Corrections Department director-general Naras Savestanan said the incident happened at 8:55am today (Oct 11) at the court in Lang Suan district. Ten inmates were brought to the court on a pickup truck of the Lang Suan prison.

According to early reports, the prison warder who drove the truck had been reckless and left the key in the ignition while escorting the inmates to the court building, he said.

As court police had yet to come out to take them into custody, the inmates ran towards the gate of the court to escape. One of them ran out of the court through the opened gate. The second inmate was caught just outside the gate which was then closed.

Another three inmates managed to take the truck, drove it through the closed gate and got away. In the process, they ran over the inmate arrested there.

Mr Naras said he would go to Chumphon to investigate the case.

The three inmates were identified as Tharathip Permlarp, Krisada Ketnui and Pichit Klin-ocha.

They had been arrested for alleged car theft.
