By the time the police arrived at the scene, the pickup car was a wreck with injured people inside.

The pickup car carried a driver, two monks, and two nuns who were headed to a temple in Chiang Dao’s Wiang sub-district, where the monks and nuns stay.

A nun was found dead at the scene, whereas the other nun was severely injured.

The driver and the monks were also injured.

They all were taken to a hospital.

After inspection, the police believe the cause of the accident is that the driver was not familiar to the road which was gravelly and still under construction.
