Eight women were killed and two others injured, including a 9-year-old girl, when a passenger van, in which they were travelling on a pilgrimage, flipped and ploughed into a roadside ditch in Thailand’s north-eastern province of Khon Kaen last night.
Emergency services, who attended the scene of the accident on a bypass in the Muang district, said that six people were found dead at the scene. Four were injured and were rushed to a hospital in the district, where two were later pronounced dead.
