Khu Sakorn Linjan, 42, a food vendor, said: “I was selling food when the car seemed to lose control at high speed and collided with a row of food carts. The driver was completely drunk and could barely walk or talk. Who gets drunk here at 11 am? I was very lucky that I and the other food cart sellers managed to jump out in time and avoid injuries other than a few minor scratches. Our food carts have gone to the Philistines.
