A near fatal car accident occurred along the Bang Saray Beach Road on Wednesday, when an intoxicated Thai man drove his car into an electrical pylon. Also in the car was the dead body of his girlfriend who he claims to have stabbed to death after a heated argument prior to the crash.
21st of April 2010: At approximately 00:30am on Wednesday, police Lieutenant Colonel Niphon Pomsanam (Sattahip Police Investigator) received notification from the Sawang Rodjanatham Foundation that a White Toyota Vios had collided with an electrical pylon along Bang Saray Beach Road. Lt. Col. Pomsanam immediately dispatched a team of officers to investigate the incident.
At the scene, police discovered the severely damaged remains of the vehicle, whilst the driver, Mr. Suphit Phonphaew  a chef at a local seafood restaurant, had already been sent to the Queen Sirikit Hospital suffering from severe head and neck injuries. The body of Miss Piyanat Sadsang  an insurance saleswoman was found dead in the front passenger’s seat. Miss Sadsang is believed to have died from a series of stab wounds evident on her chest substantiated by the bloody kitchen knife found in the car at the scene. The deceased’s body was sent to the Sattahip Hospital for autopsy once police investigations had been completed.
Mr. Phonphaew admitted, under interrogation, to having stabbed Miss Sadsang in a fit of intoxicated rage following an argument at Bang Saray Beach. He stated that they had been going through a rough period in their relationship, with Miss Sadsang increasingly going out with friends, leading Mr. Phonphaew to become jealous that she may be cheating on him. Mr. Phonphaew explained that he had called Miss Sadsang to the beach in order to talk things over with her, however; the discussion eventually descended into an argument leading to the stabbing. Asked where he had intended to take Miss Sadsang’s body, Mr. Phonphaew revealed that he was not sure whether she had died as a result of the stabbing and so was on his way to the hospital, before losing control of the vehicle, crashing into the electricity pylon.
Police at present speculate that the Mr. Phonphaew may have intentionally crashed into the electrical pylon due to his intoxicated state and the realisation that he had murdered his girlfriend. Medical examinations revealed that he had suffered minor brain damage and whiplash as a result of the accident.
