Bunsri Pankaeo, 60, of Sarapee had been assigned by his company to drive the heavy truck so it could be used to drill for groundwater.

But police said it was unable to drive up the steep, curved mountain road in Chang Khoeng sub-district, where the accident occurred.

The body was taken to Mae Chaem hospital.
