Five fans of Thai Port Football Club were killed and three others injured when their rented van crashed head-on with a water tanker in Khon Kaen’s Chumphae district on Wednesday morning.

 

Police said the accident happened on the Chumphae Si Chomphu road in Moo 6 village in Tambon Wang Hin Lad.

 

Four men died at the scene and another died after being taken to Chumphae Hospital.

 

The truck driver, Sayan Suwanchairob 41, said he was delivering water to a sugar factory in Chaiyaphum when he saw a van heading towards him in the wrong lane as it attempted to overtake a vehicle. The van then smashed head-on into his truck.

 

Narongrit Wongmao, 37, who was severely injured, told police that the group of Thai Port fans had rented the van to travel to a match in Nong Bua Lamphu.

 

The two other injured occupants were identified as Samarn Saengsud, 43, and Manas Chaonajae, 46.

I saw one yesterday just past sichompu heading to nongbua.

Black car straight into the back of a tuktuk and threw the driver about 8 metres.

Thankfully won't need to take that road for another 3 months.

Came home from this road some 30 min ago.

You see complete bubbleheads, racers, creepers.

A dangerous mix.

Going there at least three times a week.

Doesnt fit the description of a head on during overtaking by the bus

On first sight this is a mystery to me too?

And the picture is not mirrored (seen another source).

From video/pictures of other sources it looks like both drivers swerved to avoid the collision.

But unfortunately both to the same lane.

Little sympathy for cars overtaking and passing vehicles....trying to beat the oncoming car to a spot b/f going back into their lane....

 

incredibly poor judgment on speed distance and road conditions....Total disregard to solid lines and how/when safe to pass....

 

i see a double yellow solid line

An absolute tragedy for everyone involved with the club and all football fans here. Condolences to families and all fans of the club who knew them. RIP ThaiPort fans.

Well spotted.

The van driver hool has obviously overtaken in the forbidden zone before the T-junction.

It's all clearly marked with signs (junction ahead, overtaking forbidden plus the yellow lines).
