Truck Topples Over While Being Chased By Police

A truck toppled over after trying to take a sharp bend while being chased by police after it sped through a checkpoint in Bangkok last Monday afternoon.

Officers ordered the truck to stop but it drove away, sparking a chase with several motorcycle outriders.

As the driver came down a bridge the driver tried to negotiate a sharp bend to the left, however, the truck’s suspension could not handle the cornering and it toppled over, landing on its side.

Officers surrounded the vehicle and dragged out the driver.

Police said the trucker, Duen Maratcha, 37, was arrested at the scene after confessing he had recently taken two amphetamine pills to ”stay awake” on the road.

Local media reported cops also allegedly found opium leaves in the truck and the trucker was taken into custody.

Passing motorist Nattapol Phruekngern said the chase lasted for around three miles before the truck crashed.

Nattapol said he followed the pursuit and filmed it because he wanted to help the officers catch the driver.

He said: “I followed them because I thought I could assist the police with arresting the suspicious driver. It was hard to believe that he tried to run away from the police.”
