Thirty-one passengers were injured, two critically, when a Nong Khai-Rayong bus overturned in Nakhon Ratchasima early Wednesday morning.

 

Police and rescue workers were summoned at 2.40am to the scene on Mitraparp Highway in Ban Don Tabaeng, Noen Sung district.

 

The blue-and-white air-conditioned bus was carrying 41 passengers. 

 

Police suspect that the driver, whose name was withheld, dozed off behind the wheel.

this is sadly becoming a daily occurrence, I'm beginning to become immune to these reports now. is there any chance a government will act to increase road safety in this country?

Dozed off as compared to fell asleep a few days ago killing the hostess. I’ll take it!

Add that to the one who lost his head.

All at about 2.30am near Korat. I am beginning to see a pattern here.

Where are the Thai ghost experts telling us the highway is haunted by the ghosts of previous bus accidents?

Another dozy driver,the bus company better start giving the drivers

a tab of yaba before they set off to keep them awake,if i was ever

to take a bus trip,i would sit behind the driver,just to make sure he

does not nod off, one thing for sure i would not fall asleep.

Are there camera's that monitors the drivers eye's that send an alarm when the driver is starting to get tired, log books  wouldn't work as the drivers could have been awake for hours before there shift and tired before they start work

You are aware who at the helm is in charge for road safety, are you?

I am more afraid riding one of these buses than flying. This is a daily occurrence.
