PHUKET: -- A runaway Phuket tour bus that was left parked and unattended after dropping off Chinese tourists at a jewellery store rolled some 80 metres before crashing into a parked pickup truck, which shunted a motorbike and then crunched into tables set up in front of a merit-making supplies shop in Chalong yesterday afternoon (April 18).

 

No injuries were reported in the incident, which occurred on the road to Wat Luang Pu Supha, Chaofa Rd Soi 69, at about 2:30pm confirmed Lt Col Kanan Somrak of the Chalong Police.

 

Bus driver Arnat Luangammart, 37, from Buriram, told officers, “I dropped off Chinese tourists at the Royal Paragon jewellery complex and parked the bus. I switched off the engine and put it in gear to prevent the bus from rolling, but I did not put chocks under the wheels because it is not steep where the bus was parked.
