A Burmese worker stole his boss’ pickup truck and caused a series of collisions, injuring three children and a woman before fleeing the scene. The worker had been in his new job for only four days.

At 1am today, June 28, officers from Bang Bua Thong Police Station received a report about a pickup truck crashing into motorcycles on the Sai Noi intersection bridge on Bang Kruai-Sai Noi Road in Nonthaburi. Officers and volunteers from the Ruam Katanyu Foundation responded to the call.

At the scene, three injured children were found lying on the road. Two girls and one boy, all aged 14, were riding a Honda motorcycle when they were struck. Another Honda motorcycle was also damaged, and its riders sustained minor injuries. Fifty metres away, two pickup trucks were found, heavily damaged.

One of the trucks, an Isuzu, sustained substantial damages to the front end. The driver, 35 year old Chayapa and her mother, 61 year old Pathatharn, were injured. Pathatharn suffered chest injuries and a split lip.

The other truck, the stolen Mitsubishi, had collided with a roadside utility pole. Witnesses reported that the driver fled the scene immediately after the crash. The overall incident resulted in four injuries, all of which were taken to Bang Bua Thong Hospital.

The driver of the other Honda motorcycle, 17 year old Kalawat recounted seeing the pickup truck crash into the motorcycle on the opposite side, causing it to stick to the front of the truck. The impact pushed the motorcycle, driven by teenagers, across the median, and into his motorcycle.

Injuries sustained

Chayapa, the driver of the Isuzu truck, also shared her experience. She was driving from Sai Noi to Bang Bua Thong with her mother when she saw a motorcycle overturned on the bridge. She slowed down, but then the pickup truck suddenly crashed into the median barrier and then into her vehicle, injuring her mother.

According to the owner of the Mitsubishi, 30 year old Teerayut, the truck was stolen while he was drinking with friends at his company located near Rama IV Road.

He revealed that he had left the keys in the ignition, and a newly hired Burmese worker, who had only been working for four days, seized the opportunity and sped away.

Teerayut immediately reported the theft to the Chaiyaphruek Police Station. While doing so, he received a call informing him that his vehicle had been involved in multiple collisions and that there were injuries. He then proceeded to Bang Bua Thong Police Station to provide additional information.

Police documented the scene and questioned the owners of both pickup trucks. The police are now actively searching for the worker responsible for the theft and subsequent accidents, intending to prosecute him according to the law, reported KhaoSod.
