Ten students have sustained minor injuries after their school van crashed into a trailer truck in Ban Bueang on Thursday, March 4th, 2021.
The Klong Giw Police were notified of the accident on Road No 3138 in the Klong Giw sub-district in the late afternoon of March 4th, 2021.
Rescue workers and The Pattaya News arrived at the scene to find a grey minivan had crashed into the back of a trailer truck on the road. A second van had also collided with the first school van, although suffered only minor damage.
Ten students inside the van that had collided with the trailer truck had sustained minor injuries. They were taken to a nearby hospital for medical assistance. The school the students were traveling from was not stated to Associated Press.
The trailer truck driver, Mr. Thongchai Moonjan, told Klong Giw police, “A pickup truck had stopped on the side of the road because several items had fallen out of the back of his truck and he was collecting them.”

“The two school vans were traveling closely together and one crashed into me, with the other van crashing into the back of the first,” Thongchai concluded.
Klong Giw police are still investigating the incident and have reportedly detained the drivers of the vans to question them further about the accident and determine potential liability.
