« on: March 26, 2013, 04:34:29 PM »
KANCHANABURI - The driver of a pickup said a Buddha amulet saved him from near certain death after his truck was hit by a train at a railway crossing and dragged about 50 metres along the track early on Tuesday.

Police said the accident was reported about 6am.

When police arrived at the scene, they found Akaradet Jiwklae, 26, the pickup truck driver, being attended by the medical unit for minor injuries he sustained during the crash (see pic above).

The driver of the train told police he was heading towards Sai Yok Noi station. He saw a pick-up  about to cross the rail tracks in front of the train in Muang district.

He sounded the horn but the truck did not stop and the train hit the vehicle on the driver's side. It was dragged about 50 metres along the track before the train came to a stop.

Mr Akaradet told police that he was looking to his left side as he approached the crossing when he heard the train's blaring horn on his right side.

"By the time I saw the train, it was too late, it crashed into my pickup truck,” he said.

"I thought I was going to die, but I survived."

Mr Arkaradet escaped with only minor injuries to his neck and right leg.

"I believe it was the amulet of Lord Buddha seated on a seven headed Naga which I carry that protected me," he said.

Re: Lamborghini Crash Survivor ♦ Amulet Saved My Life

A CEO who crashed his 34 million-baht Lamborghini into several electric poles and survived without serious injury credited his luck to the amulet he was wearing.



The incident took place near Chonburi′s provincial transport hub on Sukhumvit Road. Arriving at the scene, police found a crashed Lamborghini, license plate ณ-6091, with its tires exploded, parked on the road after hitting into 2 electric poles and 2 trees.

Mr Somkiat Kruwongpaiboon, 45, was waiting for the police with minor injuries. He said he worked as a managing director at Asian Steel Bar Company.

Mr. Somkiat told police he was driving from Bangkok to attend his father′s funeral at a temple in Chonburi, which is 5 km from the accident site. He said it was raining heavily and he eventually lost the control of his car, spinning it several times before hitting roadside electric poles and trees.

He said he was wearing Great Garuda amulet, surrounded by tiny diamonds, at the time of the accident, which he believed contributed to his miraculous survival.
