The truck driver, Mr. Kasem Chumchat, 67, who was uninjured, told local media that he was on his way to the Chanthaburi province to deliver goods and pulled over on the roadside for a late-night meal. After 30 minutes, however, Mr. Kasem heard a loud noise and darted to the back of his truck to discover that the victim had rammed into his truck and passed away.

Baan Bueng police summoned the truck driver for questioning at the police station. It was unclear whether poor road lighting or lack of vehicle lighting had played a part in the accident or not.
