Bancha Pannum, a witness at the scene, said he saw the van drive through the intersection, cross several lanes and crash into the truck, which was also full of passengers

 

It goes on to say he may have fallen asleep. Horrendous. Poor buggers!

I took a van from Kanchanaburi to Bangkok once.....and once was enough.

 

If you value your life, don't get in a van, big bus, train, or fly.

Good God, this is horrible, horrendous and just so terrible, please Mr Prayuth can you do something about these minibuses, limit them to 80 kph, make it mandatory to have GPS installed and check the drivers for drugs, alcohol and how much sleep the driver has had prior to starting work and fine the asses off the companies running these things.

 

RIP to all those poor souls.

 

My Mrs is driving to Chanthaburi on Friday for a wedding, I worry constantly until she calls to tell me she has arrived safely.
