The driver of the tour bus, 44 year old Somsak Janpho, has been patting himself on the back claiming, but for his swift actions, the passengers on the bus could have been badly injured or killed.

The driver of the cement mixer has been taken to the local Ban Phai Hospital for observation where police have been questioning him.

One passenger says she heard the driver shout there was going to be a collision. She said the reserve driver had suffered a head injury as a result of the collision.
