Two pickup trucks smashed into each other on Si Sa Ket-Ubon Ratchathani Road, killing three passengers including an 11-month-old baby. The two drivers sustained major injuries.

 

Muang Si Sa Ket station police were alerted to the accident at 2.45pm on Wednesday on Highway No 226 at Km 7 from Si Saket to Ubon Ratchathani. At the scene they found two Isuzu D-Max pickup trucks crumpled from the head-on collision. Rescue staff had to use a metal cutter to free the passengers.

 

The drivers of the vehicles – Nathanon Chatkaewphanakul, 40, and Thawatchai Phromma, 47, suffered major injuries and were rushed to hospital. Their condition is critical.

Officials found the body of Muthita Ladadok, 29, Nathanon’s wife, in the front passenger seat of one truck. Her 11-month-old daughter, who was in her arms, suffered from extensive injuries. The baby was rushed to hospital but later succumbed to her wounds. In the other truck, officials found the body of Jarunee Phromma, 39, Thawatchai’s wife, in the front passenger seat.

 

Police are gathering evidence to determine the cause of the accident, but a preliminary investigation showed the collision might have been caused by a slippery highway from heavy rains.

They just don't get it .. proper child seats are available to securely restrain a young baby yet they continue to hold the child in the front with disasterous consequences .. 

Unfortunately this won't be the last as the lessons are rarely learned ..

That damned rain again, causing accidents, can't wait for the rainy season to end so all the accidents will stop.

My girlfriend's mum and dad just had accident. Dad was driving. Hit one car then into a house. About 110,000 damage and guess what?.....no insurance.

 

They also had one year old grandson with them. And where was he sitting? On dad's (the driver) lap.

 

Just no idea at all.

with respects , two idiots going 100km and hour in the rain hitting each other head on would probably negate the safety of the child seat

Not true... Yes, both are idiots, but child safety seats are proven to reduce the chance of serious injury or death. Had these asshats been driving reasonably, it wouldn't be an issue. But sitting in the front w momma IS THE REAL problem.

Passengers died, drivers survived. Oh the irony of having to live knowing you were the driver of a vehicle in which your wife and possibly your kid died. Poetic justice to at least one driver, possibly both.

 

These slippery roads are getting like the ubiquitous electric poles and trees.
