One dead following head-on collision in Fang

One person has died and a number of others injured in a head-on collision in Fang last night, Dec. 3.

The accident occurred on Chiang Mai – Fang Road Road (Highway 107) in Moo 5 Mae Kha and involved a Honda Jazz and a Toyota Hilux.

The deceased, Mr. Narin Pong Boonchu, 43 from Nong Bua, Chai Prakarn was found on the road by emergency services workers after being flung from the Hilux as he was not wearing a seatbelt.

The driver of the Jazz told police that Mr. Boonchu had crossed the road into their path.

Police said that they believe the accident was due to the road sloping at that point, causing drivers to often cross onto the wrong side of the road.
