This BBC article looks at the incident that occurred on Sukhumvit Road last year, in which a 20-year-old intentionally rammed his Mercedes into a crowd of people waiting for the bus, killing one and injuring others. The driver, named Kanpitak Pachimsawas, was originally charged with murder. However, his case has been suspended until November, and many believe that because of his rich family's connections, he will never actually be sentenced. Author Jonathan Head said the case has "turned into one about class differences, about the perceived arrogance of Thailand's rich, towards the poor."
