The driver of a trailer truck and his female passenger were heard screaming for help when their vehicle burst into flames after hitting the rear of a 10-wheel truck in Pathum Thani early Friday, police said. Both were killed along with some 1,000 chickens being transported on the 10-wheel truck.

 

Pol Lt Col Somboon Khobkhokkruad, an inspector of the Klong Ha police station, was alerted at 3.10am of the accident on the Thanya Buri-Wang Noi road at an intersection in Moo 5 village of Pathum Thani’s Klong Luang district.

 

Fire fighters took about an hour to put out the blaze that engulfed the front of the trailer truck and the back of the 10-wheel truck.

 

The charred bodies of a male driver and his female passenger were discovered when the fire was finally extinguished.

 

The impact of the crash caused the 10-wheel truck to hit and damage another trailer truck stopped at the red light ahead of it.

 

Siripong Malimart, 52, the driver of the t10-wheel truck, told police that he was transporting some 3,000 chickens from Chaiyaphum to Chon Buri’s Si Racha district and that he had stopped at the red light when the accident occurred.

 

He said he turned the emergency lights on and stepped on the brake now and then so that vehicles behind him could see the brake lights. He said he did not understand why the trailer truck hit the rear of his truck apparently at full speed.

 

He heard people in the truck screaming for help but the fire broke out and engulfed the front the truck so fast that he was unable to help. 

 

Police suspect that the trailer truck driver dozed off at the wheel.

     Oh dear, not another case of dozing off to sleep, The answer may be some sort of curfew where by drivers not allowed on roads at various times of the day or night, maybe a little drastic idea, but somethings got to be done, its all too common.

Many countries in Europe have a curfew for trucks around or during the weekend. Also several countries have a curfew for trucks during rush hours.

Log books, rest periods every two hours, no speed ( drugs), 

Enforcement of mandatory driving rules for length of time behind wheel, meal breaks etc

might have to awaiten the autopsy results... to confirm/not the 2 were actually still alive from the initial crumpled impact!

 

 - the no doubt 'loud' sqwarking of the initially surviving 1000s of chickens versus 2 humans squashed in a sardine can inbetween the bulk of two 10wheelers rammed into each other, like two locomotives

If you are concentrating and paying attention while driving, as normal people do, then you don't fall asleep.

they dont even need to fall asleep as the scope of attention and spacial-object awareness-focus can simply be absent.

I was wondering how the accident could have killed so many "fluffy" chickens, but the fire explains it.
