PHUKET: -- A 15-year-old youth and his mother escaped serious injury earlier today (April 20) after the youth fell asleep while driving the motorbike, which slammed into the back of a 10-wheeled truck parked by the side of the road.

 

Police were called to the scene, in front of Wat Srisoonthorn (Wat Lipon) on Thepkrasattri Rd, at 2:30pm.

 

Thalang Police and rescue workers arrived to find a Yamaha Fino jammed under the truck.
