The Highway Authorities Department (HPD) has actually revealed remorse over an event in which its officers were implicated of overlooking a body caught inside a trashed vehicle for 12 hours in Pattaya previously today.

The household of Phattharachai Atthaporn, 68, is taking legal action against the HPD and the rescuers for their part in the oversight.

Phattharachai was driving along a freeway heading to Pattaya on Aug 9 when his automobile drifted off the roadway and crashed. When authorities and rescuers got here and approached the mangled wreckage they overlooked whether Phattharachai was still in the automobile.

It was pulled to the police headquarters with the victim still within and left there for 12 hours prior to the authorities returned and found the body.

The HPD and the rescuers came under heavy fire for their declared carelessness, triggering the department to hold a joint interview with the Highways Department to describe the matter on Friday.

HPD leader Pol Maj Gen Ekkarat Limsangkan used his remorse over the event and stated a fact-finding panel has actually been established collectively with the Highways Department to examine the oversight.

He stated officers at first did not see the chauffeur and believed he might currently have actually been required to health center. It was not up until detectives discovered no health center had actually confessed Phattharachai that they went back to the damaged vehicle and found his body inside. Phattharachai’s household suggested previously that if he had actually been required to health center immediately he may have made it through.

Dr Pakorn Wasinrat, from the Institute of Forensic Medication, stated the male suffered severe injuries which might have triggered death minutes after the crash.
