A Bank worker was lucky to escape with her life following a road crash on the Sukhumvit Road in the Na-Jomtien area on Friday Afternoon. Khun Gitayar aged 32 works for the Tanachart Bank branch at Central Festival Pattaya Beach and was driving to meet a customer when she lost concentration for a split-second and left the main carriageway. Her car hit a pylon located in the central reservation which caused a fire. A passer-by was able to rescue the unconscious woman from the burning car just-in-time. Khun Gitayar suffered facial injuries and suspected internal injuries and was taken to Hospital. Police commended the actions of Khun Rungrort aged 44, who rescued the woman from certain death.

    A very lucky young woman. Next time, maybe she shouldn’t lead with her face.

    Lucky lady, glad to know Khun Gitayar is ok. Take a lesson from this Khun Gitayar and remember to wear your seatbelt EVERY time.
    @gwats … wise up you insensitive b*st*rd, don’t you know Mr Smartarse, your head (proportionally) is the heaviest part of your body and is always unrestrained in an accident, but purely by the law of physics, it does get propelled forward in the event of any (head on) accident and even if you’re restrained by a seatbelt, your head can still hit the steering wheel …… and yes I do know you have been a professional driver for a million years and know everything there is to know about driving and all the related topics!

  • gwats

    Hey Rob,
    Thanks for acknowledging my 24 years of professional driving experience, so I’ll share a piece of advice with you….. This accident is the result of ‘distracted’ driving, If you are tired, need to sleep badly, are hungry, need to relieve yourself, angry, or yakking on the phone, then DON’T get behind the wheel! ME, a B@sT*rd? When it comes to driving safe, an encouraging others to do the same? You bet your @$$ I am! I’ll take that as high praise from you. Engage your BRAIN before you put it in gear! Her face will heal up just fine, and she’ll think twice before she starts her next car.

    Well, I for one wish to award Khun Rungrort the “Observing” Good Samaritan of the Year award. This most revered award carries with it no Silver Chalice nor large award of money, but the recipient is lavished by praise from all (well maybe just one) farangs sitting on bar-stools across our fair city and the entire greater metropolitan area. Beer mugs are raised in his honor and toast are offered directly preceding a frentic quaffing of the hops and barley. A rousing hip-hip-hooray and by the time we are done posting his name shall be forgotten…or perhaps altered to Khun Rungsnort or something similarly irreverent…..and on and on it goes into the wee hours.

    Lost concentration? Trying to read a text message more like it.

  • Rob

    @gwats ….. I don’t need your piece of advice, I can read just fine and if your initial comment had been along the same lines as your second one, giving good advice on safe driving, then I would have applauded you but to simply spout off insensitive BS like that is just nasty!

  • Fritz Schtengell

    lucky lady?? what do you mean??
    look at het car…look her face…. if she was lucky she didnt had a accident but was having dinner with me . LOL

  • Jake

    @Rob…I’m going to have to go with my occasional nemesis gwats on this one. Irreverence and insensitivity I see as the essence of humor in most cases. Sensitivity on the other hand is a horse ridden until it comes up lame, mostly by the lame who don’t ride well.

  • craig

    Jake, I cannot decide if your comment is sensitive or anti-sensitive but it was good enough, cloaked in its veil of non-exactness, to pass the PON probe that has been a little testy and strict as of late.

  • gwats

    What’s wrong, Rob? Did the little tart you had your eye on all night decide to go home with someone closer to her OWN age, and now you’re taking it out on the rest of us? Have fun, Grow a thicker skin, or just shut up, I don’t care which. This is about conversation and little friendly ribbing, a subject your can learn more about on a daily basis. I give as good as I get in here.

  • Jake

    @Craig….I will always ride the horse of insensitivity because it never pulls up lame….feel free to substitute P.C. for sensitivity and don’t forget to mention my brilliance. :-)

  • Rob

    @ gwats …… I guess you’re just re-counting your own experiences ….. I don’t have my eye on any tart, any night, been here long enough to have what I need on speed dial. But getting back to the actual story, your insensitivity just shows your real character … or lack there off!

  • Gwat

    You’re in a great place if you take the time to observe what goes on around you in Pattaya.
    You’ll either conquer it, it will conquer you, or you’ll learn to relax and go with the flow. I highly recommend the third choice. I’m quite the character… ask brother Jake.

  • Rob

    @Gwat ….. yeah you’re pretty much spot on there but with regards to you being “quite the character” didn’t anyone tell you, self praise is no praise!

  • Beacon of darkness

    Very hard tone here, and very little significance to the actual incident. It takes a lot of courage and a good deal of human empathy to approach a burning vehicle and rescue an occupant. Well done Khun Rungrort
