    Van crashes into ditch, 3 dead

    RATCHABURI - A passenger van heading to Bangkok ran off the road when a tyre burst and plunged into a ditch, killing three people and injuring nine others, police said on Tuesday morning.

    Pol Maj Gen Pongsakorn Khemmarat of Muang Ratchaburi police station said the vehicle was a white Toyota van running between Bangkok and Petchaburi with the licence plate 14-3974 Bangkok.

    The three fatalities were a man and two women. Two of them were named as Manote Ritdet and Bongkotcharat Rattanayenjai. Police have not identified the second woman yet.

    All three passengers died from drowning.

    Pol Maj Gen Pongsakorn said most of the nine injured were in critical condition and are now in hospital.

    Witnesses told police that they saw the passenger van travelling at high speed when its right rear tire burst, causing the vehicle to smash into a tree and careen into the ditch.

    Jiraset Yuangsa-ard, the driver, was injured and will be questioned after he is discharged from hospital.

    A rear tyre blew out on a Bangkok-Phetchaburi public transport van, sending it crashing into a tree and plunging into ditch in Ratchaburi's Muang district yesterday, killing three people and injured nine others.

    After the accident at 7am on Phetkasem Highway in tambon Angthong, police found the three bodies - two women and a man - trapped in the submerged van. The injured were taken to Ratchaburi Hospital. Police have arrested the van driver, Jiraset Yuangsa-ard.

    On Monday night in Buri Ram’s Muang district, a pickup truck carrying Surin funeral guests back to work in Bangkok lost control and plunged into a roadside ditch, killing one woman and injuring nine others including a three-year-old girl. Police suspected the truck driver dozed off behind the wheel.

    In Ratchaburi’s Pak Tho district, a sedan crashed into a tractor, killing one person and wounding six others yesterday.

    Police said the Nissan Sunny, overtaking another car from the left, crashed into the rear of a tractor carrying straw on the Phet-kasem Highway in tambon Wang Manao at 11am. Cheun Meena, 75, died after falling from the tractor, which then ran over him.

    Rear tyre blow outs don't cause this type of accident.
