Bang Poo police and Poh Teck Tung and Rom Sai Samut Prakan rescue services were alerted at 7 pm that two trucks had collided on Tamru Khlokao Road in the direction of Tamru.

 

At the two lane road they found a four wheel truck and a six wheeler that had overturned crushing a Yamaha motorcycle rider.

 

The motorcycle passenger Sunisa, 22, was taken to Sikharin Hospital.

 

A large crane was needed to lift the six-wheeler and underneath were the pitiful remains of Anucha, 23 who had been crushed to death.

 

Narong, 25, the driver of the four wheeler was beside his vehicle in a state of shock.

 

Somsak, 34, the six wheel driver described how the two trucks had collided as the the other truck tried to overtake but had to abort the movement due to an oncoming motorcycle. 

 

The person who died was coming up behind him and could not brake in time as his vehicle toppled over.

 

People at the scene told Thai Rath that the victim was a dental assistant who had just finished work and was taking his girlfriend to dinner at Petch Aree market.

 

Police are interviewing both drivers to get to the bottom of what happened.

Lack of driving skills one would assume.

Tragic tale - yes. But what bothers me daily from my experiences on the road is that 99% of Thai's just simply fail to react to any kind of potential danger until it is way too late! So many tragedies could be avoided here if people simply drive with just the slightest caution.

sad -- hope truck driver is charged with manslaughter at least , thai driving standards !!!  1/10 

How could he be charged with the manslaughter of a motorcyclist who was coming up behind him?
