Over Loaded Baht Bus with Student hanging off Back


BANGKOK – This morning at 8:30, a baht bus carrying school students crashed into a six-wheeler truck at Petchkasem Road in Bangkok. Twenty two students were wounded and one of them died from injuries sustained in the accident.

Reports indicate that the baht bus was used as a replacement vehicle to carry students from the Wat Nakprasit School, as the school van had broken down and was undergoing maintenance. The impact of the crash caused the roof of the baht bus to be ripped off.

Police investigations confirm that the baht bus driver had been speeding and was earlier racing another vehicle, which caused the driver to lose control and crash into the truck. The driver escaped unharmed and fled the scene. Authorities are now doing whatever they can to pursue the driver in order to bring him to justice.
