Motorists watched in horror in Chonburi as a 60 year old motorcyclist trapped under the wheels of an 18 wheel truck was burnt alive.
Thongdaeng Daothaisong from Korat, a security guard at the nearby industrial estate, had ended up under the truck rupturing fuel lines.
Truck driver Pongwarit Chaitamma, 22, ran for his life as his vehicle burst into flames.
Fire services took half an hour to bring the blaze under control as traffic on the road leading up to a bridge over the motorway was held up.
The accident happened in the Phan Thong area of Chonburi.
Pongwarit told Thai Rath that he thought the motorcyclist may have been hit by another vehicle causing him to be propelled under his wheels. – Thai Rath
