Five people were killed and another five seriously injured when the pick-up truck of a family returning from a shopping trip collided head-on with an oncoming pick-up truck just one kilometre before reaching the family’s home on Sunday night in Chachoengsao.
 

Following a report of the fatal crash in Bang Pakong at 9.30pm, police and rescue workers rushed to the scene – the Rang ta Sorn curve on the old Sukhumvit Road in tambon Song Khlong.

 

They found four dead bodies – later identified as Apichat Wanarat, 31, Sasinat Lertsuwan, 30, Pimpisa Lertsuwan, 31, and Patch-amporn Lertsuwan, 57 – in a Mitsubishi Triton pick-up truck that had overturned in the roadside ditch. Passenger Piyawat Pliansiri, 35, who had been thrown from the vehicle, was seriously injured.

 

Piyawat said his group was returning from a mall and was only one kilometre from home when the crash took place.

 

Officers found the other pickup – a Toyota Revo – on the road with four injured people trapped inside, along with the dead body of Pitak Saengnak, 23.

 

The wounded four were later identified as Nattapol Jaiyot, 27, Nisa Sonmang, 32, Natchakul Jaiyot, 9, and Pitak’s seven-month-pregnant wife Jintala Nilakhon, 20.

And absolutely zero reported on why this happened!

Because no one cares why it happens and authorities have little interest in trying to persuade the population from self-euthanising !!

I read an article several years back released by an insurance company that said most car accidents occur within 5 miles of the victims homes.

A clip on LL yesterday seemed to be from a dashcam in one of these cars showing the other on the wrong side of the road at speed with no lights.

HTH

Good call. People are just too relaxed near home thinking "this is my back yard and I know it like the back of my hand" all too often forgetting everything they ever learned about road safety and being aware on that same road.

Yep. It's an unemployment solution, and possibly wrong amulets worn also..
