3 people have been killed, one an 11 year old girl, and 2 others seriously injured, after the pick-up they were travelling in collided with a roadside tree. They were all from the same family, driving in a Ford Ranger heading to a family burial. Police say the pickup they were travelling in ran off the road, hitting a roadside tree in Sichon district, Nakhon Si Thammarat, yesterday.

5 members of the one family were among 5 other vehicles who were travelling between Prachin Buri province to Surat Thani and passing through Tha Sala district yesterday morning when the incident happened. Police report that they were taking a dead family member for burial at the muslim cemetery in Ban Nathap, about 40 kilometres away from the scene of the incident.

As they were driving through Thung Prang in Nakhon Si Thammarat, their car ran off the road and crashed into a tamarind tree on the roadside reserve. A man, a woman and an 11 year old girl all died at the scene. The driver and his father were also seriously injured.

Data from the pickup’s dash cam is being examined by police as part of the investigation.

Roadtrippers take a break at petrol station only to find dead body under car | The Thaiger

A group of holiday road trippers from Pathum Thani got a horrifying surprise after finding a partial human body underneath one of their cars. The group was on their way to Koh Chang when they stopped at a petrol station this morning in the eastern province of Khao Saming.

The 10 holidaymakers reported the discovery at Sawang Sawai PTT petrol station at 6:30am. Police and rescue workers say the body was trapped under a Honda Jazz. They say there was no damage to the car as it appeared the car did not have an accident.

The driver of the car says he and 9 of his friends were travelling together in 4 cars, when they stopped at the petrol station to take a break. It was then that one of his friends noticed what looked like a body of some sort beneath his car. Media reports say there was an arm, legs, and torso found under the car, but no head.

The driver says they thought the body was a dead animal carcass and slowly backed up the car, only to find a partial human body. About 3 to 4 kilometres earlier, he said they all saw what they thought was a dog carcass on the road, but it was dark and could not clearly see what it was.

Their accounts stack up to what Swang Boonchuay rescue foundation confirmed as it arrived a couple of hours earlier to the scene of an accident in Chanthaburi province. Their search turned up nothing but then the team went out again a bit later and found human body parts scattered along Sukhumvit Road.

Police say they will examine the driver’s car while he is on holiday in which he will return afterwards to collect it.

The body of a 14 year old student was found trapped under the trailer truck. The other 13 year old student died on the way to a local hospital. Rescuers say he had critical head and leg injuries. The motorbike was found 50 metres from the truck.

The trailer truck driver, 41 year old Banjonsak Somboon, faces charges of reckless driving causing death. He says he quickly changed lanes to avoid another vehicle.
