73-year-old American injured by low-hanging utility cable in Pattaya

A 73-year-old American expatriate chugging through this coastal town on his motorcycle became entangled in a low-hanging utility cable and injured.

The Deputy Mayor of Nongprue District Municipality, Wanchai Sanengam, visited Mark, whose last name was not mentioned.

Wanchai told a local reporter, that Mr Mark was injured when his motorcycle became entangled in the utility cable and fell. He is now recovering, but brain X-rays are yet to be done.

“The umpteenth accident was caused by a communications company that was reckless and thought it was baked after the maintenance of the cable and had done nothing to remedy the dangerous shortcoming

Mr, Mark has already officially filed a complaint with the Pattaya Police Department against the communications company,” Wanchai said.

Mark was grateful for the deputy mayor’s visit and their attention to this incident, in the hope that it would help the utility companies be less lax in their maintenance.
