Broken bus drives diagonally on Thai motorway


A bus' rear wheels skidded diagonally along a motorway taking up the whole road in Udon Thani, northeastern Thailand.

Inside the car behind the bus was Auttakarn Panomsing, 30, who was driving to work when he spotted the coach appearing to slide dangerously on August 21.

Bus company director Panan Tanadka ordered mechanics to check the bus and question its driver, who said the wheel axle had broken but he kept on driving as its chassis was still functional.
