The director of a Phetchabun wildlife sanctuary was killed on Tuesday morning when his pickup truck was caught in whirling floodwaters.

Sudjit Khorthong, head of the Phupha Daeng Wildlife Sanctuary in Lom Sak district, was in nearby Tambon Pak Chong, on his way to a meeting in Phitsanulok, when his truck was swept away, police said.

The truck was found surrounded by floodwater at 5am, but the current was so strong that Sudjit’s body could not immediately be retrieved.
