A taxi driver and his male passenger narrowly escaped injury when the car fell into a huge crack of a cave-in road along a klong in Thanyaburi district of Pathum Thani province on Monday.
The cabbie, 54-year old Boonlom Pongsamran, later told the media that as he was driving his Toyota on Thanyaburi-Lam Lookka road to bring a passenger to his home in Thanyaburi district he noticed the road ahead of him was cracking and collapsing.
He said that his car fell into a huge crack, prompting him and the passenger to quickly exit from the car and run for their lives. Both escaped unhurt.
Highway officials said that about 80 metres of the road caved in about two metres deep. They blamed the sharp drop of water in Klong 14 for causing the road to collapse.
