Officers arrived at the scene of the crash, in the Khao To area in Krabi’s northernmost district Plai Praya, at about 6:30am.
“The driver had fled the scene,” said Capt Prasert Jamsai of Plai Phraya Police.
“The bus belongs to Phuket Central Co Ltd. There were 33 passengers on board, all Thai. About 20 of them suffered minor cuts and bruises.”
Wipawee Sriracha suffered a head injury and was conscious when she was taken to hospital, he added.
“The injured passengers were taken to Plai Phraya Hospital and Thap Put Hospital,” Capt Prasert said.
“We have contacted the bus company so we can locate and arrest the driver.”
