Chiang Mai bus crash: ‘Driver was speeding to escape earlier accident’

PETALING JAYA:  At least 13 Malaysian tourists were killed and many others injured when their bus hit a power pole and ran off a mountainous road in Chiang Mai’s Doi Saket district at 11.30am on Sunday.

Police said the bus was running on national highway No 118 through Ban Pang Fan village between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai provinces in the North when the driver lost control at the 43th kilometre.

Rescue worker Uthai Pollaharn said the bus was fleeing after colliding with a car in the Danmae Kajan area of Chiang Rai. The driver of the car, Krissana Fongdawirat, was not hurt, so he chased after the bus and alerted police only to find that it had crashed.

When the bus arrived at the area, it hit another car before skidding off the road, rammed the pole and slammed into a big rock and trees.

Police found the bus severely damaged. Rescue workers used tools and equipment to cut parts of the vehicle to get to the dead and injured victims.

Malaysian ambassador Datuk Nazirah Hussain confirmed that 13 Malaysians died in the incident.

Nazirah said Thai police will not be able to release details of the victims tonight after the investigations were completed.

Nazirah said in the incident at Doi Saket district, the bus with 22 Malaysians collided with a Nissan truck just after noon. Four others are in critical condition and another five sustained other injuries.

Besides the Malaysians, the bus operated by Weerapan Tour was carrying three other passengers, a tour guide, a bus conductor and the driver, identified as Somporn Bualuang, 58, police said.
