Sanook reported that traffic on the Cha Am to Pranburi bypass came to a standstill for half an hour yesterday afternoon after a ten wheel truck carrying wood plowed into cars and trucks waiting at the Bang Chang Thaeng Krajat intersection lights. 

 

Parinya, 42, driving was with six relatives in a Toyota that was crushed. All were injured and taken to Cha Am and Hua Hin hospitals. The family were on their way back to Bangkok.

 

Rattanapong, the 32 year old driver of the ten wheeler, had to be cut free in a half hour operation. He survived and is now out of danger.

 

An 18 wheel truck trailer, a six wheel truck and a Honda car were also damaged. 

 

Sanook said it is thought that Rattanapong had a "lap nai" experience - a microsleep. 

 

He will face charges of negligent driving.
