Daily News reported on the death of a mother and her son who were wedding organizers on their way back home to Suphanburi in central Thailand after a wedding event in Kanchanaburi.

 

Sa Kaeo police and rescue services were called to the Ban Sa Kaeo Road.

 

Dead in a Mitsubishi pick-up were Bunras, 59, and her son Jirathorn aged 40.

 

The vehicle had hit a total of three large trees.

 

The driver Sumeth, 34, survived and was taken to a hospital.

 

He said that they had been to a pre-wedding event in Laokhwan district of Kanchanaburi and were on their way back to Ban Pho in Muang Suphan. 

 

He said that when he tried to overtake he lost control of the vehicle due to the large amount of heavy equipment in the back. 

 

A picture on the Daily News site appeared to show what looked like stage suports, notes ASEAN NOW.

 

Investigations continue.

RIP.  And the driver like so many have no clue how to drive safely, especially in unusual circumstances like loads.  Typically it's speed speed speed and then losing control of the vehicle.

The excuses continue because no one is going to tell them the truth these comments should be translated to Thai sure the true hurts but it could save lives.  Instead their backs are padded sorry no accountability or take responsibility. Testing and training is to get them on the road as quick as possible so they can kill themselves.?

Memory of a gold fish, back behind the wheel tomorrow doing exactly the same thing - not his fault, it was the car in front going too slow, the load or trees being in the way.

Just saw some idiot off the road in the mountains yesterday. 100% their fault every time so why should any of us care? The story should be how lucky it was that some innocent person wasn't killed instead.

Passed 3 where it was apparent they had spun out on wet road on a downhill.
