Chonburi –

  Hundreds of watermelons were scattered all over a roadside after a pickup truck overturned in the Ban Bueng district last night (April 27th).

The Ban Bueng Police were notified of the accident on the Number 344 Road in the Nong Irun sub-district at 11:30 P.M..

Police and emergency responders arrived at the scene to find an overturned brand new silver pickup truck on the road. No injuries were reported. Hundreds of watermelons were found scattered nearby.

The pickup truck driver, Mr. Teerapat Wongsrita, 22, told TPN media, “There was a truck that immediately crossed the road in front of my pickup truck. I tried avoid the collision but failed as the other truck driver did not stop.”

“All the watermelons which I was delivering, about 60,000 baht worth, suffered damage and will likely be unfit for sale now. I was only five kilometers from my destination when this took place and is a major revenue and profit loss for me.” Teerapat stated.

Ban Bueng Police are continuing their investigation to find the exact cause of the accident.

This wasn’t the only fruit-based incident in Chonburi this week, just a few days before:
