A driver was injured and his wife killed after his 22-wheel trailer truck crashed into a concrete barrier along a road in Prachin Buri.

 

Wangkhondaeng provincial police were informed early on Wednesday by a local rescue team about the accident on Road No 304 as it sloped from Khao San Poo Tone in Prachin Buri’s Na Di district.

 

At the scene police found the wrecked trailer smashed against the concrete barrier. It had broken off from the truck cab and its containers were strewn on the road, obstructing traffic. 

 

Driver Weerechai Wongchit, 47, was caught under the cab’s console and had to be assisted out by rescue staff. He was sent to hospital.

 

The body of his wife, Warintip Chancham, 45, was found under the trailer. There were severe wounds on her body. 

 

Police believe the accident occurred because of a brake problem. However, they aim to interrogate the driver once he gets better.

Sad when anyone dies, guess this time lucky concrete barrier and not a heap of other vehicles. 

I was involved in transport industry for 40 years and never had a vehicle with brake failure.

Guess they don't make them like they used to 8n past.

Probably because they don't service and/or do a proper test/inspection of heavy goods vehicles here, if ordinary road vehicle tests are anything to go by, I would say that is the case....😬

I was going to ask how the wife ended up under the trailer wheel, then found the photo, Jeez the Cab has come completely detached !  Brake fail is poss. by an oil/grease leak into the brake drum but......?
