Thirteen students and a female driver were injured after their pick-up collided with a wall following a collision with a truck that was overtaking.

 

The accident happened on Route 21 the Lopburi to Petchabun Road near the Saha Farm in Chai Badan district. 

 

The students were on their way home to the villages of Ban Wang Sai and Ban Klong Kratang. 

 

Rescuers and Chai Badan police were greeted with children covered in blood and screaming for help. 

 

Driver Mallika, 28, was also injured.

The four most seriously injured students were taken to Chai Badan hospital first followed by the others. 

 

Some 50 meters away a Hino truck had come to a stop. The driver, Karan, aged 39, said he was following the pick-up and tried to overtake. 

 

But a vehicle came in the opposite direction forcing him to abandon his maneuver and resulting in him clipping the pick-up.

 

Chai Badan police arrested him and took him away.

Horrible! The word morons seems to be all to meaningless nowadays. Again an avoidable accident if people just care to think little bit. 

Just another thought, might be that they stop driving children and students in unsafe cars. Like rebuilt pick ups, for example.

Overtaking on a blind bend?? Where is the risk in that!!😤😤😤😤

I read both reports, I can't see in either of them where it said he overtook on a blind bend ? Can you enlighten us, I know that the translate function isn't very good so I could be wrong.

guarantee you he didn't and still doesn't think he did anything wrong

Obviously, the oncoming vehicle is to blame 😉

This is typical Thai logic; I don't see anyone in front so there's no one ...

They do not take care of checking whether it is in a bend or before the summit of a hill ...

Nah, you can easily fit 30, with some stools in the middle and a few more hanging from the rear cage.

Nothing really, no see - no traffic.

 

Seriouslu though, very many Thai drivers simply can't think ahead, which makes the the roads very dangerous.
