Rawai Road Collision Results in Multiple Injuries and Infrastructure Damage – VIDEOS

Rawai, Phuket-

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, a serious traffic incident occurred in Rawai, leading to a sequence of accidents that resulted in injuries and significant damage to public infrastructure.

At approximately 4:15 A.M., Chalong Police received reports of a collision on a curve in Rawai. Upon arrival, officers discovered a sedan that had collided with a power pole, causing it to fall and bring down electrical cables. The two occupants of the sedan sustained minor injuries.

In a related incident on the opposite lane, a minivan collided with an oil truck that had been obstructed by the fallen cables. This second collision led to three individuals in the minivan being injured and an oil spill from the damaged vehicle. All injured parties were promptly transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The Electric Authority was swiftly contacted to address the hazardous situation by removing the cables and repairing the power pole. Additionally, efforts were made to clean the oil spill from the roadway to prevent further accidents.

CCTV footage revealed that the sedan lost control while navigating the curve, leading to the initial crash into the power pole. The subsequent downing of cables created a barrier for taller vehicles, causing the oil truck to halt and the minivan to be unable to stop in time.

Authorities are currently reviewing the CCTV footage to determine the sequence of events and assess whether any charges will be filed against the drivers involved in the accidents. The investigation is ongoing, and further details will be provided as they become available.
