^ doubt it... Even 'normal' decent sized cars cost over 1,000,000 Baht. Not sure you can get even the 'cheaper' Ferrari's for 100,000$
^i think we're getting baht and USD mixed up. I'm thinking the car in the photo that he wrecked cost 100,000USD
It seems to me 1 millionUSD would buy an Indy Racer .
If the family actually paid the taxes the car would cost over 30 million Baht, $1 million U.S.
On Thursday I was discussing justice post in Roman Europe with my M3 history class. I brought up this case and asked the kids what would happen to the driver. They said nothing will happen to the driver. I asked why not and they said the driver is very rich so he will not have to go to jail. Okay, I knew this would be the response so no surprises there. I asked them what they thought should happen to the driver, blank stares. It was unthinkable for them to imagine any scenario other than nothing will happen.

Red Bull heir may have taken cocaine
September 17, 2012 5:51 pm
The doctor who conducted blood tests suggesting that Red Bull heir Vorayuth Yoovidhya might have used cocaine will be summoned for questioning Tuesday.
Vorayuth is believed to be behind the September 3 hit-and-run accident that killed Thong Lor policeman Pol Snr Sgt-Major Wichian Klanprasert.
Explaining that police had yet to receive a detailed report from the Office of Forensic Science, Thong Lor police station's deputy chief Akkharawin Sukhonthawit said Monday that they expected the doctor to provide details on the sort of narcotic substance found. He said that though traces of a narcotic were found in the suspect's blood, it does not necessarily mean he had taken drugs because some medicines can affect test results.

Vorayuth cocaine rumours dismissed
Published: 18/09/2012 at 01:46 AM
National police spokesman Piya Uthayo has dismissed media reports that cocaine has been detected in the blood of Red Bull heir and hit-and-run suspect Vorayuth Yoovidhya.
The physical examination of Mr Vorayuth, who was charged with hit-and-run and drink-driving in a Sept 3 incident which killed Pol Snr Sgt Maj Wichian Klanprasert, is yet to be completed, Pol Maj Gen Piya said.
Any information about the test results of the suspect, who is a grandson of Chaleo Yoovidhya, the late founder of the Red Bull energy drink empire, would be confidential. He urged the media to exercise caution in reporting the story.
Mr Vorayuth admitted hitting Pol Snr Sgt Maj Wichian with his Ferrari, killing the patrol policeman in the early-hours incident on Sukhumvit Soi 47 in Bangkok.
After the incident, Mr Vorayuth's family requested that his blood be tested at a private hospital.
The blood was also sent to the state-run Ramathibodi Hospital for further laboratory examination, said Pol Lt Co Wiradol Thapthimdee, an investigator of Thong Lor Police Station responsible for the case.
High blood alcohol levels were confirmed but the type of other substances also detected in the test were not clearly indicated, he said.
"The blood test results came in medical terms in a foreign language, so they cannot be used as evidence yet," he said.
Meanwhile, Pol Lt Col Pannapon Nammuang, who allegedly attempted to make the Yoovidhya family's domestic caretaker a scapegoat in the case, had reported himself to the panel conducting a disciplinary probe against him.
Pol Lt Col Pannapon met the panel last Friday , one day after the day he was required to show up. He said he did not show up on the date requested because he did not want to face the press.
Pol Col Sunthorn, who heads the panel, said Pol Lt Col Pannapon would be questioned later before a conclusion is made whether he will be dismissed from duty.
Nothing will happen.
This is it... The apocalypse.
...not exactly: the officer's family will be given a piddling amount while the offender will promise to do a stint as a monk...certain police officers and judicial employees will look forward to a lifetime supply of Red Bull...
bunch of cynics
...on the other hand, the miscreant could be found guilty of manslaughter within a relatively speedy few weeks and sentenced to 3 months in jail (suspended), a B539 fine, and a promotion at Red Bull...maybe to Customer Relations Manager...
