A Chinese tourist was killed and two others injured when a car crashed into a tree standing in a ditch in Khanu Waralaksaburi district late on Sunday night.
Pol Lt Awut Guedyindi, who has been assigned to investigate the case, told local media that the fatal crash occurred on Phahon Yothin Road in Kamphaeng Phet’s Don Daeng subdistrict at around 22:00 on Sunday. According to an emergency phone call to police that night, at least one person had died and two others severely injured.
Pol Lt Awut, other officers from Khanu Waralaksaburi Provincial Police Station and additional rescue volunteers were immediately dispatched to the scene, Moo 7, where they found a very badly damaged silver Honda car with the license plate ษก 4157 Bangkok in a ditch next to the road.
Three men in a life-threatening condition were found trapped inside the wreckage of the sedan. Two of them, Mr Zhou Wu Shou (50) and Mr Shan Wan Ho (51) were rushed to Khanu Woralaksaburi Hospital. The 48-year-old driver of the car, Mr Xiao Deng, had already died by the time rescue workers arrived.
Pol Lt Awut has already determined that the three tourists had rented the car while on a business trip in the province. Investigators surmise that, while approaching a road curve at speed, the driver lost control, the car violently swerved off the road and ended up in the ditch.
The investigation continues.
