Four people were killed, two of them children, after a pickup truck was hit by a Yala-bound train in Muang district of Phatthalung on Sunday afternoon. 

The accident occurred at a railway level crossing at Ban Khlong Trud in tambon Chaiburi. The pickup truck driven by Satian Jitboon, 56, was passing the rail crossing that did not have a barrier when the sprinter train No.41 collided with it and crashed it against a railway bridge about 200 metres away, killing him and three others on board. 

The three are Satian’s wife, Nuward Chankate, 55, his seven-year-old nephew and eight-year-old niece.
