Neither the girl involved in the crash or her relatives attended. “There is no contact, message of apology, or even a wreath from them”
The under-aged driver of a sedan involved in a tollway crash that left nine van passengers dead will be sent to a home for girls after she acknowledges criminal offences to be filed against her on Wednesday, a senior traffic policeman said yesterday.
As a minor at 17 years of age, the girl would not be detained and therefore a request for temporary release on bail would not be needed. But she would be sent to a facility under the Department of Juvenile Observation and Protection, Pol Lt-Colonel Phithak Niyomphruek, a senior investigator at Vibhavadi Police Station in charge of the case, said yesterday.
Whether the girl’s parents would be charged with a criminal offence depended on evidence compiled during the investigation process, the officer said.
