A truck transporting Sky wine cooler drinks overturned yesterday, Nov. 28, spilling its cargo of drinks in Mae Sariang.
The accident occurred on Mae Sariang – Chiang Mai Road (Highway 108) near the Pa Pae turn-off at around 5:30 p.m.
The driver, Mr. Pornchai Em, 37 told police that he was traveling down a hill when the brakes on the truck failed. He was subsequently taken to Mae Sariang Hospital with minor injuries.
Reports note that as the truck blocked Highway 108 – the main route to Mae Sariang, traffic banked back over one kilometer from the crash scene.
