It was one of those ubiquitous vans that transport people between Bangkok and Pattaya. Bangkok is the most common port of entry for foreigners looking for overpriced, underperforming Asian pussy, but Pattaya is the ultimate destination (except from gay foreigners who head for Phuket). So demand for convenient Bangkok to Pattaya and vice versa transportation is quite high, especially between airport in Bangkok and the whore city. These vans specialize in transportation of soon to be dead by committing suicides men from abroad.
The accident happened on February 11, 2013 at around 10:30pm. The van struck a pedestrian as he was crossing Sukhumvit Road, the highway that connects Pattaya with Bangkok. 28 year old Thai man died with broken limbs and cracked skull. The driver of the van said the road was dark and he did not see the pedestrian entering the road.
I guess there’s some level of complacency in the fact that the van driver did not pull a hit and run on the scene. But then again, that wouldn’t have been easy with the van full of people so he didn’t really gave a choice.
