Man dies after driving into the back of a parked truck in Lampang

A 30-year-old man has died after driving at high speed into the back of a parked truck in Lampang yesterday, March 5.

The accident happened on Chamadevi Road (Highway 1015) in Nong Lom, Hang Chat at around 12:55 a.m.

The deceased,  Mr. Theerapong Malachai, 30 drove straight into the back of a Chiang Mai-registered 10-wheel truck parked at the side of the road.

Photos from the scene show the truck not only clearly off the road proper but at a well-lit intersection.

It’s believed that Mr. Malachai died on impact, particularly given that front third of the vehicle was squashed nearly flat.

Police are said to be investigating.
