One dead as chicken truck crashes in Phrao

One man has died and two people were injured after the chicken truck they were in crashed in Phrao last night, Feb. 28.

The accident occurred on Pa Deng-Mae On Road in Long Khot at around 8 p.m.

According to reports, the three were returning to a local farm after delivering chickens to Mueang Chiang Mai when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

The driver of the truck, Mr. Somkid Khruek, 37, was crushed to death in the front of the truck while the two workers in the truck, who presumably were wearing seat belts, only suffered minor injuries.

It took emergency services works 20 minutes to cut Mr. Khruek’s body from the six-wheel Hino truck.
