A delivery truck driver tragically lost his life after his vehicle skidded on a slippery road and crashed into a high-voltage pole. The incident occurred at 11am today on the Chachoengsao-Phanat Nikhom road near the Don Sin Non intersection, Don Sai subdistrict, Ban Pho district, Chachoengsao province.

Police officer Teep Mailuekdee received the report and immediately headed to the scene with rescue teams from Ban Pho Hospital and Chachoengsao Rescue Unit. Upon arrival, they found a severely damaged Toyota pickup truck with a covered cargo area, registered in Bangkok. Debris from the wreck was scattered all over the site.

Inside the mangled vehicle was the lifeless body of 31 year old Somchai pinned against the steering wheel. The emergency services had to use hydraulic cutting tools to extricate his body from the wreckage. The remains were then transported to Ban Pho Hospital, awaiting family members to claim the body for religious rites.

Investigations revealed delivery documents inside the truck, indicating that the packages were from a private company and destined for two locations. The journey began in Ubon Ratchathani and was supposed to pass through this route, reported KhaoSod.
