The winning number from yesterday’s bi-monthly Thai lottery was 244083 making instant millionaires out of some lucky Thais. A winning ticket receives 6 million baht. Other numbers are drawn with lower prizes in the elaborate, and highly popular, live broadcast of the drawing of the numbers.

The winner of a massive 48 million baht – 8 winning tickets – is a 36 year old car salesman from Chaiyaphum Province, Paisarn. He’s single (although we suspect he will getting a renewed range of romantic offers fairly soon) and works at a Toyota showroom in the Chaiyaphum city area… for now anyway.

Paisarn told Khaosod media that, while he was having dinner with a friend the night before the draw, a lottery seller approached his table where he was eating. The seller showed the winner his last set of tickets, 8 tickets with the same number. The seller asked Paisarn to buy the remaining tickets so he could afford to return to his home in Loei (north east Thailand). Paisarn’s generosity in helping the ticket seller certainly paid off!

When the lottery draw numbers were announced yesterday, Paisarn checked the numbers and was shocked because ALL 8 tickets were winning tickets, each bringing in the 6 million winner prize. As is the law, the winner quickly went to file a report with the local police as evidence that the tickets belong to him.

Paisarn says he will pay off debts and Gove money to his parents “for all the good they’ve done for him”. Paisarn says he will “carefully use the money for the security of his future”.

Note to the Toyota showroom in Chaiyaphum… you better start looking for a new salesman.

A woman in the north-eastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima has allegedly been shot dead by her husband because she wanted a divorce. It’s alleged the man then turned the gun on himself, dying from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police officers called to a property in the sub-district of Thephalai found the bodies of 46 year old Mongkhol Aksorn, and his 34 year old wife, Saifon Aksorn, who was face down in a pool of blood. According to a report in Nation Thailand, an acquaintance of Saifon’s informed police that the woman wanted to leave her husband for another man. When she asked Mongkhol for a divorce, it’s understood he took her car and drove away. He subsequently returned to the property, which is when the shooting is believed to have taken place.

According to a neighbour who heard the gun shots, the couple argued frequently.

“Yesterday, they fought about a car that belonged to Saifon, but which Mongkhol had borrowed. He drove off in the car and returned a short while later, when I heard several gunshots from their house.”

The police investigation is ongoing.

A 19 year old man faces charges of intent to murder for allegedly shooting and killing a teenage girl. The man told police he shot the gun in the sky and did not intend to harm anyone. The stray bullet went through the girl’s heart and also injured her friend.

16 year old Nutthicha Thanthaisong was riding home on a motorcycle from an event in the Isaan province Buriram while a group of teenagers were allegedly firing off guns. A bullet hit her back and exited through her heart, killing her. Her 19 year old friend driving the motorcycle was also injured by the bullet. Nation Thailand says he is being treated, but did not report on the details of his injury.

Police questioned 19 year old Natthakit Boonluea after receiving reports from 6 of the man’s friends saying he shot the teenage girl. Natthakit told police he shot the gun in the sky and did not aim it at the girl.

Police say they believe more people were shooting off guns and plan to question around 50 people that may have been involved in the shooting.

8 Roi-et volunteers killed, 33 injured in bus crash at Nakhon Ratchasima | The Thaiger

7 people have been killed and another 33 injured when a tour bus collided into the back of an 18 wheeler trailer truck in Nakhon Ratchasima early yesterday, on the way to Pattaya. The double decker was travelling on the Nakhon Ratchasima-Kabin Buri road in the Chaimongkhol subdistrict just before 4am Saturday morning when the incident happened. The truck and the bus collided at an intersection. All 8 killed were health volunteers from Roi-et. Police say it appears that the bus was speeding at the time when it smashed into the back of the truck.

When police arrived they found the trailer truck, with Lopburi licence plates, and the double decker bus, which had rolled over onto its side. Emergency responders report that the bus was carrying 40 passengers. Out of those 7 died in the collision and 33 were injured. The injured were rushed to district hospitals.

A preliminary police review of the incident reports that the tour bus was transporting a group of health volunteers from Roi Et (north east) province back home from their trip to Pattaya, Chonburi province (Central Thailand). The driver of the trailer truck driver told police that the bus was speeding and crashed into the rear of his truck.

Police are continuing their investigation, checking CCTV and interviewing witnesses to determine the cause of the incident.
