Pakhawat, 36, had been having gear problems and while his wife was in the toilets he had a look to see if he could identify the problem. 

He left his Mitsubishi Pajero in “Park” but with the engine still running. 

However, the car started moving forward and crushed his ribs and caused breathing problems. 

The vehicle went over a concrete barrier and ended up by a walkway outside the lavatories.

His wife came out to find her husband screaming in agony. 

The police and a rescue foundation were called and Pakhawat was taken to hospital after being given first aid at the scene. 

Police found that the indicator on the speedometer dial showed that the car was in “Drive” even though the gear stick was in “P”.

They warned people without technical knowledge not to trust their cars. 

The incident happened at a PTT station on Route 331 in Ban Bung. 

The victim’s wife said that they were on their way back to Nakhon Pathom from a visit to Rayong when her husband noted the seven year old Pajero was experiencing gear problems.
