The truck flipped and landed on its roof, scattering fish all over the road and bursting a water pipe at the roadside.
The driver, Yodsiri Saithong, 20, received head injuries, though not severe. Two others in the cab with him escaped with cuts and bruises.
Yodsiri told police that he had only recently started work as a driver. He was driving from Chalong to Phang Nga when he lost control because “the truck was too heavy”.
