A driver had a miraculous escape after a huge metal frame used in the construction of the new BTS Green line extension collapsed and fell 150ft, landing on the bonnet of her car.
The woman was caught in slow moving traffic on Phahonyothin Road in her Nissan March when the accident happened just before 4pm.
The huge metal frame, known as a launcher, landed only inches away from the drivers seat, wrecking the engine of the car.
An investigation has been launched by the MRTA into what safety measures were overlooked. The construction of the elevated extension of the green line is being undertaken by contractor. Italian-Thai Development.
One eyewitness said it was a ‘’miracle’’ nobody was killed.
