Car slams at Erawan Shrine; injures six

While browsing posts from my Facebook feeds, a video post that garnered couple of comments caught my interest.

The video shows a car crashing into the fence of Erawan Shrine on Friday night. Yes, it happened just an hour ago at the time of writing. 

Bangkok Post reported there were at least six people who were injured.

The report also added that the "sedan lost control, hit the fence and came to a stop inside the shrine compound at the Ratchaprasong intersection in central Bangkok."

"It was an accident," Lumpini police commander Pornchai Chalodet told AFP of the crash. 

"A lady had epilepsy while driving and couldn't control the car, he added.

I wish those who were injured will recover soon enough. It is indeed unfortunate.
