A thrill-seeking monk who took a friend’s souped-up sports car for a spin lost control and wrapped it around a tree.

Thapanat Chaiyasut, 31, was just one day from leaving a strict monkhood in central Thailand when he got behind the wheel of an orange Nissan Silvia S15 on Tuesday.

But no sooner had he left the temple than he clipped a tree and spun out of control, trapping himself and one passenger in the wreckage.

Thapanat, who was found still wearing orange robes, suffered a broken arm and cuts to his leg while passenger Boonyarit Puengchareon, 19, was unconscious.

Both were taken to hospital in a stable condition.

Police captain Kornvit Meedee from the Samshook district station said the monk had taken the modified car for a joyride.
