A man has died after the car he was driving burst into flames when it collided with another vehicle. Nation Thailand reports that the accident happened in the Nong Jok district of Bangkok. It’s understood the victim, named as 47 year old Issara Bangyai, was test-driving a Mazda sedan in front of a car showroom when a pickup truck jumped a traffic island on the other side of the road and ploughed into him. The force of the impact caused the Mazda to burst into flames.

Police and firefighters raced to the scene and, after extinguishing the fire, found Issara’s body inside the vehicle. The cause of death has been confirmed as burning. A man and woman who were travelling in the pickup truck were both injured in the collision and have been taken to hospital. Police are checking CCTV footage to establish the cause of the accident.

In the latest of what have become near daily protests calling for change, some 100 students protesters defied the rain early yesterday evening at Bangkok’s Srinakharinwirot University to voice anger at the government and demand a return to democracy. Speakers took turns addressing their peers huddled under an awning at about 5pm. A a fourth-year International Relations student told reporters: “Protesting to repel the dictators is necessary, of course, but it will mean nothing without changing the law.” He was one of a series of speakers calling for the Constitution to be rewritten to shift the balance of power back […]

That order came after 18 such facilities were accused of swindling 72 million baht from the scheme in patient claims. Dr Pongsak Srimusikapo met opposition parties, members of the House’s committee on corruption and misconduct suppression and other officials, and submitted a 6 point […]
