A Somtam saleswoman was killed instantly while her husband was seriously injured after being involved in a collision with a passenger car early in the morning yesterday.
City police arrived at the scene at 3:00 a.m. after reporting the traffic accident. Upon arrival, a sales saleng was discovered on the road. The ingredients for the sale of Somtam were scattered all over the road.
A Thai man, the husband of the woman who died, was found in serious condition with multiple injuries and was rushed to the nearest hospital. The Somtam saleswoman, whose name was later revealed to be Supawadee Kaewlan’s, was found dead at the scene.
According to witnesses, the other party was a passenger car that rocked extremely back and forth at high speed before crashing into the somtam stall. The driver reportedly got out of the car to briefly see the injured before jumping back into their vehicle and speeding away.
Pattaya Police are gathering evidence and re-checking CCTV footage at the scene to track down the driver of the vehicle for further legal action.
