This is the moment a woman was left with an eyeliner pencil lodged in her eye after the taxi she was travelling in slammed into a truck while she was putting on her make-up.

The passenger, in her 20s, was sitting in the back of the cab in a slow-moving traffic jam in Bangkok, Thailand, and applying eyeliner on the way to see her friends.

But the cab driver then crashed into a pick-up truck in front – jolting the woman forward.

With the pencil still in her hand, she hit the seat in front, accidentally thrusting the pencil into her face. 

Incredibly, the stick missed the vital parts of her left eye and her sight will be unaffected, according to medics who treated her.

Paramedic Thanabodee Sabbodi said while the crash was minor the 'freak accident' had caused half of the pencil to plunge into the eye socket of the young woman, who has not been identified. 

He said: 'The crash happened at 5.20pm in Din Daeng area of Bangkok while the lady was putting on make-up on her way out for the evening. 

'We received a call and there was one injured female with an eyebrow pencil inserted into her left eye.

The girl was still conscious and taken to the Rajavithi Hospital where medics removed the pencil without any lasting injuries. 

Thanabodee added: 'The rescue team and the doctors did a great job to help the victim. 

'This should be a warning to women who do their make-up while cars are still running because accidents can always happen. 

'This was a strange accident and unexpected but nobody can predict these incidents. We have to be prepared.'
