It happened around 5.45 am yesterday morning.

An Isuzu pick up with its roof shorn off was lying in the central ditch facing the wrong way. 

It had hit a lamppost in the center of the road before spinning. 

Three young people were dead at the scene. 

On the back seat was a 19 year old woman. 

Propelled out of the vehicle and lying in water mixed with fuel were two males, one 23 and one 17 years old. Both were from Ratchaburi. 

Police said that the pick-up had been fitted with a dash cam but this had come off. 

They were trying to find it in the water of the drain and hoped it might indicate exactly what had happened. 

Accidents on Thailand’s roads can legitimately be described as carnage, notes Thaivisa. 

About 24,000 to 26,000 are believed to be killed annually on the nation’s roads making it one of the worst for road accidents in the world.
