In a tragic turn of events, a father and his 3 year old daughter were killed in a road accident today near Chachoengsao when their car lost control and struck an electric pole. Both were found lifeless, the father holding his daughter tightly in a final embrace.

At the scene, emergency responders discovered a black Toyota Camry with Bangkok license plates, overturned by the roadside. The force of the collision with the electric pole, which had snapped and fallen, indicated the severity of the crash.

Inside the vehicle were the bodies of 36 year old Chatree and his 3 year old daughter Fongbeer. The impact had flung the little girl’s body close to her father, who had died holding her, with the car door crushing his chest and her neck.

No other parties were involved in the accident. Rescue workers extracted the bodies from the wreckage for further examination by medical personnel from Buddha Sothorn Hospital.

Chatree’s 15 year old son, Jirachai, who arrived at the site, was in shock after learning about the accident. He revealed that his father and sister had left their home in Wat Phrong Akat, Bang Nam Priao District, to retrieve their clothes in the city.

Jirachai had been informed of the accident through a phone call but had not anticipated that both would lose their lives, reported Khaosod.

Officers from Mueang Chachoengsao Police Station are investigating the area and collecting evidence to proceed according to the law. This heartbreaking event has left the family in a state of disbelief and grief, as they struggle to come to terms with the sudden loss.
