udon thani accident
No, I shall not discuss some solitary incident. My intention is simply to make reference to a number of such tragedies. I have chosen Udon Thani because it is the city I spent more time at than anywhere else in Thailand, and one which I grew to love.
I will kick this off by pointing you to a December 26, 2009, cautionary thread on the UdonMap forum that is titled Traffic Accidents Udon Thani. Also in the forum that same month, on the 10th: Farang in fatal traffic accident. Still another from 2009, November 21: Farang Dies in Traffic Accident. And from January 5 this very year (2012): New Year Accidents, Udon.
Some other posts on the UdonMap forum reporting on incidents that were not in Udon Thani City proper include Violent accident involving a pick-up truck (July 25, 2010); 4 people dead in Samprao accident (February 7, 2012); and Train-Car Accident (September 16, 2011).
At the Thai Visa Forum, there is this short May 2, 2007, thread: Udon Thani-road Accident,help Required.
From the UdonTalk forum a lengthy thread begun back on October 26, 2009, that had lots of contributions — 10 pages worth, leading into the current year of 2012: Driving in Udon Thani – Let us know about your experiences.
I am doing an edit to this post on March 22, 2012, by the way. Thus this next item — a news article from a week ago titled Air Force staff sergeant dies after head injury. It says he was deployed to Udon Thani, but the piece does not specify that it was in that city that his misadventure took place.
I located an old aviation accident report (December 7, 1987) concerning the airport: A Hawker Siddeley HS-748-243 Srs. 2A plane, registered HS-THH, was damaged beyond repair in a landing accident at Udon Thani Airport (UTH), Thailand. All survived. It is from the Aviation Safety Network. Years earlier — June 27, 1977, to be exact — another non-fatality incident involving a Thai Air Force craft here.
Here is a news article claiming that Udon Thani was one of several provinces that did not register any traffic deaths over the past New Year period: Road accident death toll hits 335 on last day of New Year ‘high risk travel week’. A similar report is at The Nation. I believe a forum member in one of the posts above disputed that possibility.
There are some dreadfully graphic views of various accidents that were surely fatal in a video posted back on September 7, 2011, on the French blog Le blog d’Alain à Udon Thani. As well, a couple of less-serious-looking photos posted earlier this month of March: La photo du jour à Udon Thani……l’accident du jour !
To close, here are a few other Udon Thani articles and reports, although not necessarily about accidents:
The leader of the red shirts in Udon Thani came out of a meeting of key leaders in 20 northeastern provinces in Khon Kaen on Monday, saying they planned to bring back their political idol to Thailand across the Thai-Lao …
