PRACHIN BURI: An eight-vehicle pile-up at a traffic light killed one person and injured another on a major highway in Muang district on Wednesday evening.

The crash involved four big trucks, two pickups and two cars and occurred on a four-lane bypass of central Prachin Buri city.

Orapin Roongthanawut, 44, said she was slowing down her Honda City car to stop at a red light when an 18-wheel trailer truck crashed into the rear. Her car was pushed forward into a 10-wheel truck, which then crushed a pickup truck against a truck in front of it, with a continuing domino effect.

Montri Nootcharoen, the 43-year-old pickup truck driver, and his father-in-law were severely injured. Montri later died at Chaophraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital.
