Three people are dead following two separate accidents in the Bang Phli district of Samut Prakan, south and east of Bangkok’s centre.

The first incident occurred around 7.30pm on Saturday night on the Bang Na-Trat highway. A married couple were killed after their motorcycle was run over by a six wheeled truck. The couple were identified as 58 year old Somchai Arunprapapan and his 55 year old wife Ratchanee.

The 34 year old truck driver told police that his truck was travelling northbound in the middle lane with a bus driving in the right lane. He claimed he was unaware of a motorcycle driving between the two vehicles.

He says he felt his truck run over “something” and stopped on the roadside verge to check out the situation. He found the motorcycle crushed underneath his truck and the couple had been killed. Police are continuing their investigation into the cause of the incident.

Then early this morning, around 4am a man driving a motorcycle was killed after slamming into the back of an 18 wheel truck in a soi leading to Wat Sriwaree Noi temple in Bang Phli district. The man was identified as 33 year old Nathapol Kularpkhao.

The 35 year old truck driver driver says he was taking a load of goods to his company’s factory when the incident took place. Police are also investigating the circumstances leading up to this incident.
