Si Racha –

A Korean driver, who is suspected by Nong Kham police of having been intoxicated, slammed his pickup truck into a power pole in Si Racha over the past weekend.

The Nong Kham Police was notified of the accident just before the past weekend around 8:00 P.M. on the Si Racha – Laem Chabang Road in Nong Kham.

Emergency responders and associated local Thai media arrived at the scene to find a heavily damaged pickup truck impacted into a power pole.

The injured man was identified as Mr. Lee Su K., a Korean national, 48 who lives in Si Racha and legally works in Banglamung.

The suspect at first allegedly refused to get out of the pickup truck and was described as “uncooperative” by emergency responders. According to Nong Kham police, the man smelled heavily of alcohol and appeared disoriented.  The suspect was taken to a local hospital for a medical evaluation.

Nong Kham police are continuing their investigation for further legal action to see if any charges will be pressed against the driver. It is not known at this time if they conducted a full blood alcohol test at the hospital.
