BANGKOK: Court orders girl, family to pay Bt30m

Relatives of car crash victims not satisfied as amount is just a third of the Bt100 million they have been seeking

THE Civil Court yesterday ordered the girl, who is now 21, and her parents to pay Bt26.88 million in damages for her reckless driving, which resulted in a fatal crash on a Bangkok expressway on December 27, 2010 that killed nine people and injured 19 others. The victims’ relatives – who have been demanding more than Bt100 million in compensation – said they would appeal for a better payoff.

The sentence was read yesterday in the presence of Prae (not her real name), her parents and the relatives of the nine deceased and 19 injured persons. Prae, then 16, was driving her Honda Civic sedan recklessly and crashed into a public transport van, which fell off the elevated Don Muang tollway, resulting in the deaths, injuries and property damage.
