The 16 year old girl blamed for the fatal tollway accident on Monday has become so stressed out that she asked why she did not die, her mother said yesterday.
“Why don’t they take my life? Why don’t I just die?” the girl was quoted as saying.
The girl is being treated for injuries at an unspecified hospital. It was the third hospital she went to for treatment after angry threats prompted her family to move her twice to a new medical facility.
“There was an intrusion into her room at a hospital,” the mother, Laddawan Thephassadin na Ayutthaya, told the “Chao Kao Khon Kon Kao Chao” TV programme.
The Thephassadin na Ayutthaya family yesterday issued a statement expressing deep condolences over the people killed and injured in the accident.
The accident, which took place after a van brushed the girl’s Civic car, killed nine people and injured six others.
Many people were enraged after seeing the 16 year old girl post her comments on a social networking site right after the accident.
