A school teacher has been killed and eight others injured in yet another fatal passenger van crash. This time on Phahonyothin Road, Nong Khae in Saraburi late last night (November 24).

Police say the fatal crash happened just before midnight.

The van , believed to be from the Chaiyaphum province, was returning 10 Chaiyaphum teachers after a sightseeing trip in Bangkok.

Police say that the van has rammed into the side of a trailer truck which was making a right turn. At this stage they don’t know the cause of the accident or who might have been at fault.

Local emergency crews arrived and had to use the ‘jaws of life’ to force open the crumpled van. The occupants were all rushed to the Nong Khae Hospital. Police say that 60 year old Niphanan Nanthiprapha died in hospital as a result of her injuries.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident and will interview the survivors when they recover.

    Same same everyday. Just a different day. Just another day of terrible drivers. Thailand now has to be the most dangerous place to drive with the most deaths each year as the numbers are on the rise over the last few years. Yes there are odd times like Songkran when people are more careful when the accidents for that week go down. But in normal times its alarming the number of accidents and deaths.
