Krabi police are currently investigating after a group of teenagers threw rocks at an ambulance in Krabi on Sunday.

The ambulance had been transferring a patient and heading to Krabi Hospital in Krabi city on Petkasem Road at around 3am when the incident occurred.

Krabi city police chief Colonel Somdet Sukkarn ordered his team to investigate the incident. There were no CCTV cameras in the area nearby that could have captured the incident, he said. 

However, police have been urgently investigating the matter in an attempt to identify a suspect.

Residences nearby have complained that there is a 3-kilometre stretch of road where cars speed, and where kids annoy locals with their noisy exhaust pipes and motorbikes. 

They claim that more than 300 teenagers race on the road after midnight, especially at weekends. 

Some even say that they have been staying at their relatives’ houses during the weekends.

Police believe the street racing and rock-throwing incident are related, Somdet said.
