Swiss Expat Critically Injured in Scooter-Car Crash in Pattaya

Pattaya —

A Swiss expat in Pattaya is critically injured after being hit by a car while riding his three-wheeled electric scooter to buy medicine. His wife is seeking justice for her husband, claiming the other party refused to take responsibility.

According to the Thai wife, Mrs. Samrit Geisbuehler, the accident occurred on April 19th at around 9:50 AM as her husband, 73-year-old Mr. Andeks Geisbuehler, was on his way to purchase his regular medication. The incident was captured on CCTV footage, showing the car, an Isuzu Mu-X, colliding with Mr. Andeks’s scooter as he crossed an intersection on a road along a railway in the Khao Talo area, South Pattaya.

Mr. Andeks was rushed to the hospital with severe injuries and has been placed in the ICU. Mrs. Samrit revealed that she was disappointed with the alleged lack of support from the driver, who she claimed has not offered any words of consolation or financial assistance to her Swiss husband. The medical expenses have already reached over 200,000 baht, but the driver, whose name has been withheld in light of an ongoing investigation, allegedly tried to hand over the entire responsibility to the insurance company.

Furthermore, Mrs. Samrit is concerned about the lack of progress in the investigation. The Nongprue police, who are responsible for the case, have yet to determine who is at fault or arrange a meeting between the parties involved.

Fearing that the case will be overlooked, Mrs. Samrit is appealing to the media for help in seeking justice for her husband. She wanted to make sure that the driver is held accountable for their actions, and justice is served for her husband.
