Officer Ordered to Pay Compensation in Fatal Hit-and-Run

In a court ruling issued just yesterday, a somber verdict has been reached, decreeing that a 23-year-old police officer is now legally bound to pay a staggering sum of 27.3 million baht in compensation to the grieving parents of a dedicated doctor tragically killed in a heart-wrenching hit-and-run incident that transpired back in 2022.

The heartrending incident unfolded amidst the bustling streets, where the young officer, Norawich Buadok, was careening through traffic at an alarmingly high speed, clocking in between 108 and 128 kilometers per hour astride his powerful Ducati Monster motorcycle. It was during this reckless escapade that fate would intersect with tragedy, as he collided with the unsuspecting figure of 33-year-old Dr. Waraluck Supawatjariyakul at a pedestrian crossing nestled within the confines of Ratchathewi district.

At the precise moment of impact, Norawich was serving as a member of the esteemed Protection and Crowd Control Division within the Metropolitan Police Bureau. His journey, momentarily halted as he retrieved a police document, swiftly resumed as he deftly navigated his vehicle past other commuters, a mere 30 meters preceding the pivotal pedestrian crossing.

Tragically, the collision proved cataclysmic for Dr. Waraluck, an esteemed ophthalmologist whose life was brutally cut short in front of the Bhumirajanagarindra Kidney Institute Hospital. Despite the severity of the situation, Norawich, in a callous act, elected to shirk responsibility, neglecting to render any aid or assistance to the gravely injured Dr. Waraluck. Sadly, within a mere hour following the collision, the esteemed doctor succumbed to her injuries, leaving behind a trail of grief and mourning that reverberated throughout her community and beyond.

With the court’s pronouncement of this substantial compensation, awarded to assuage the unimaginable grief suffered by the parents of the deceased, a poignant reminder is cast upon the gravity of the officer’s actions and the profound loss inflicted upon the victim’s family. This ruling serves as a poignant testament to the vital importance of accountability and responsibility, particularly in the aftermath of such senseless and wholly preventable tragedies.
