A trailer truck flipped over due to a brake and engine malfunction in Prachinburi province early on Wednesday, killing a one-month-old infant and severely burning a man and his partner.

 

Police were notified of the accident just after midnight and called for help from firefighters and rescue volunteers.

 

The trailer was almost entirely engulfed in flames after its petrol tank exploded, and the man and woman trapped inside could not be pulled out until firefighters were able to get the flames under control. They are severely burned and being treated at Nadee Hospital.

 

Their month-old infant was found dead on the road. Police believe the three were a family and the infant flew out of the windscreen when the trailer flipped.

How the hell can they possibly know that now?

 

They know because they know that the driver will always say so

- and because they never look for evidence of any other cause

Sickening how you can be wiped out in a second here with alarming regularity any time any place any road 🤔Rip

 

Whats more sickening is that this happens time and time again with little enforecment of the law, poor driving skills, poorly maintained vechicles and idiots behind the wheel.

 

How many crashes in the UK are caused by brake failure ? Hardly none!

The report in the OP is confusing and lacks detail. As read, this family were traveling in the trailer? No. The reader is left to assume that they were in the cab of a truck towing a trailer when, suddenly, beyond the control of the driver the engine and brakes malfunctioned causing the truck to catch fire and eject the infant through the windscreen but not the driver and passenger who must have been restrained.
