Capt Jarus Laemphan of the Kamala Police was informed of the accident at 10pm.

Police and rescue workers arrived to find the truck on its side near the turnoff to Kamala Waterfall, with many boxes on San Miguel beer spilled – and crushed and broken – by the side of the road.

The truck driver Pichet Seththaka, 24, from Pathum Thani, was still at the scene. He had suffered only minor injuries.

The truck had come to a rest on its side after hitting two trees, and levelling a "Reduce Speed" sign, Capt Jarus noted.

Police were continuing their investigation into the accident before pressing any charges, Capt Jarus noted in his report.

All the beer will be consumed in Kamala, before pressing charges. Please, overturn same location again next time.  Hahaha.
Don't do this kind of delivery at night times. Understand why?
