A 5-year-old boy was orphaned after his parents and brother were killed when their car hit a utility pole, skid into a drainage canal and burst into flames.

The mother, father and young boy killed in the Nov. 24 crash on Highway 331 in Khao Maikaew were not immediately identified. A 5-year-old boy thrown from the Nissan Note survived with injuries and is being treated at Banglamung Hospital.

Witness Chairat Tienchana, 26, said the three other family members were trapped in the vehicle as flames popped up and quickly spread, enveloping the entire car, despite efforts from bystanders to douse the flames with water.
