Road accidents kill 325 in Thailand’s New Year’s highway carnage

Bangkok – Road accidents claimed 325 lives during the first six of Thailand’s seven deadly days of New Year’s driving, officials said Tuesday.

Between December 29 to Monday some 3,227 road accidents occurred on Thailand’s highways, killing 325 people and injuring 3,453, according to figures released by the government’s Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department.

“Drunk driving was the leading cause of accidents, accounting for about 32 per cent of the total,” said Saowannee Maneesong, the department’s spokeswoman.

Not all of the drunk drivers were Thais.
