The local rescue team was notified on 29 September 2021 of an accident involving a truck carrying fruits. According to a report, the truck fell 10 meters from the tollway onto the ground below.
Both the driver and his wife survived and only received minor injuries. Witnesses revealed that what happened to the couple was incredible. The truck, on the other hand, was beyond repair.
The couple had their seatbelts fastened and the airbags functioned properly.
When police arrived at the scene, they saw the gray truck crushed on the ground surrounded by many fruits.
According to Somchai Traipom, 34, the driver of the truck, they picked up fruit from Chanthaburi Province and were heading to Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. They were driving on the tollway when there was an accident and traffic was forming. Somchai decided to exit the tollway but when he arrived at the curve Somchai lost control of the vehicle and drove off the tollway, Thai Residents reported.
After hitting the ground, the couple climbed out of the truck. They believe that apart from wearing seatbelts and functioning airbags, their lives were saved due to the power of a famous monk in Thailand.
The local rescue team confirmed that both are ok and their injuries are minor.
