A cement truck and a sedan were spotted overturned in Banglamung district, Chonburi, with both drivers blaming the road and not their driving for the accident yesterday evening, July 24th.
Luckily, both drivers escaped the accidents without any major injuries.
Police from the Huay Yai Police Station arrived at the scene after being alerted of two road accidents that occurred on Thailand Route Number 36, Rayong inbound, at around 8:00 PM. yesterday, just before a mandatory Chonburi curfew at 9:00 P.M. due to Covid-19.
At the scene, a damaged cement truck from the SJC Concrete Company with a Chonburi license plate was overturned on the side of the road. A 27-year-old driver, Pracha Thinprasong, was not reportedly injured.
Pracha told the Huay Yai police that it was raining while he was driving and the road was slippery, causing the vehicle to spin out before losing control and overturning into the median.
About 1 kilometer away, in front of a Covid-19 screening checkpoint, a black sedan with a Bangkok license plate was found crashed into a road barrier of the screening checkpoint and overturned.
Driver Chaithawat Nurin, 41, said that he was leaving from Samut Prakan to his hometown in Rayong. It was raining while he was driving, blinding his vision so that he could not notice the barrier set up by the officials and he stated the road was slippery. The car, therefore, bumped into one of the barriers before losing control and overturning. Fortunately, he was only slightly injured from the crash.
