40 Passengers in Tour Bus Get Ride of their Life in Nakhon Si Thammarat

Let’s be clear here. Brake failure and slippery roads were the culprit.

The wheels on the bus go round and round.

When: December 1st, 2020

Where: Prik subdistrict, Thungyai district, Nakhon Si Thammarat province

Perpetrators: Slippery roads and brake failure

Victims: 40 passengers, 4 injuries

What: A tour bus carrying 40 passengers flipped over into a ditch at 4AM Wednesday morning in Nakhon Si Thammarat. The bus departed from Bangkok the previous afternoon. The roads in the southern Thai province were very slippery after heavy rains and flooding. At a particularly slippery road the bus driver tried to break and the bus swerved, flipped, and rolled over on its side. There were 4 reported injuries, none serious, and no deaths from the accident.
