No injuries as prefab concrete slabs slide off Phuket truck

PHUKET: A truck carrying 25 prefabricated concrete sheets to a worksite in Chalong spilled seven of the prefab slabs onto the road in front of a school on the busy Chao Fa West Rd in Chalong today (May 26).

No persons were harmed in the accident, which occurred in front of the “Banchalong School”, confirmed police.

Workers took about three hours to clear the road by using a crane before traffic flow returned to normal, said Capt Woradet Chuguea of the Chalong Police.

“Officers from the Chalong Police and the Wichit Police joined efforts to direct traffic around the accident,” he said.

The truck driver, 46-year-old Somboon Puangnoon, told police he was delivering the concrete slabs, which weighed about 25 tons, from a company in Thalang to a site in Soi Yod Sanae 2.

“When I arrived at the bend, I could feel the truck leaning to the left. I told my passenger to check and he saw that the concrete sheets had nearly slid off the back of the truck.

“I asked my passenger to get out of the vehicle and tell motorists to move away from the vehicle because I was afraid that the concrete sheets might fall down onto them.

“After the vehicles were clear, the concrete sheets fell down. The slabs hit the guardrail. Luckily, no one was hurt,” he said.

Chalong Mayor Samran Jindapon noted, “This accident happened because more weight was loaded onto one side.

“Luckily, no one was injured. I will use this accident as an example to educate others in order to prevent the same thing from happening in the future,” he added.

There are many things to ensure that All heavy duty Vehicle Drivers need to be properly trained? Too many HGV drivers & Public Service Vehicles Coaches & Mini Bus Drivers do not know how too load their vehicles or drive them safely! They prefer to blame the road & weather conditions. Instead of reducing speed in bad weather conditions?
