Student Bus Overturns in Doi Saket Killing 3 with many more injured
CityNews – A bus carrying 58 people lost control and veered off the edge of the road on 15th August around 5.30 p.m. killing 3 people and injuring many more.
Rescue teams soon got to the scene of the accident
Doi Saket Police Station received a call that a bus had veered off the highway close to a police check point on the Chiang Mai – Chiang Rai Road, Moo 5, Pamieng, Doi Saket. 20 rescue teams were immediately called to help.
When police arrived, they found a white and blue two level bus, license plate no. 30-0291 Nakornsawan, that had gone off the edge of the road. The bus’s occupants were mainly students from Tapanhin Municipality School in Phijit. Teachers were also on board.
In all there were 48 males and 10 females. Rescue teams and hospital staff began a rescue operation sending the injured to Doi Saket Hospital. Two bodies were found at the scene pronounced dead. They are named Jirayus Rajprachum and Jakkrapan Nakket, both male. One female, named Bonhkot Chaiyen later died from her injuries in hospital.
This bus was on its way back from a field trip in Chiang Rai, heading towards Chiang Mai. The road is well known for being difficult to navigate being that there are steep hills and sharp bends in the road. It’s presently thought that the bus breaks failed and so it lost control and went over the edge of the road.
In 2007, at almost the same spot, a bus from Chiang Rai veered off the edge of the road causing 17 deaths and 31 injuries.
