truck crashes and burns on motorway

On August 22, an 18-wheeled trailer truck traveling in the direction of Bangkok collided with a barrier, flipped over, and burst into flames close to the Laem Chabang-Nong Kham toll booth on Motorway No. 7.

The Nakhon Sawan-registered Hino 18-wheeler was lying on its side, on fire, next to the road. Within 20 minutes, a rescue crew put out the flames engulfing the front of the truck.

The truck’s 32-year-old driver, Noppol Saembamrung, suffered minor wounds but kept his or her composure.

He told the authorities that the truck flipped over, crashed, and caught fire as a result of him losing control while traveling at a somewhat high speed and hitting the barrier.

He was able to get away, and he requested help from the authorities.

Noppol initially received treatment locally before being transported to Laem Chabang Hospital for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment.

Highway police are currently looking into the incident further to determine its precise cause. Accordingly, legal action for dangerous driving will be taken.
