Si Racha –
Three teachers from Samut Prakan have sustained only minor injuries after their sedan fell from a hill while they were heading to a temple in the Si Racha district Thursday afternoon (October 21st).
Emergency responders were notified of the accident at 1:00 P.M. on Phra Kru Hill in the Surasak sub-district.
First response teams arrived at the scene to find the overturned sedan seven meters down from the hill off the road. Three people inside the sedan had luckily sustained only minor injuries. All three were taken to a local hospital for a check-up.
The driver, Ms. Rao, 45, a teacher in Samut Prakan, told the local Thai media, “We were going to a temple over this holiday weekend, the Khao Phra Kru Temple, as part of a teachers field trip. ”
“A total of ten teachers from the same school were on this group religious trip. There were five people in my car. We found that the hill was very steep and we had difficulty climbing it overall.” Ms. Rao continued.
“Two teachers decided to get out of the car to lower the weight to attempt to help the car climb the hill. However, it backfired somehow and we had a brake failure, causing us to go backwards off the side of the hill. Luckily, we were not seriously injured.” Ms. Rao stated.
At this time, Si Racha police stated no charges would likely be placed in the incident.
