Truck Smashes Through Traffic Light In Thailand, Almost Takes Out Rider

Multiple cars were damaged and a motorbike rider barely escaped after a small out of control truck took out a traffic light while sliding across the tarmac.

The accident took place in Chiang Mai, the largest city in northern Thailand, and at this time, we can only speculate as to what kick-started this very unfortunate chain of events.

We won’t go as far as to call it a Final Destination-type of incident, but that truck must have crashed at a very high speed, judging by how fast it was actually sliding across the road. Thankfully, that woman on the bike managed to walk away.

At first, it looks as though the traffic light pole landed directly on top of her, but she must have gotten thrown off at precisely the right angle, because moments later, towards the end of the clip, you can see her emerge from behind the Isuzu pickup, running away.

The question is, what happened to whoever was behind the wheel of the truck? The pole went right through the windshield, so all we can do is hope that they were somehow spared as well.

    That’s great news the little woman didn’t get hurt, can you imaging if it was a big fat woman, that pole would have bounce back up and hit other people.

    Luckily for her, the other end of the pole landed on another vehicle to stop it going down any further. The way that front windshield ate that pole, I don’t think the guy made it.
