A tragic accident occurred when a Mitsubishi Pajero lost control and plunged off a bridge, resulting in severe damage to the vehicle, leaving one person dead and two others injured. Police rushed to the scene on Ban Khu-Kong Ra Road, in Phatthalung Province, following the incident.

At 11.40pm yesterday, Phatthalung’s Kong Ra Police Station and emergency responders arrived at the accident site in Moo 4, Khlong Chalerm Subdistrict, Kong Ra District. The vehicle, a Mitsubishi Pajero with the licence plate 5973 Songkhla, had veered off the bridge and flipped onto its side in a roadside ditch. The car was found severely damaged, with three people trapped inside.

Rescuers used hydraulic cutting tools to free the trapped individuals. They were identified as 55 year old Hronmin Wadthan, 63 year old Jutharat Saenwandi, and the driver, 59 year old Bubakard Yadee. All three were rushed to Kong Ra Hospital with serious injuries. Unfortunately, Bubakard Yadee succumbed to his injuries shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Locals reported that the accident occurred at a curve in the road, leading to the vehicle losing control and crashing into the ditch. Residents nearby heard the crash and initially attempted to assist the victims before emergency services arrived, said one local.

“We heard a loud crash and rushed to the scene. The car was in terrible shape, and we tried to help until the rescue team arrived.”

The police are investigating to determine the precise cause of the accident. The curve in the road where the accident occurred is known to be hazardous, and it is suspected that the vehicle may have skidded off the road due to losing control, reported KhaoSod.
