Cab skewered by barrier.

A cab driver was seriously injured after he tried to outrun a barrier being lowered on the Krung Thep bridge in Bangkok on Tuesday morning.

The barrier was coming down to prevent traffic crossing the bridge as it was being opened to allow a large ship in the river below to pass.

The barrier entered through a front window and skewered the cab coming out of the rear window behind the driver who was not named but was seriously hurt.

He was sent to hospital following the accident that happened in heavy rain caused by cyclone Mora that lashed much of the capital causing widespread flooding once again.

Police blamed the impatience of the taxi driver for not waiting as the barrier was lowered.
