Prachinburi –

Fifteen Thai students have sustained injuries after a minivan crashed into a power pole in Prachinburi.

Emergency responders were notified of the accident on Thursday (May 18th) on the Prachinburi – Prachantakam Road in Nonhom, Mueang Prachinburi.

They arrived at the scene to find the damaged minivan on the side of the road with a broken power pole nearby. Fifteen students had sustained injuries and they were taken to nearby hospitals. The names of the injured students were withheld due to their age.

The minivan driver, identified only as Mr. Teerapong, 34, said that at a curve there was a vehicle that immediately stopped in front of his minivan.

He tried to avoid the collision before crashing into the power pole. However, the Mueang Prachinburi Police are continuing their investigation for further legal action.
