A truck driver who stopped on the highway to help a fellow trucker who had broken down paid with his life when a container lorry slammed into the back of the vehicle.

 

Thongchai police in Prachuap Khiri Khan went with foundation medics to the scene of the accident on Petchkasem southbound in Bang Saphan district just after midnight this morning.

 

Dead at the scene - and almost cut in two by the impact - was 39 year old Athorn Khlaimee. Moments earlier he had seen his friend's truck stopped on the hard shoulder and had pulled in front to offer his assistance.

 

The other vehicle had a fuel injection problem and as Athorn and the other driver Sanan Songmeuang, 53, were standing on the left side looking into the matter a Songkhla container truck plowed into the back of the parked vehicle.

 

Athorn was dragged under the wheels and killed instantly.
