This horrific footage captures the moment a passerby stopper to help a car that crashed when another vehicle ploughs into them – killing a woman.
The car was pulled over at the side of the road in Chonburi province, Thailand, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Passerby Noppadon Kicwatr, 48, had pulled over to help the stranded driver and passengers but moments later an out-of-control car ploughs into the back of them – sending bodies flying into the air.
Noppadon leapt out of the way of the wreckage and picked himself up to carry on with the rescue by driving people to hospital.
One woman was killed and three more were seriously injured in the horror smash which was captured on mobile phone footage.
Businessman Noppadon said: ‘’I saw the two cars had a problem at the side of the road and stopped to help.
‘’There were only small injuries at first but then another one hit, it crashed into them and made it much worse.
‘’It was very scary to be next to. I was very close to being hit myself. It was so sad for the person who died and the injured people. One woman died.
‘’The road was being fixed at the time and it was very dark. So for the drivers it was hard to see what was happening.’’
Noppadon carried several of the victims in his car and drove them to hospital. The woman, who has not been named, was later pronounced dead.
A volunteer rescue worker from the Ruamkatanyu Foundation said there were work roadworks and barriers at the time which may have made the layout more confusing.
A spokesman said: ‘’The traffic was split in two lanes while construction work was taking place. Someone who doesn’t know this route may not know how to drive along here properly.
‘’There was also poor lighting which could also have made it more difficult for drivers.’’
