18 kindergarten students injured when pickup truck slams into a roadside tree
Eighteen kindergarten students were injured, five of them in serious condition, after a modified pickup truck in which they were travelling crashed into a roadside tree in Tha Sala district of Nakhon Si Thammarat today (Wednesday).

The accident took place on the Tha Sala-U tapao road in Tambon Pothong, Tha Sala district as the school bus which was modified from a pickup truck was on its way to Ubon Witthaya kindergarten school.

Rescue workers who arrived at the scene quickly sent the injured students to Tha Sala district hospital and other nearby hospitals.

Meanwhile, Tha Sala district police detained the driver, 29-year old Mr Kanudit Chueychu, for questioning. He claimed that he lost control of the vehicle when eventually rammed into a roadside tree.

Pol Cpt Pittaya Tevadet, the inquiry police officer of Tha Sala district police, said that if it was found out that the driver was careless in driving, he would face charge of reckless driving, causing injuries to the other people.

There's a massive opening for brake manufacturers here. It does appear that the majority of brakes fitted to vehicles just do not work!!!!

The Chinese must have some serious life insurance premiums to pay out before they come to Thailand. Odds on coming back? not good!
