A pickup truck carrying seven people collided with a six-wheel crane truck at an intersection in Prachuap Khiri Khan province on Sunday, killing six people and leaving three injured.

 

Following the accident report at 11am, Muang Prachuap precinct inspector Pol Lt-Colonel Panasit Ritthirong led rescue workers to the scene where the Bo Nok-Dan Singkhon Road intersects Petchkasem Highway (Ban Nong Sua) in tambon Ao Noi.

 

They found the six bodies and one seriously injured pregnant woman trapped inside the wrecked Toyota Vigo pickup truck. Rescue workers had to use heavy tools to extricate them. Nearby they found the overturned crane truck whose unnamed driver and his wife were also seriously injured.

 

Initial police investigation found that the crane truck was returning after delivering metals to a check-dam construction site, located two kilometres from the scene, while the pickup was returning from a market and heading back to their hometown of Hua Hin district.

The cause of the accident was under investigation, but police suspected that the pickup driver was possibly not familiar with the road as the intersection created a blind spot for both parties and they could not see the other in time to slow down, resulting in the fatal collision.
