Woman crushed, killed by fallen container on Ayutthaya roadside
A woman was killed when a container fell from a trailer truck on top of her while she was walking to talk to a friend in a car at the side of a road in Ayutthaya’s Uthai district early Monday, police said.
Police said the accident happened at 2,30am on the Ayutthaya-bound Rojana road in Tambon Kanharm.
Radeepat Konnak, 34, was crushed against the back of a white Honda Civic car by one end of a large container. The container also damaged the rear of the white Honda Civic as well as a black Honda Civic car parked alongside.
Kachaphan Udomchaiprasertkul, 22, the driver of the black car, said she parked her car beside the white car. Radeepat left the black car and was walking around the back of the two cars to talk to the driver of the white car when the container fell on her and damaged the rears of both cars. Police arrested the truck driver, Suban Phoson, 49, for questioning.
Suban claimed that a car cut in front of his truck and he swerved to the left to avoid it, causing the container to fall while the victim was standing at the back of the white car.
