One dead as truck drives off road in Lampang

A man has died after driving his truck off a road in Lampang today, June 3.

The accident happened on Wang Nuea – Mae Khachan (Highway 120) in Wang Thong, Wang Nuea at around 9:30 a.m.

The Phayao-registered truck was transporting rock to Wang Nuea when the accident. The name of the driver was not disclosed.

It’s believed that the driver may have lost control coming down a hill and has failed to navigate a bend. Given the damage – specifically the lack thereof in the pictures, he presumably wasn’t wearing a seat belt at the time as the accident should have been survivable.
