77kaoded reported that Pol Capt Wiraphan Cheunchom of the Muang Lopburi police in central Thailand and Poh Teck Tung rescue services attended an accident on Pahonyothin Road near the temple of Wat Thung Singto.

 

A bus delivering dozens of workers of the Minibea company careered off the road injuring 12.

 

The bus hit a lamppost then an earth bank.

 

The injured were ferried to two local hospitals.

Slightly injured staff said that many people were sleeping at the time and were awoken by the terrible impact.

 

They also suggested that the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel - a familiar event in Thailand called "lap nai".

ASEAN NOW notes that the accident involved possibly the same company as one earlier in the week when a bus hit by a large truck overturned.

 

That was Minibea Bang Pa-In.

 

This one was Minibea Lopburi. 

 

77kaoded did not make the connection if there was one.

Maybe they should give the drivers YaBa before they take off driving,

they won't fall asleep , but will drive too fast .........😉 cannot win.

No, bad driving behavior causes accidents…so they look for excuses to avoid driver accountability 

 

And therefore nothing changes
