Eleven people have been injured when a ten-wheeler truck cut in front of a bus, causing to swerve into another bus. Bus #195 crashed into Bus #205 on Rama 3 Road, Klong Toey in Bangkok. The injured passengers are recovering in hospital and assisting police with their enquiries.
Tungmahamek Police headed to the location of the incident with emergency responders. Bus #195’s front end had been smashed from the left, including a broken windshield. 11 Passengers were injured from the accident and were taken to three nearby hospitals.
The Driver of Bus #205, 51 year old Pramun Srilakorn, told police he was driving along the left lane and Bus #195 was driving behind. When the two buses reached a construction site by the Sunthon Kosa Intersection Overpass, Pramun says a ten-wheeled truck carrying dirt drove appeared from construction site entrance and cut in front of his bus.
He had to stop so suddenly that the #195 bus driver couldn’t stop in time, causing the two buses to collide.
Waruni Pikulkaew, the 19 year old bus-attendant, said the driver yelled to the passengers that the bus won’t brake then there was a loud bang and passengers bounced around inside the bus.
Witnesses told police that these incidents happen often and there are many close-calls because of the trucks coming out from the construction site. They also told police that there is dirt left on the road that regularly causes motorbikes to crash while they are driving past the site.
