Car Smashes Into Shop As Tourists Buy Water

CCTV footage capturing the moment a drunk driver smashed into a shop in Phuket as two tourists stood at the counter buying bottles of water has gone viral on Thai social media.

The vehicle was being driven by a Chinese tourist when it lost control on the road outside the grocery store last Wednesday morning.

CCTV footage shows how the couple were at the front of the queue paying for a pack of six bottles of water and two cans of fizzy drinks when the silver Toyota Innova ploughed through the glass shopfront.

The two tourists and one more customer appeared to be knocked to the ground and pinned between the car’s bumper and a row of shelves.

A female passenger was then seen emerging from the vehicle to check how much damage it had suffered.

The three injured shoppers were taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries, none of which was serious. Officers later arrived at the scene.

Police corporal Phichit Natthachai from the Kamala district police station in Phuket said they found several empty beer cans in the car.

He added: ”The tourists were injured but not seriously. There was also a Thai man standing next to them in the shop who was also injured.

”The driver was arrested on suspicion of causing an accident due to driving while drunk and was later charged.

”He is a Chinese tourist. The cost of the damage to the shop and the medical costs of the innocent injured people will be settled with the insurance.”
