Locals in Kamphaengphet were in for a shock yesterday when a parked pick-up started moving in front of a local hospital.
It was on fire and security rushed to save the occupant by smashing the windows as it came to a halt on the other side of the road.
Local trader Phothong Koktrakoon, 62, said: “There was a big bang. Then it started to move. It turned and crossed the road. It was on fire.
“Security came and smashed all the windows to get the driver out – but there was no one inside.
“It put the hairs on the back of my neck up, I can tell you!”.
Khamphengphet hospital security guard Tawatchai Phankhaetkit told Thai Rath that he had seen the vehicle move and got a fire extinguisher and smashed the windows.
He confirmed the pick-up had moved all by itself across the road.
The startled wife of the owner of the pick-up said her husband had gone into the hospital to have his teeth done. She had no idea what happened.
Police started an investigation as locals peered in the engine compartment to gain some clues.
But the only big surprise on this occasion was that Thai Rath did not report that people were scrabbling to buy lottery tickets with the pick-up’s number, 3222.
They just noted that there was rain and lightning in the area at the time of the incident.
