Two dead, two injured as Air Force water truck overturns on Doi Inthanon

Two people have died and another two people were injured when an Air Force water truck overturned on Doi Inthanon in Chom Thong this afternoon, Nov. 18.

The accident occurred on the approach to the Kew Mae Pan lookout within Doi Inthanon National Park at around 1:30 p.m.

The cause of the accident unknown at this stage but pictures from the scene would indicate that the water truck, carrying four people, presumably with the Air Force, has veered off the road and overturned.

The truck took out power lines in the process – whether that has contributed to the deaths or was a side fact is not clear. The rear wheels of the truck do seem to have become tangled in the power lines, however.

The two injured in the water truck were transported to Chom Thong Hospital.

We’ll update the post if more details come to hand.
