A chartered bus carrying employees from Bangkok's Thaweewattana District Office to a seminar in Krabi province lost control on a curve and overturned yesterday in Surat Thani's Khian Sa district. Forty-three people were hurt in the accident. Meanwhile, an 18-wheeled trailer truck carrying eucalyptus wood collided with another 18-wheeler at Chong Tako in Ta Phraya district, Sa Kaew province - before another gasoline-transporting trailer truck rammed into them. One person died in the accident and two were seriously injured. The mid-road crash caused traffic jams three kilometers long and took three hours to clear. The three-vehicle accident took place at 6am on Highway 384 in tambon Thab Rat, instantly killing the first truck driver Kriangkrai Saenkhamma. The two injured drivers were taken to Ta Phraya Hospital.
