A woman pharmacist was burned to death when her car crashed head-on into another car whose driver was also killed on a narrow road in Roi Et province on Friday evening.
 

Another vehicle tried to avoid the wreckage but ended up hitting a car in the opposite lane, which was in turn hit on the rear, resulting in three people being injured.

 

Police said the accident happened at 6.30pm on a main road in Arj Samart district that links to Muang district.

 

Police said Nathomnavaporn Kulmongkolsawat, 27, a pharmacist at Maha Chanachai district hospital in Yasothon, was killed in the fire that broke out and engulfed her car after the crash.

 

Witnesses said they tried to rescue her but the fire spread quickly and prevented them from reaching her.

 

Fire-fighters took about 20 minutes to put out the blaze after which her charred body was removed.

 

The driver of another car, Thongchai Kongsuwan, 56, was killed behind his wheel.

 

Police said the drivers of three other vehicles were rushed to the Arj Samart and Roi Et hospitals.

 

Police said a part of the road was narrow and dark.

A LPG vehicle maybe??

I don't understand the logic of having small cars converted to gas... so many cars here go up in flames after an accident I can only think that gas is the reason.

Pure speculation on your part... maybe gas yes but... diesel, petrol all cause fires when an accident has ruptured the fuel system inside the engine bay which then ignites when in contact with the hot engine !!

Tests carried out on LGP fueled vehicles concluded that they were actually safer than their petrol/gasoline counterparts.

 

That's because the gas container, being pressurized, is much stronger than a standard fuel tank, so is less likely to rupture and there are a number of safety valves installed designed to cut off supply in an accident.

 

Diesel is reckoned to be the safest due to its high flashpoint.
