A Phuket tour bus, pickup truck and car have been involved in a major incident in Krabi.

 

One person has died, a 7 month pregnant woman sustained serious injuries and 12 people were taken to hospital with minor injuries after the collision between a Nakhon Si Thammarat to Phuket bus, a pickup truck and a car last night.

 

Ao Nang Police in Krabi were notified of the incident at 8pm last night on Phet Kasem Road in Khao Kram, Krabi.

 

Police and emergency responders arrived to find a burning Toyota Yaris in the middle of the road. It took about 10 minute to control the fire. The pregnant driver had already escaped from the car. Nearby they found a damaged pickup truck and bus on the side of the road.

 

In total, 14 people were involved and taken to Krabi Hospital. The pickup truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The Toyota Yaris driver, who is 7 months pregnant, sustained serious injuries.

 

Witnesses told The Thaiger that the pickup truck was in the middle of the road changing lanes. The Toyota Yaris, coming from behind, collided with the back of the pickup truck.

 

The Nakhon Si Thammarat – Phuket bus, which was carrying 12 passengers, collided with the Toyota Yaris and the pickup truck. The Toyota Yaris then caught fire.

 

Police are continuing their investigation.

Fireman not wearing fire suit for their own safety. Very careless job. 

I wonder if it is a fire department controlling. No, safety anything, not even the shoes.

ALso wonder about training, as they go into the flames with direct beam and you can start spreading the fire. You come in normally with a wide ray of water, of course you need a pump big enough to deliver such.

if he did not use some sort of safety warning light or flare while in the middle of the road changing a tire or perhaps his car lights were turned off or perhaps he was stopped at a blind spot.  was dark already.  we know the other drivers may have been not driving safely either

Why are you trying to compare the most dangerous roads and drivers in the world with the uk that have some of the safest roads in the world?
