A car travelling against the traffic crashed into a trailer truck in Nakhon Ratchasima's Non Daeng district on Wednesday night.

Police said the accident happened at 8.30pm on Jenjobthit road in Tambon Samphaniang.

The driver of the car Weerasak Kongnok, and one of his two passengers, Adisa Sonpromnok, were killed outright.

The other passenger, who has yet to be identified, was severely injured and rushed to the Non Daeng Hospital for immediate fast aid then transferred to the provincial hospital.

The truck driver, Wiwat Tankrathok, 33, said he spotted the car driving against the traffic towards his truck and applied the brakes, causing the trailer to sway and end up blocking the right lane.

He said the car continued to drive against the traffic and crashed into his truck.

Police have yet to check blood alcohol level of both the truck and car drivers and will later decide whether to press charges.
