Paul Plud

A massive road accident involving several cars in Trat province left 10 people severely injured and killed one British foreigner.

The accident occurred at around 5:00 in the early morning of August 7 at an intersection in Khao Saming district, Trat province. Officers from Khao Saming Police Station told Trat TV they rushed to the scene in Saen Tung area after they received a call from a person who had witnessed the accident.

At the crash site, police and rescue workers discovered a total of 11 victims. Among them were two severely injured Thais and one 50-year-old British foreigner, Paul Plud, who had died before rescue workers arrived at the scene.

On the road they found two demolished cars. An early investigation revealed that the car driven by Cheleao Paul, Mr Paul’s 33-year-old wife, had been en route from their hometown in Nong Bua Lamphu province to Koh Chang for a family holiday. The driver of the second car was coming from the island and was heading towards Rayong province.

As Mrs Paul was turning right at an intersection, she did not see the car that was coming from the opposite direction at high speed. Both cars crashed in a hand-on collision.

Rescue workers attempted to resuscitate Mr Paul for nearly 30 minutes but failed to save his life. The remaining victims were brought to Khao Saming Hospital.
