RATCHABURI: One person was killed and three others injured in an accident involving a 10-wheel lorry and two pickups in Photharam district of this lower Central province on Sunday, police said.

Pol Capt Sam-ang Suppatanand, a duty officer at Khao Din in Photharam district, said the accident occurred about 6.30pm on a local road near Moo 5 village in tambon Nang Kaew.

A passenger in the 10-wheel lorry, Suporn Thuengkho, 50, told police they were delivering  a load of sugarcane to Ban Pong district, travelling behind a blue four-door Isuzu pickup.

A bronze Isuzu pickup coming towards them swayed across the middle line and crashed into the four-door pickup, which was spun around by the impact and the truck ran into it, hitting it on the right side. 

The driver of the oncoming bronze pickup, identified later as Prasan Chiewchan, 58, was crushed to death inside his vehicle.

The male driver of the four-door pickup and two passengers, a man and a woman, were injured. They were admitted to Photharam Hospital.
