highway crash claims three lives,

A distressing vehicular collision involving multiple automobiles took place on Asia Highway 41 in Chumphon province, Thailand, resulting in severe injuries and numerous fatalities.

The crash site exhibited a state of disarray, characterized by the presence of a blue Toyota Revo pickup truck, bearing the license plate 9307 Phetchaburi, which had overturned and impeded the flow of traffic in the left lane.

The discovery was made of a white Scania container truck in a state of destruction, having toppled in a water ditch adjacent to the roadway. Additionally, a six-wheeled Hino dump truck was found in the same ditch, exhibiting signs of damage.
The individuals who lost their lives have been identified as Kittisak Senakan, aged 22, who was operating the dump truck, Thongsak Thepchim, aged 39, who was driving the pickup vehicle, and Withaya Hatta, aged 37.

The rescue workers arranged the dead in a row, providing solace to the distressed relatives who had been eagerly anticipating updates.


Based on initial findings, it was determined that Thongsak was engaged in the transportation of vegetables from Ratchaburi province to Lang Suan District.

The individual was compelled to halt their expedition upon the occurrence of a tire malfunction, specifically the explosion of the back left tire of their pickup truck.

Ithaya, an acquaintance of Thongsak, arrived to provide assistance and parked his truck in close proximity to Thongsak’s automobile. Kittisak, who was engaged in the transportation of soil in close proximity, also halted his activities to provide assistance.

In an abrupt turn of events, a container truck, operated by Suphat Phairangam, a 53-year-old individual, collided with the immobile cars, resulting in the tragic occurrence.

Suphat, who sustained minor injuries, was present at the site with his spouse and exhibited cooperation with the law enforcement authorities. According to a report by KhaoSod Online, a comprehensive investigation is being carried out by the authorities in order to ascertain the precise reason of the accident and to initiate legal proceedings against the driver of the container truck.
