Si Racha, Chonburi –
A female driver and her passenger have both been pronounced dead at the scene after a pickup truck carrying vegetables crashed into a trailer truck in Si Racha early this morning (June 17th).
Emergency responders were notified of the accident at 5:30 A.M. on the Nong Kwae – Amata City Road in Borwin.
The first responders from the Pure Yiang Tai Si Racha Bypass 3 rescue team and Si Racha police arrived at the scene to find a severely damaged pickup truck with vegetables scattered across the road.
Two bodies were found inside the pickup truck and were identified by Si Racha police as Ms. Uthaiwan Dangkrajang, 40, and Ms. Euwadee Sangseena, 37. It took more than one hour for first responders to move their bodies out from the pickup truck due to the level of damage to the vehicle.
The driver of the other truck involved in the accident, Mr. Somchai Kanjanadit, 39, was waiting for police at the scene and was uninjured.
Somchai told Si Racha police, “The vegetable truck, which was traveling at high speed, crashed into the back of my trailer truck while I was driving regularly along the road. I was not making any turns or doing anything unusual when the accident occurred.”
At this stage, Si Racha police believe that the vegetable truck driver might have fallen asleep at the wheel. However, they are checking CCTV footage nearby to find the exact cause of the accident.
