A car crash in southern Thailand’s Songkhla province has killed 2 people. The couple sailed their car off the road and into a canal off a main highway, yesterday afternoon.

Vivorn Khunkaew, who works as an investigator for the Thepha police stations, says the car accident happened around 4 pm yesterday, close to the Moo 2 village in tambon Pag Bang.

Eyewitness to the car crash say they watched the vehicle swerve off the road, hit a tamarind tree, and then plunge 4 metres down into the Tuyong canal. The witnesses then called the 1699 emergency hotline.

Rescue workers used a crane to pull the car out of the canal. It reportedly took around an hour to extract the vehicle. Officials found a man and a woman in the car. The man is 31 year old Oam Thammasoon, from Yala. The woman did not have identification on her.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
