An accident involving 10 vehicles sparked spectacular fires and killed five people Saturday night on the Mittraphap Highway in Klang Dong district of Nakhon Ratchasima. 

Police said they got first reports of the pile-up at around 9pm, and rushed to the scene. Officers found a BMW on fire, and called firemen. It took nearly half an hour to extinguish the blaze, after which three charred bodies were found. Police said they believed all were members of the same family.

Another two dead people found in a delivery truck carrying dairy products. Four survivors of the accident were taken to nearby hospitals.
