Aust man faces charges after Thai accident

Added: 22.06.2017 5:27 | 18 views | 0 comments

An Australian man is facing criminal charges following a traffic accident in central Thailand that left two people dead and a third in a critical condition in hospital. The 55-year-old expat is being held in police custody following the accident in Udon Thani, 560 kilometres north of Bangkok. Local media say the accident occurred when the Australian, driving an Isuzu utility, attempted to flee police after a minor accident where he grazed a local taxi and bus near a shopping mall. The Australian is reported to have panicked after police took chase and allegedly crashed into a motorbike driven by a 50 year old woman and carrying two young male passengers. The woman died at the scene, while her 15-year-old nephew was taken to Udon Thani Hospital where he later died from his injuries. The woman's 11 year old son survived the accident but is reported to be seriously injured. The man told police he had been drowsy after taking medicine following a visit to a local clinic, according to local media reports. His legal representative confirmed to AAP from the local police cells that the accident occurred on Tuesday and said the man was too distressed to speak. "He still doesn't want to talk about it," she said. She was unable to provide details of the charges but said the man will face court at a later date.
