Thirty-one teachers injured after their bus slams into rear of gas tanker


A bus carrying a large group of teachers slammed into the back of a gas tanker; killing the driver and injuring thirty-one teachers. 

In a report from Daily News, the group of teachers from Rajabhat Mahasarakham University were lucky not to be burned alive after their bus smashed into the back of a gas tanker earlier today in Nakhon Pathom.

Police rushed to a U-turn on the Kamphaeng Sae – Prathaen Road where the accident occurred.

Firefighters also came and immediately hosed down the area — fearing an explosion as fuel flowed out of the back of the tanker.

Large axes were used to break the windows to get the injured teachers and educational staff who were then taken to the hospital.

Sasatra, 42, the driver from Mahasarakham, was pronounced dead at the scene while thirty-one teachers were injured.

The teachers who were mostly asleep when the accident occurred were on their way to Kanchanaburi, the report said, adding that the driver probably fell asleep at the wheel or didn’t notice the tanker as the area was dark.

The tanker was stationary at the time preparing to make a U-turn heading for a gas depot.
