PHUKET:-- A tour bus driver has been charged with reckless driving after he caused a four-vehicle pile-up in the southbound lane of Darasamut Underpass in front of Central Festival Phuket this morning (Sept 13).

 

The accident occurred at about 9:15am, causing massive traffic tailbacks southbound along one of the busiest roads on the island.

 

“The bus driver was driving too fast and collided into the back of a black van, which as a result hit the pickup truck in front of it,” Capt Jarat Lempan of the Wichit Police told The Phuket News today.
