A video clip has been released on social media this week exposing a street race between two cars on the night of October 13th on Chiang Mai-Lampang Road near Lanna Polytechnic School. While one vehicle was overtaking the other, it lost control and crashed into a traffic island.

Police were able to identify the drivers on October 15th. The drivers, Kasaem Duangcheun, 28, and Nampetch Tadang, 24, reportedly denied that they were racing but only ‘driving with a friend at high speed’. They were charged with dangerous driving and exceeding the speed limit. Kasaem is also charged with driving without a license.
