The victim was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

Mr. Aram Minpart, 30, a witness who was driving a car behind the victim told rescue workers with the Sawang Het rescue team, “The pickup truck driver was driving at high speed in heavy rain.”

“The pickup truck driver lost control before crashing into a power pole on the side of the road, spinning several times and landing on the central reservation. The impact threw the driver from the vehicle into a nearby ditch.” Aram told rescue workers.

Law enforcement stated to the associated local press that the witness statements seemed to confirm the events on the ground and continue to work to identify the victim.
