The damaged minivan was found on the side of the road. The driver, who was not immediately identified, was stuck inside the minivan. Rescue workers used a jaw of life to free him out. He was rushed to a local hospital for medical assistance with what was described as moderate injuries.

Mr. Saksit told police that he was driving normally in the left lane when the accident took place. The minivan spun out of control just behind him and then collided into him. Mr. Saksit said the exact reason the driver of the other vehicle lost control was unclear.

Banglamung police are checking CCTV nearby to find the exact cause of the accident.
