The couple who were the victims of an accident involving a 15-year-old boy.
Who was driving a pick-up truck who failed to see the pair and subsequently reversed over them dragging them under the pick-up for several metres have taken to social media to talk about their lives after the accident.
They have spoken out saying that their lives are in ruins following the accident and heavily condemned the boy’s family for allowing him to be behind the wheel of the pick-up.
The two victims Wanchai Phakaew, 44, and his wife Araya, 39, were crossing the road at a market in Khao Khor, Petchabun when the pick-up reversed into them at speed dragging the couple underneath the vehicle, the accident was caught on CCTV and went viral after being posted online.
The parents of the boy are from Chiang Rai and farm strawberries in the area.
The accident resulted in a broken back for Wanchai having to have surgery following the accident that took place on August 17 and Araya broke her arm among other injuries.
The couple said they are farmers but their injuries have left them unable to work and have had to now employ others to tend to their lands.
The hospital bill for their treatment came to 100,000 baht but the insurance of the boy’s family only covered 70,000 baht of the bill meaning Wanchai had to pay for the rest himself.
Officers in the area have asked the couple to go to the police station to discuss the accident but Wanchai is yet to do this as he is still unable to walk.
Wanchai said “A 15-year-old should not be driving” in a video interview which was shared on the “Phanrekuay” page on Facebook.
The boy has been named by Tnews but Love Pattaya Thailand will not be releasing his name.
