2 people have died and another 4 have been injured in a collision between 2 vehicles in the eastern province of Chon Buri. The Pattaya News reports that one of the dead is a 2 year old girl. The incident, between a black sedan and a white pick-up truck, occurred in the Koh Chan district, in the north east of the province.

An unnamed 2 year old girl and a 48 year old male, named as Boonkom Ronrueangrit, both sustained serious injuries and were pronounced dead by the time they arrived at a local hospital. 4 others were injured in the collision. The injured include 2 women, 40 year old Nong Nuch, and 39 year old Nid Klinmut, as well as a 27 year old male, Boonchai Sawatdeemongkon. An unnamed 3 year old girl is also among the injured. All 4 are now being treated in hospital.

Chon Buri police have launched an investigation into the incident. Initial reports say CCTV footage shows the black car appearing to lose control and veering into the opposite lane, before ploughing into the white pick-up.

The district of Sattahip, in the eastern province of Chon Buri, is picking up the pieces after a devastating storm struck in the early hours of yesterday morning. According to a Pattaya News report, 11 fishing boats have sunk and at least 20 homes have sustained damage, mainly along the coast. It’s understood most of the fishing boats belong to the Khao Lan fisheries group.

The roof of Chong Samae San Temple has also collapsed, significantly damaging the building. However, it’s believed no injuries were sustained or lives lost in the storm. Wanchat Wanphram, deputy district chief of Sattahip, inspected the damaged areas in the company of the local Red Cross and a number of district officials.

The Pattaya News reports that the Red Cross and Wanchat distributed survival bags to affected residents. It’s understood district officials plan to provide some form of financial aid to those who have lost their homes or whose properties and boats have been damaged.

Meanwhile, the Thai Meteorological Department has issued a warning for more storms in the coming days.
