta Phut freight train No 871 came to a stop with his crushed motorcycle jammed under the front of it.


    Witness Pongsri Pakdeeyut, 58, told police she stopped her motorcycle at the lowered barrier as the train approached the crossing.


    However, the man did not stop his bike. He instead rode around the barrier arm, even though the train driver sounded his horn. She also shouted loudly, trying to warn him of the approaching train, Ms Pongsri said.

    The dead man was taken to Bang Lamung Hospital. Relatives were called to take his body for religious rites.

    You really need to have Thais handcuffed for their own safety.


    Anything mechanical, electrical, or moving, is just too much for them to deal with safely.

    When cheating the system goes wrong....it'd already a thing playing the system, thus being "smarter" in many locals' eyes, but doing so you think one would look left and right before crossing but here it's a no no...rip smart one,I hope he learnt something and won't do it again (in his next life)

    I just wonder how they are going to resolve the perfect storm of high speed rail lines and Somchai violently needing to save 10 seconds from his day.

    By not having temporary railway crossing barriers for the high-speed rail lines.

    ^ the locals will find a way...i suspect tunnels will be dug, bamboo flyovers all of which will be overseen jointly by the local village head and fuzz for an appropriate surcharge.

    Concrete flyovers. All part of the high-speed rail project.

    Somchai won't ride 4 kms to a flyover when a perfectly acceptable jury rigged one allows him to save fuel and shorten his life...erm journey.

    Somchai won't need to ride 4 kms to get to a flyover. The flyover will take the same road and him over the railwayline.

    I have seen partially constructed flyovers over the new line on small country roads in the middle of nowhere.
    As to the original thread. I recorded a motorcyclist while I was waiting at boom gates at Bang Bon. As the traffic was banked up on both sides before the boom gate. The guy simply drove over the dividing strip onto the wrong side of the road then zig zagged across the track with the train coming, back onto the correct side of the road. Luckily for him the station is just past the road so the train was already slowing.

    Low value on life, confident that they'll reincarnate any number of times till they reach nirvana, so it doesn't matter if between now and then they come back as a soi dog or taketan.

    I use that crossing several x every day as it's between me and wherever I might wish to go. On the few occasions they're down I've only once seen some retard dodge through, but I still look around wondering which of my co-riders are eyeing the greener side and caught between heroics and being late for nowhere special.

    That's one of those quirks of my Arab friends. Trying to get them to work at a reasonable pace is often delayed because it is always "Inshallah" (If God is willing) or even "Bukhra Inshalla" (Tomorrow if God is willing).

    But put them in a rusty Totoya 300m from a traffic light that has turned amber and the pedal hits the metal....

    I've seen the results in the immediate aftermath of a train hitting a car on a level crossing.

    It was not pretty.

    No problem is "Maafi Mushkila".

    Malesh is "Easy".

    Either way, you just know they're only going to say it again tomorrow.

    The driver escaped with only minor injuries.

    That'll thin out the herd, naturally.
