A minivan crashed through a wall into a gas station with two occupants injured in the Pattaya area last evening. The driver was being tested for drugs and alcohol.

Around 5.30 p.m. yesterday, May 15th, Pattaya police responded to a car accident with two passengers injured at a gas station near Sukhumvit Road, Nong Prue sub-district, Bang Lamung, Chonburi.

The police found a grey Toyota Commuter minivan in a demolished condition. According to eyewitness reports, the van suddenly crashed through a wall into a gas station.

The police discovered a young Thai woman inside the vehicle with a minor head concussion and a male driver with undisclosed injuries as well (both names and ages not given).
