Seven South Korean and two Indonesian tourists were injured this morning (Tuesday) when their chartered van ran into the drainage ditch in the middle of a Muang Nakhon Pathom road and struck a tree.

Police say the driver Thinnakorn Meekhao lost control in the southbound lane of Phetkasem Road in Tambon Bang Khaem near the Uni Land Golf Course intersection.

Seven male tourists from South Korea and an Indonesian man and woman were taken to Bangkok Sanam Chan Hospital about one kilometre away.

Nakhon Pathom deputy police chief Pol Col Chatpanthakarn Klaiklueng says two of the Korean men and the Indonesian woman were critically injured.

The rest had minor injuries but have been kept in hospital for monitoring for possible internal injuries.
