According to their figures it was the worst single day death toll since the so called deadly days of New Year.

They reported that 1,294 people have died in Thai road accidents since the start of the year.

This figure will rise as those that die in hospitals and other deaths are added to the lists. 

Daily News showed a video of one accident on Monday – a car turning right in to the path of a truck. 

They also reported on the death of a mobile crane lorry driver whose crane hit power lines while he was lifting ceramic tiles on a roadside. 

The resulting electric shock and fire killed 29 year old Watchara Khongsathit.
