A DEADLY collision between a tour bus and an 18-wheel trailer truck killed at least 16 people and injured more than 30 in Wang Nam Khiao, in the South of Thailand.
Initial reports from Thailandese rescue workers said that the driver of the tour bus may have lost control of the vehicle on a downhill curve and invaded the opposite lane, ending up face to face with a trailer truck coming from the opposite direction.
The bus, which was heading to Thailand’s province of Kalasin after a sight-seeing trip in Chanthaburi, a touristic area located in eastern Thailand, was carrying about 50 people.
The impact of the collision sent both vehicles to plunge into the roadside ditch.
Authorities reported that six men and ten women have lost their lives.
More than 30 people have been injured, many of them seriously.
Rescue workers said that many people were trapped inside the wreckage when they arrived on location.
