Barrier gate controller turns up to police to face recklessness charge

A state employee of the Department of Rural Roads yesterday turned himself in to Bang Kholaem police station in Bangkok to face recklessness charge after a taxi driver rammed his car into a steel barrier arm of the Krungthep bridge and was seriously injured.

The employee, Amphan Choikul, controlled the vehicle barrier gate on the bridge as the bridge was opened to allow the passage of a naval ship on the Chao Phraya river.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and was freed temporarily without bail as the injured taxi driver still could not give testimony.

However the police will send him to court for detention later after the taxi driver recovers and could give information.

He faces charge of recklessness that results in serious injury to other.
