The woman had been applying makeup in the back of the taxi when it collided with a pick up truck near the Din Daeng intersection at 5.20pm on Tuesday evening.
When rescue workers arrived at the scene they found almost the whole of the eye liner pencil lodged in her eye. The woman, who was still conscious had blood coming from her nose.
This morning Thai media reported that doctors had managed to safely remove the pencil and described the woman’s condition as stable. The woman was expected to make a full recovery with no lasting damage to her eye, doctors said.
