A devastating accident occurred on Mittraphap Road in Nakhon Ratchasima in which two people lost their lives. A 79-year-old Dutchman was driving back to Udon Thani province with his 49-year-old son. Unfortunately, the car spun out of control and crashed into a concrete barrier. Local authorities suspect that the driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel.
The impact proved fatal for both father and son, while the passenger next to him survived with minor injuries. Rescue teams were forced to use cutting machinery to remove the bodies from the wreckage.
