PHAYAO – Four people died and seven injured when a 10-wheeled truck rammed a Chiang Khong-bound bus Wednesday night, sending them both into a ravine. 

The truck-trailer loaded with red grapes was on its way to Bangkok while the coach, with 11 passengers, was travelling to Chiang Rai's Chiang Khong district when the accident occurred around 8pm in tambon Huai Lan of Dok Kham Tai district.

Karn Phothong, 49, who was driving a tanker truck behind the coach on Sai Phayao-Chaing Kham road, told police that the 10-wheeler lost control as it sped down a slope, hitting the Sombat Tour coach, which was going up the hill.
