Man, 62, hurt after SUV plunges from car park in Bangkok

A 62-year-old man was injured when his SUV plunged to the street from a car park on the fourth floor of a Bangkok building on Saturday.

Police said the accident happened at 10.30 m on Soi Phai Singto off Rama IV road.

The grey Isuzu Mu-7 crashed through the wall of the car park in the Crown Property Bureau building and landed on its front.

The driver was identified as Anukul Wannasuk. He suffered from a large swelling on his head but did not have serious wounds.

He was fully conscious when he received the first aid and was sent to the Thep Tharin hospital.

Police said the man might have applied the wrong gear, causing the SUV to move forward instead of reversing from the wall.
