An airline employee escaped injury when his liquid petroleum gas-powered sedan exploded in Bang Saray.
It took firefighters about 30 minutes to extinguish the flames that fully engulfed the Volvo on Sukhumvit Road near the Department of Naval Education Oct. 18.
Driver Udomsak Gongsaensri told police he bought the car used from a friend. A couple days ago he had it serviced for a fuel leak. Apparently, the shop didn’t do the job, because, as he was driving, smoke began coming out from under the hood and then a small explosion saw flames engulf the whole vehicle.
Airline worker Udomsak Gongsaensri was lucky to escape with his life when his LPG powered Volvo exploded in a fireball.
