A School Bus has crashed into an 18 wheeler truck

A School bus trying a dangerous overtaking maneuver has crashed into the trailer of an 18 wheeler truck travelling in the opposite direction. All 12 children on board have survived with injuries whilst the driver of the bus, a 50 year old Thai Lady named Ladda Leuangpramuan, later died in hospital.

The footage of the crash was caught by the dash-cam from a vehicle close behind, who managed to avoid the accident. It shows the bus trying to overtake whilst travelling at high speed. We have uploaded the footage to our Facebook.

The young students involved suffered several injuries to the head, legs, and arms, some worse than others, and were all taken to 2 local hospitals to be treated.

Police and emergency services were quickly onto the scene, where they found that the driver’s side of the bus had been completely ripped off and was left in the left hand lane of the road, whilst the bus had veered off into a roadside ditch.

The driver of the 18 wheeler suffered no major injuries, and is now co-operating with police to help with their investigation into the incident.

The children’s families were quickly made aware of the incident and flocked to the 2 local hospitals to make sure their children were all making a full recovery.

    I have seen this appalling video, absolutely crazy maneuver in very poor weather conditions, road conditions and very poor visibility, pure inexperience of driving this type of vehicle, how on earth would this driver (RIP) be given a license to carry such precious cargo, it could have easily been 12 school children dead, only through sheer luck that it was only the driver who perished, at what point will the relevant authorities take control of this madness.. I guess if it was 40 Police officers or government officials on a trip somewhere that perished due to driver madness, maybe that would make the authorities sit up and think.. bring in a strict test for all passenger carrying vehicles, and don’t take a bribe to allow someone to pass when they obviously cant do it on their own merit.. get a grip Thailand

      We all know exactly what needs doing. Just as you suggest.
      But we all also know this will never happen.

    This is the way Thai are driving here when truck are going slow. I’ve been traveling to Korat last year and Thai are sharing the opposite road direction without any confirmation from the other drivers coming toward them thinking that they will automatically go on the paved side road. Seeing people driving like that was a very stressful experience.
