One dead in Mae Hong Son truck accident

One person has died in an accident involving a 10-wheel truck in Mae Hong Son.

The accident occurred this morning (Aug. 1) in Pa Pong, Sop Moei District at 1 a.m. in heavy rain with the driver saying he lost control of the vehicle resulting in the accident.

The truck itself ended 20 meters below the road surface on its roof with emergency workers taking three hours to free those stuck in the truck itself.

One person, named by Thai language media only as Mrs. Kalyanamai, died in the crash while the driver, named as Mr. Mongkoljapan – presumably the woman’s husband, was seriously injured. Both are from San Sai.
