A woman returning from a late-night flight died after crashing her car into a tree in Sattahip.
Rattiyakorn Satjung, 37, died at the scene of the accident on Sukhumvit Road in front of MG Car Center in Najomtien around 3:30 a.m. Jan. 15.
Her Bangkok-registered Ford Fiesta first hit a guidepost before careening into a Burmese padauk tree. Rattiyakorn’s luggage and passport were ejected from the car.
Police speculated that Rattiyakorn had just returned from overseas on a late-night flight and fell asleep while driving home.
