The driver of a trailer truck was killed when his vehicle flipped over on a downhill road in Prachin Buri province and caught fire early on Thursday, police said.

The truck blocked two lanes of highway No 304, causing long lines of vehicles from 5.15am before officials could clear one lane for traffic at 8am.

 

The driver, whose charred body was found in the truck after the fire was put out, is yet to be identified.

 

The accident happened between kilometre markers 210 and 211 in Tambon Bupram in Na Di district.

Na Di district chief Noppadol Ngamlua said witnesses saw the truck, which was loaded with tapioca powder, running fast down the mountain. The truck driver apparently lost control and swerved the vehicle to the left before it overturned.

 

Officials had to use a tractor to clear the tapioca powder bags from one lane of the road before vehicles could pass through the accident scene.

Charred is a very strange word to use, creates awful images of an extremely unpleasant demise. 

Being trapped in a burning vehicle is not very pleasant for the rescue workers to have to deal with it either

RIP guy

It's a sad day for his family, RIP etc, but, he never took any others with him in this crash and had he been thrown out of the truck and killed, he would have ended up as charred ashes at the Wat funeral BBQ anyway.  Downhill with tons of tapioca behind him, either driver, gear or brake failure?

I  think being burned alive is  classed as the most painful way to die assuming suffocation doesn't get you first.
