A truck driver was injured when he blew a tire, crashed and sparked a fire in Takhiantia.
Sophon Amornteeravej, 34, was pulled from the burning six-wheeled truck on the highway frontage road and transported to Laem Chabang Hospital.
Witness Chalermphon Kaewseng, 32, said Sophon told him that the cargo truck blew a tire. He lost control and crashed into an electricity pole, knocking it down and dropping live power lines onto the truck. That sparked a devastating fire that destroyed the vehicle.
