PATHUM THANI – At 7 am, Lieutenant Colonel Choetsak Naina of Pathum Thani police station reported that two kids had been run over by a bus, dead of course.
On Pathum Thani road, the Lieutenant and his team approached the scene of the accident to find Kittisak Charoenrat, aged 17, and Supasit Ketchit, aged 15, in unpleasant forms.
Both the victims had been students at the Military Craftsman School. A police officer summed up the carnage: ‘have you ever seen a meat lover’s pizza? You know, meat just sprinkled everywhere?”
A school bus, plate number 40-0758, was found parked in the middle lane, and a grey Honda Click, plate number 880, was jammed under the bus.
The bus driver, Mr. Somchai Thongyom, aged 44, made excuses for the horrific mess up. “I was… driving along until I reached the place where it happened. I think I noticed two motorbikes racing each other as I looked in the rear mirror and so quickly switched into the left lane.”
The bikers didn’t see another bike which was in front of the bus – and drove straight into it.
Mrs. Boonchuey Rungsaeng, aged 35, stated that while she was driving her motorbike to work, one of the two motorbikes from behind had knocked her down. She only suffered minor injuries.
The bike that ran into her lost balance and slid under the bus. The bikers were squished and torn apart.
The two kids were dragged for ten meters until they rolled out from under the bus.
The biker who had raced with the victims, was no where to be found. Police will seek further information but will most likely take the bus driver into custody.
“It wasn’t my fault,” the bus driver protested. But he wasn’t heard.
