An ambulance returning to Phayao after taking a patient to Phitsanulok hit a tree in Lampang Monday morning, killing two nurses and the driver, police said.

 

Police said the accident happened at 7am on the Ngao-Phayao road in Ban Huay Oon village of Lampang’s Ngao district.

 

The two nurses were identified as Angsumalin Rakchat, 42 and Patchita Hongsa, 21.

 

The ambulance driver was identified as Pongsut Sriprom, 23.

 

Police said the van was returning to Phayao after transferring a patient to Phitsanulok. Police believe the driver dozed off at the wheel.

That and probably speeding as ambulances like to show off, sad loss of lives unnecessary taken...

He may have dozed off, but from the looks of it, he was also seriously speeding.

 

I agree and route 103 between Ngao and Phrae is certainly not built for speeding as it twists and turns through the mountains and valleys. Many of the long distance buses and heavy commercial vehicles use this route as a quicker and shorter way to Bangkok and the south from Ching Rai, Phayao, Maesai, Chiang Saen and Chiang Khong. Condolences to all families.

One thing about these drivers in Thailand, they do not muck around with low speed...They go like a "bat out of hell"...

Lack of training + a silly soft vehicle that's not designed to be an Ambulance.

The first question that comes to my mind is: Who, if anyone, was wearing a seat belt?

You can't argue with a tree but Thai drivers are masters at too much speed and constantly falling asleep at the wheel.

 

RIP the two Nurses, they certainly didn't deserve it.
