Si Racha –

A young woman aged about 15-years-old has been pronounced dead while two people have sustained serious injuries including a 10-year-old girl after two trailer trucks crashed in the Si Racha district at midday yesterday (August 24th). One of the drivers reportedly vanished from the scene of the accident.

The Si Racha Police was notified of the accident at noon on the Motorway Seven Road Section 3 in the Thung Sukhala sub-district. Rescue workers arrived at the scene to find two damaged trailer trucks.

Two injured people were found under a severely damaged trailer truck that were the female driver Mrs. Monruethai Namjan, 27, and a 10-year-old girl passenger. They were taken to a local hospital for urgent medical assistance.

Near the back of the severely damaged trailer truck, Si Racha law enforcement found the body of a female passenger aged around 15 years old.

No one was found inside the second trailer truck but police found the ID card of Mr. Anucha Wanthakun, 31, from Roi-Et inside the vehicle. It was unclear if he had fled the scene or had gone for assistance. There were no witnesses present at the accident and it was unclear what exactly had happened, however, based on the damage done to one of the vehicles Si Racha police believe that speed had been a factor.

Police are checking CCTV footage and continuing their investigation to find Mr. Wanthakun.
