Police were called to the scene, in front of Wat Srisoonthorn (Wat Lipon) on Thepkrasattri Rd, at 2:30pm.

Thalang Police and rescue workers arrived to find a Yamaha Fino jammed under the truck.

Also jammed under the truck were 15-year-old Andaman Tunpeuan and his mum, Prapa Chumak, 42.

Standing by beside the truck was its driver, Sunya Paenson, 42.

“I delivered goods to a customer near Super Cheap in Rassada this morning and I after I made the delivery I started to fall asleep at the wheel, so I pulled over to take a nap. That was at about 8-9am,” Mr Sunya told police.

“I woke up to hear the sound of something scraping along the road and hit my truck from the back. I got out to see two people and a motorbike were all stuck under the truck,” he said.

Rescue workers recovered the two from under the truck and treated them with first aid before taking them to Thalang Hospital.

Andaman and his mum Ms Prapa both escaped only minor cuts and scratches.

Both of them were wearing helmets, police noted.

Mr Andaman told police that he was driving the motorbike from Phuket Town back home to Mai Khao when the accident happened.

“I fell asleep and lost control of the motorbike,” he said.

Police have yet to press any charges, and noted they were “still continuing their investigation”.

ematt, the thai laws could have you for defamation,  using "hateful" incorrectly to discribe !Ben, perhaps you should google "hate", "hateful".

The youth should be charged, having admitted to driving while tired, with reckless, dangerous, driving, indangering the lives of others and damage, to private property, just to name a few.

The mother should be given a slap, across the back of the head, for allowing him to drive.

Wow Ben, are the insults really necessary?

Maybe he was heading home from a night job - you don't know. Personally, I'm glad to hear that neither he nor his mother were seriously hurt. And sorry to hear that you feel the need to be so hateful toward someone who presumably you don't even know.

Well, I'm sure this 15 year old rocket scientist had a valid motorbike license, but I'm amazed how you can be that dull-headed that you can fall asleep while riding a motorbike at 9 AM.  I have a good description of this dope, but since I can't use the eff word...I'll just leave it at that.
