Two people were killed in a pick-up that was doing a U-turn on Pahonyothin Road (KM marker 179-180) in Lopburi’s Khok Samrong district. 

The abbot of Wat Prabat Nam Phu who was travelling in a van was injured. 

Dr Thanapong Jinwong told Naew Na that colored markings in the middle of the road were a contributing factor in the crash. 

He said that the markings were confusing and led to overtaking problems as vehicles waited to make U-turns on the busy road.
