Seven people killed in van-truck collision in Ubon

 

Van-Accident.jpg

 

Seven passengers in a mini-bus were killed and four others, including the driver, were seriously injured when their vehicle crashed into a six-wheel truck on a highway in Warin Chamrab district of Thailand’s north-eastern province of Ubon Ratchathani this morning (Wednesday).

 

According to eyewitness accounts, the passenger van, with a Chon Buri license plate, apparently travelling at high speed, lost control, crossed into the opposite lane and collided head-on with an oncoming six wheeler.

 

The impact of the collision completely destroyed the van, while the truck flipped onto its side. Two monks, two women and three other men travelling in the van were killed instantly.  Four others, including the driver, whose identity was not known at the time of this report, suffered serious injuries and were rushed to nearby hospitals by rescue workers.

Some years back, while on one of my monthly bike road trips on my CBR250, I was on Hwy 11, returning to Chiang Mai from Lampang, doing 120 kph. I saw a silver minivan in my mirrors gaining on me - quickly. I cut my speed to 100 kph and moved over to the left lane, which was empty. Seconds later SIX (6) minivans went FLYING past me, doing at least 140 kph, damn near bumper to bumper. Not many things I'm afraid of, but that scared the hell out of me. 

I was in Saraburi  years ago when five ,4 door pickups went past me doing the same, people laughing ,shouting .A few Km on they were head to tail concertina into the back of one another ,with lots of maimed and a least one dead I could see .

Every day I read about these government assisted manslaughter and a famous Queen song starts playing in my head!
