A scene of utter devastation greeted Tha Luang police and rescue personnel after two pick-ups collided at a crossroads in Lopburi, central Thailand, on Sunday.

 

The accident happened at the Ta Cha intersection, a crossroads without lights in Nong Phak Wen sub-district. 

 

Bunmee, 64, the driver of a Nissan pick-up was dead at the scene.

 

The severely injured bodies of a many men, women and children were scattered all about the undergrowth next to the road. Some were trapped inside the vehicle and had to be cut out.

 

In total 13 injured people were ferried to two area hospitals. 

 

They were travelling in an Isuzu pick-up and had just made merit in a Thot Kathin ceremony at a nearby temple and were on their way to a waterfall to continue their day out.

Pick-Ups again. Thais drive them like the car companies advertise them, fast, furious doing the impossible. Car companies should take a lot of responsibility for road deaths in Thailand. 

There is nothing wrong with the pickups it is who is controlling them that is the problem, one could also say the same about SUV's

Might I surmise that speed was involved due to the degree of damage to the trucks?

Inevitable daily occurrence in Thailand where all pick-up drivers think they are Lewis Hamilton.  The upside is that's two less of those dambed things on the road this morning, they are a constant menace everywhere !

The unfortunate thing is, that many drivers are totally oblivious to what else is on the road or around them...and people still sit in the back of these vehicles.

It's sad that the government are more bothered about spending hundreds of billions of baht on new submarines than they are about using some of that money to investigate and improve Thailands dismal road safety.
