Maj Nattaya Suphanpong from the Phuket City Police was called at 12:31am this morning to respond to an accident near Siam Niramit on bypass road where a vehicle had crashed into an electricity pylon. Police were told two foreign men were unconscious and trapped inside the vehicle.
Police arrived at the scene with Kusoldharm rescue workers to find a wrecked Honda smashed into a roadside pylon. Workers had to use the jaws-of-life to free the two men who were already dead by the time help had arrived.
Maj Nattaya said, “We were told that the car was heading north at high speed when the driver lost control and crashed. However, we will investigate further to find out if this was the true cause of the accident.”
The bodies of both men were taken to Vachira Hospital.
