Two cars were damaged when a wheel flew off a tour bus carrying Chinese tourists in Najomtien.

A Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by Radsamee Kulalai, 45, and a Toyota Vigo plate driven by Jamnien Sangngam, 37, both suffered dents. No one was injured.

Bus driver Eakachai Seranon, 60, said he was bound for a Sattahip tourist attraction when he heard a strange noise from the back of the coach. He then heard the accident on Sukhumvit Road at the Ban Amphur intersection March 12.

Inspection showed the 8 lug nuts holding the wheel had sheared off.
