A Lopburi woman who swerved her truck to avoid a snake in the road killed herself and hurt seven others when she collided head-on with a bus.
Panghom Maingam, 45, died and seven inside a factory employee van were injured in the June 3 wreck on Rong Po Road in Takhiantia June 3.
A quality-control chief at factory in Takhiantia, Panghom drove her Toyota Vigo straight into oncoming traffic to avoid a snake, said bus driver Prawit Siripee, 38.
The snake was already dead.
Prawit also swerved trying to avoid the crash and flipped the van and skid off the roadway.
