Pattaya —

Early on Sunday morning, January 28th, a pickup truck collided with a water truck on Pattaya-Naklua Road, resulting in critical injuries to the pickup’s driver and passenger.

At 3:00 AM, the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation received a report of the collision and dispatched volunteer rescue personnel to the scene in Central Pattaya. Upon arrival, they found a white Isuzu D-Max pickup truck with extensive front-end damage and a 6-wheel water truck belonging to the Pattaya Environmental Office with rear-end damage.

Inside the pickup truck, rescue personnel found two trapped individuals, including 26-year-old Mr. Kittikorn Pitsuwan, the driver, and 29-year-old Ms. Wipha Sawangwong, the passenger.

Using cutting tools, rescue workers carefully extricated both victims from the mangled wreckage. Due to their critical condition, they were urgently transported to the hospital for immediate medical attention.

According to Mr. Chaipong Phurahong, 41, the driver of the water truck who was uninjured, his vehicle was operating with flashing lights activated when he heard the sound of brakes followed by the violent impact of the pickup truck colliding with the rear of his truck. He immediately exited his vehicle and discovered the injured occupants of the pickup truck before calling emergency services.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation by the Pattaya police.
