A van carrying primary-level students in Lampang province flipped over on Tuesday morning, injuring 21 passengers.

 

The accident did not claim any lives.

 

Police officers showed up with local mitigation officials and helped pull students out of the overturned van.

 

Of them, 14 were taken to Mae Moh Hospital by good Samaritans.

 

The driver, 60, said he had lost control of the van when its clutch stopped working, though police have said they will investigate the case further.

I believe this is the second recent accident involving a "man with passenger van" carrying students in this part of Lampang Province?? The other accident involved a passenger van driving from Korat to Chiang Mai.

Just when i was starting to believe brake failure, I recently took my old car for testing, knowing it had some problems with the rear brake cylinders leaking on to the shoes, and 2 of the tyres down to the wear bars, I thought I'd get a fail and see what else it would fail on before spending money on repairs. It passed with flying colors.

I rode in one of these "silver bullets of death" a decade ago from BKK to PKK for a job interview..

 

And I decided to ride shotgun.........................................................................Never. Again.........Nope

 

Also book buses to laos that have TWO drivers, not one guy with a plastic bag full of M18 or Red Bulls

Hope you had new tyres fitted.
