It was around 4.20am on Tuesday 7 September when a white Honda Fit car crashed into the wall of Soondur Munrakhun College. The impact was so severe that part of the wall collapsed. The falling blocks also damaged an aluminium door in one of the classrooms.

When the police arrived, the injured driver was still at the wheel.

They were shocked to learn that the driver was also a member of the police force. The driver smelled of alcohol, used vulgar language and could not even stand on his own two feet.
