Four Russians, including a Child, were injured as their Minivan overturned following a collision with an SUV driven by an 88-year-old Frenchman on Wednesday afternoon in East Pattaya.
The crash occurred along the railroad at the junction with Soi Nonghin, just after 3pm, and involved the Minivan carrying a total of 10 Russians, who were going to the Ambassador City Hotel. A Mitsubishi Pajero, driven by Mr. Louis Antonin aged 88 from France, struck the minivan side-on at the junction, causing the van to flip onto its side.
The driver of the minivan, Khun Chonachart aged 38 who was unhurt, described how he drove through the junction and the Frenchman’s vehicle, travelling from the Sukhumvit Road towards Soi Nonghin, struck the minivan.
Police have yet to determine who was to blame for the crash and are currently questioning both drivers at this time as the injured Russians receive treatment for their non-life-threatening injuries in Hospital.
