Tambon in Ayutthaya hit by blackout after truck accident

By The Nation

 

Electricity was cut off in a tambon on Saturday morning when a trailer truck crashed onto its side and knocked down nine power poles in Ayutthaya's Nakhon Luang district.

 

Police said the accident happened on the Tha Rua-West Ayutthaya road in front of Wat Bandai in Tambon Bang Rakam.

 

The accident caused a blackout to Tambon Bang Rakam and blocked the road to the temple.

 

The truck was driven by Niran Juwanna, 48, who was injured and taken to hospital.

Is that a record :biggrin:

A delivery truck in our are only managed to knock down one (some three years ago).

Was good enough for a couple of hours of blackout.

Can top that. Cement truck went over on the mountain road that leads to my Village. Took out 8 poles and power was off for 11 hours. And I live on a lake made by one of the biggest Hydro Power dams in the country

This shouldn't be news here in Ayutthaya. We can count on three blackouts a week.
