    Officers from Chom Thong Police Station, who were informed of the accident at 12.50pm, showed up with rescue staff at the accident site near the 31-kilometre marker on the road the mountain.

    Rescue staff said all five people had died, while police believe the truck flipped over due to the driverís carelessness. An official investigation into the case has been launched.

    Rumors going around North BKK is that it was a PooYai ban from Muang Ake Lok Hok Prathum Thani, along with his wife and family. Pretty well know old fashioned politician. Sompong something..

    Apparently there was more than 5 in/on the vehicle. Riding on the back of a pick up is a no no and should be made illegal again.

    Wouldn't need to be going too fast if none were wearing seatbelts.

    I thought I'd posted this already, but this isn't a brilliant advert for the safety of that vehicle.

    They're probably too busy rifling the victims' pockets.
