Meanwhile, the second victim, Ms. Ratchachaporn Satchapong (31), was found unconscious inside the crumpled truck. They both suffered serious injuries and were hurried to a hospital.

Pol. Lt. Col. Phu Decha from the Khao Kheow highway police station responding to the accident said that the driver may have driven at high speed before skidding and crashing into a street railing. Sri Racha was also pounded by heavy rainfall early this morning, so this might attribute to the crash, the police stated.
