BANGKOK: An enraged wife who crashed her new Toyota Fortuner into a Mercedes carrying her husband and his mistress in Pathum Thani on Saturday has not taken any responsibility in regards to third-party victims who sustained injuries and property damage, two victims said on Monday.
The unnamed wife crashed into the Mercedes-Benz carrying her husband and his mistress after pursuing them in Pathum Thani’s Thanyaburi district on Saturday afternoon, damaging three other cars and injuring six.
One victim, PhD student and Thailand Science Park researcher Peerapong Boonchuay, 39, who is being treated at Bangpakok Hospital Rangsit, said he and five friends were returning from Nakhon Nayok in a car heading towards their homes in Rangsit when the crash occurred.
He suffered a head injury and sought hospital treatment, he said adding that the woman who reportedly caused the accident had not contacted him to express responsibility and that he would let police handle the case.
Another victim, Sukhon Karasang, 24, whose Toyota Avanza car was hit, said she was driving in the far left lane at a normal speed when the Toyota Fortuner rammed into her vehicle’s front left side.
Sukhon said she saw the woman who drove the Toyota Fortuner after the accident and shouted at her for causing the crash.
She also said the woman admitted to being behind the wheel and said she would take responsibility for the damage. “But that’s all. So far, neither the woman nor an insurance company has contacted me,” she said, adding that she had also testified to police about what had happened.
Thanyaburi police investigator Pol Lt-Colonel Boonying Bunditthai said police on Monday morning interviewed three drivers involved in the incident, including the driver of the Mercedes, Sukhon and an unnamed driver in the morning, but the woman driving the Toyota Fortuner had not talked to police. – The Nation/Asia News Network
