A family trip ended in tragedy on Monday morning when their car crashed into a tree in Prachuap Khiri Khan, killing the father and daughter and leaving the mother and son injured.

 

The family was on its way from Nakhon Phanom to Krabi when the accident occurred at 8.30am on Phetkasem Road in Bang Saphan district.

 

Weera Prachi, 40, was killed behind the wheel. The impact hurled his daughter, Jiraporn Prachi, 10, to her death.

 

Weera’s wife Orapin Odthon, 36, and son Danusorn Prachi, 13, were in the back seat and sustained injuries of unknown severity.

 

Relatives told police Weera was taking the family to visit Krabi. Police suspect he might have fallen asleep at the wheel.

Sitting in the front seat with daddy, and no seat belt to restrain her?

I have lived in quite a few countries and I have never seen so many accidents ttributed to either brakes or falling asleep at the wheel. 

 

RIP to the family for this tragedy.

In my 10 years living and driving in Thailand I can't recall seeing a child properly being restrained in the seat. Worse, I have seen children exiting the car unattended and on top of that banging the door on the car parked next to them. 

 

RIP to the victims, most of the times these can be avoided but TIT.

Now you have.
Travelling from home overnight to reach Ban Suphan Prachuap Khiri Khan which is quite well down the coast my monies on he fell asleep!

Shame he didn't stop for a break for 30 minutes to wake up a bit & feel fresh!

Damn waste of a family now shattered!

Crashed into the central ditch.....probably cut off by an impatient truck changing to the outside lane...quite common on the Hua Hin bypass death road.

Pure unsubstantiated speculation.  Stick to what you know.

Maybe he did fall asleep or maybe there was another reason. Looking at the photo with the extent of the damage I would have thought that vehicle has rolled, not just impacted a tree.

Nakhon Phanom to Krabi

A 20 hour drive - no mention if they had stopped anywhere overnight.

Indeed. My money would be on the driver having fallen asleep.

Sad story, but common on the death roads of Thailand. 

 

Paradise

 

RIP

Judging from the pictures in the link, neither the father nor the daughter were wearing seat belts. Air bags are pretty much useless without the seat belt to restrain.
