Toll gate’s roof collapses due to heavy winds in Chonburi area

Chonburi —

A toll gate’s roof collapsed due to heavy winds in the Chonburi area, the second recent terrifying collapse in Thailand, but nobody was hurt.

The toll gate was situated on the motorway in the Nong Hong subdistrict of Phan Thong district in Chonburi. The collapse happened on Tuesday, August 2nd, reportedly while gusty winds hit.

Local media stated that nobody was injured, which was a lot more fortunate than the two victims who lost their lives in the bridge collapse in Samut Sakhon. The truck driver who was about to enter the toll gate told local media that he almost got crushed by the roof if it had fallen a little bit sooner.
