A family of three died when their pickup truck smashed into a utility pole and flipped over into a ditch.
Pvt. Prommin Pommeungkwa, 22, his wife Anongsri Pommmeungkwa, 32, and her 2-year-old child died in the May 3 accident on Sukhumvit Road near Wat Bannakao. The two adults were trapped in the Isuzu Dmax while the toddler was ejected.
Emergency technicians work to free the bodies of Pvt. Prommin Pommeungkwa and his wife Anongsri from the wreckage.
Prommin had been stationed at the 2nd Engineer’s Regiment in Nakhon Ratchasima while Anongsri worked at the Fujiko factory in Laem Chabang.
A friend of the family, Supansa Srion, 30, said Prommin had come to visit his wife and child for the Labor Day holiday. They had left a party at Anongsri’s house and were driving to continue partying at Supansa’s home.
Police speculated Prommin was speeding and lost control, hitting the pole and flipping the vehicle into a drainage ditch.
