NAKHON SI THAMMARAT: A woman was killed and two other people injured after a speeding pickup truck rammed into nine vehicles parked along a road in Muang district of this southern province on Saturday night, police said.

Pol Capt Adul Chusen, a Chamao police investigator, said the accident occurred at about 8.30pm near Ban Chamao. The nine vehicles belonged to people arriving at a temple opposite the Chamao police station to attend a funeral.

Three people, two women and a man, were injured in the incident. They were rushed to Maharat Nakhon Si Thammarat Hospital. One of the two women, Sirirat Raekchamnong, 51, died later at the hospital.

Footage from a security camera showed a black Mitsubishi pickup trying to overtake a big bike at high speed and then crashing into the nine vehicles, causing one of them to burst into flames.

The driver of the pickup, who was not identified, was detained for questioning and further legal action.
