Driver under meth influence crashes bus into truck
A bus, driven by a man under the influence of meth-amphetamine, rear-ended a truck in Angthong province on Sunday morning, injuring about 10 Myanmar passengers.
Pol Lieutenant Chatchai Chaiya said the victims had sustained slight injuries and had already received first aid.
“The bus driver claimed he fell asleep behind the wheel. But after being grilled, he confessed to taking one meth-amphetamine tablet before hitting the road,” Chatchai said.
The accident took place on the Asian Highway, while the bus carrying 50 Myanmar passengers was on its way to Tak province where the passengers planned to celebrate the Songkran Festival.
“Our bus swerved right and left before crashing into a truck,” one of the bus passengers said.
