He told Mueang Chonburi police, “I was overtaking another vehicle from the left side.”

“I heard a loud noise which I originally thought was my truck’s tire exploding.”

“I stopped the truck and found that it was a minivan that crashed into the rear of my truck at high speed.” Sutin concluded.

Mueang Chonburi police are continuing their investigation to find the exact cause of accident for potential legal action. They have not yet stated if they believe the truck was at fault.
