The driver reportedly disappeared. 

Thai Rath reported that relatives and school officials at Kabinburi Hospital were in tears as 5 year old Wilasinee Phengkham or “Nano” succumbed to her injuries. 

Fifty five year old grandmother Somyong Srikong is in a critical condition. 

They were on the same bicycle going along the Nong Sang to Wang Tha Chang Road. 

They were hit by the Mitsubishi just fifty yards from the Ban Kung Prachasawan School when little Nano was a child in a Kindergarten 3 class. 

Police found the Mitsubishi off the road with a smashed front. The driver was nowhere to be found after the accident.

It turns out she is the daughter of the former director of the school when Nano was a pupil. Praphon Khamkrai, 72, said his daughter was on her way to her bank job in Kabinburi and she probably fell asleep at the wheel. 

First on the scene were 49 year old Sujin Ornkinree and a nurse who gave immediate first aid and called the rescue services. 

Sujin said that there were no brake marks on the road.
