A pickup truck crashes down 6 floors of a hospital in Korat

In a freak accident in Nakhon Ratchasima that amazingly resulted in only 2 injuries and no deaths, a pickup truck drove through a retaining wall and plunged 6 floors. The accident happened last night in the main district on the 8th floor of a hospital parking garage.

The accident took place around 7 p.m. at Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima hospital, where the driver, according to eyewitnesses, argued with a woman before walking to his car on the 8th floor of the parking garage.

The man got into his Toyota Vigo pickup and then drove straight through a retaining wall. The wall gave way and he crashed with pickup and all from the 8th floor down six floors and landed with a thump on the 2nd floor of a parking building.

The car landed on a passageway on the 2nd floor, with chunks of concrete falling from the wall, one of which hit a person shopping on the ground floor.

Rescuers soon arrived to discover that little of the pickup truck was left and the driver was injured, although details of the severity and extent of his injuries were not released. Police are still investigating the incident.
