There’s been three big winners for last Friday’s bi-monthly Thai Government Lottery in Thailand’s central provinces. The winning numbers for the latest draw on January 17 were 491774 with winnings of 6 million baht up for grabs for every winning ticket.
73 year old Prakob Pansaior from Jaturas District in Chaiyaphum Province was the first winner. As soon as he realised he had a winning ticket he drove to the Jaturas Police Station to confirm the evidence of his win. He told reporters that he dreamed of his mother who had passed away who gave him some of the numbers. He told INN News that the money will help pay off debts and the rest will go to his grandchildren.
The second winner was 57 year old Rayrai Lerdpudsa, a village chief of the Baan Hua Saphan Village in Nong Bua Ra Heaw District. Rayrai had two winning tickets, bringing in a total of 12 million baht.
The third winners 40 year old Manit Wannahat from Kaset Sombun District. Manit currently works at the City of Paradise in neighbouring Nakhon Sawan Province. Manit also had two winning lottery tickets bringing in 12 million baht. He and his wife have a 3 year old daughter. The couple said that even winning a two-digit prize would’ve been a surprise. The family promised to plan carefully with where the money will go.

Deputy village chief in trouble over racy Facebook photos
What was she thinking?! A deputy village chief in the central province of Ang Thong has found herself in hot water after her sexy Facebook photos were shared online yesterday, Khao Sod reports.
“I think what she did was a disgrace for our religious and community leaders, who must take action against her,” wrote one Facebook
busybody member, who posted two photos of the woman, one in an official uniform, the other in a swimsuit.
Pattama Nuamjit, the village chief, says she’s received numerous phone calls from local residents who “demand the deputy face disciplinary action.” Pattama says a report will be sent to the district chief for further consideration.

2 crushed as truck overturns in Suphan Buri
Two men were crushed to death when tractor-trailer truck overturned in Suphanburi province in central Thailand yesterday. Horrific CCTV footage showed the moment the truck, carrying animal feed, overturned, crushing the two, who were travelling on a motorcycle with a sidecar.
The deceased were identified as 64 year old Montha and 56 year old Phra Manop, a monk at the nearby Wat Nong Wan Priang temple. They were returning to the temple on Route 321 after the monk completed his alms.
The driver of the truck, 29 year old Chainarong, was taken to hospital.
Police and rescue services used two cranes to lift the overturned truck. Rescue services had the grisly job of removing the victims’ bodies, which had suffered horrendous injuries.
Sanook reports that Chainarong was trying to avoid a collision after another truck in front braked suddenly, but lost control, resulting in the deaths of the two victims. Local media say the location is an accident blackspot.
