Sri Racha —

A pickup truck crashed into a noodle stall in Sri Racha and injured three people including the driver. The driver was suspected of drunk driving.

Sri Racha police responded to a traffic accident report yesterday, July 5th, at the front of a supermarket in the Nongkham sub-district of Sri Racha district, Chonburi. They rushed to the scene along with the local rescue team.

According to local media, three people, including the driver, had been injured by a pickup truck that suddenly crashed into a noodle stall where they were eating. Two of the three injured were identified as Mr. Jirawat Phosin, 35, and Mr. Thanasit Limphothong, 32, who was the driver of a white pickup truck.

Luckily, the three injured only suffered superficial injuries. They were subsequently transferred to a local hospital.

According to eyewitnesses, the white pickup truck was travelling at high speed. The driver then tried to navigate a curve when he presumably lost control of the vehicle and rammed into a noodle stall located on the side of the road. Certain witnesses also remarked that the driver may have been intoxicated but that was speculation, notes TPN media.

Sri Racha police were investigating the scene. They said they would later summon the driver for questioning.
