Two other injured people were taken to Camillian and BNH hospitals. The dead were taken to Chula.

 

Dash cam footage from the Yaris showed that the driver had plowed into Sakhon without braking then hit Theerapong and another bike.

 

Parichat, 32, said she was tired and fell asleep at the wheel. 

 

Police are gathering evidence and no charges have yet been made, reported Daily News.
