A father has spoken to the media after his nine year old daughter was run over by a motor cyclist on a zebra crossing outside her school in downtown Chiang Mai. 

 

"Nong Nine" was crossing the road and the motorcycle fled the scene. She suffered a broken ankle and has to wear plaster for two weeks. 

 

Father Ong-art, 34, warned people about the lack of safety of zebra crossings even outside schools. He called for the hit and run driver to own up and take responsibility.

 

This was outside a well known school on the Charoen Prathet Road around midday. Police were informed.

 

The father said that CCTV cameras should be installed to catch people who flout the law in this manner. 

 

Sanook reporters went to the scene and found a push button crossing - but very few motorists bothering to stop.
