Chonburi —

A truck sliding down a road, suspected of not engaging a parking brake, crashed into four cars and injured one victim in Chonburi’s Banglamung district.

Sawang Boriboon emergency responders treated the victim, 25-year-old Mr. Tawatchai Srisung, who had been slightly injured by the accident. He said he was hit by a yellow truck that slid down the road adjacent to a railroad track in the Nongprue subdistrict.

Not only did the truck hit Mr. Tawatchai, it also crashed into four other vehicles, including a white Toyota pickup, a blue Ford pickup, a bronze Toyota pickup, and a white MG sedan. Finally, the truck came to a halt when it ran into a power pole and broke it in half.
