A high-impact collision occurred at Phaya Thai intersection, sending shockwaves through the area as a truck crashed into a height restriction barrier on Sri Ayutthaya Road inbound from the Mor Leng intersection to the Sri Ayutthaya intersection, around the ramp to the overpass at Phaya Thai intersection.

The incident, which took place at 7.18am today, May 9, caused severe damage and led to significant traffic congestion, extending to the Ramkhamhaeng intersection.

Following the crash, police were swift to respond, closing two traffic lanes to facilitate the removal of the wreckage. This action inevitably led to a buildup of vehicles, as drivers faced delays while the clean-up operation was underway, reported KhaoSod.

The swift response from the officials helped mitigate the situation, and by 7.29am, they had managed to clear the truck and the collapsed roof structure. The efforts continued as the team cleared the debris and cleaned the road to restore normal traffic flow.
