Oil Truck Accident Causes Major Fire and Power Outage in Ranong.


At approximately 22:10, 21 June, an oil truck with a trailer lost control and veered off the road near Ban Thap Chaiya, at the border of Bang Kaeo sub-district in La-un district, Ranong. The trailer overturned, causing an immediate fire due to the spilled fuel. The fire continued to burn uncontrollably, with authorities deciding to let the fuel burn out completely. The fate of the truck driver remains unknown, with authorities unable to confirm if the driver survived or was trapped in the fire.


The intense heat reduced the truck to its chassis, and a high-voltage power pole collapsed as a result of the fire. This incident caused a power outage in La-un and Kra Buri districts. Electrical Authority personnel swiftly cut off the high-voltage lines at the accident site and rerouted the power supply from Chumphon, covering the area from Ban Yai to the Kra Buri intersection.
