Brake failure causes deadly crash at Yala wedding processionLegacy

A tragic accident occurred yesterday at noon when a chartered bus, part of a wedding procession, suffered brake failure and crashed into a house, killing one person and injuring 22 others, four critically, in Yala province.

The incident unfolded on a road near a waterfall in Ban Haer, Tharn To district, where the bus, hired for a wedding convoy, was bringing guests from Pattani province to join the bridal procession. As the vehicle approached the bride’s house, the driver lost control due to the brake malfunction, reported KhaoSod.

Despite the driver’s attempts to manage the vehicle for over one kilometre, the situation forced a critical decision. Faced with a sheer drop on one side of the road, the driver swerved to collide with a house on the opposite side, preventing what could have been a far more catastrophic incident involving a plunge into the ravine.

In related news, a terrifying incident unfolded as a crane lorry’s brakes failed in Nakhon Sawan province, causing it to veer off and collide with roadside shops, resulting in severe damage. The accident, which occurred in September last year, left a noodle shop owner scalded by boiling water. The driver, Phiphatt, denied consuming alcohol before the incident. The crane, owned by a company, plowed into several shops, including a pork and rice shop, a noodle shop, and a grocery store, as well as a car repair garage and three motorcycles. One casualty was reported, with the injured woman receiving immediate medical attention. The driver explained the failure of the vehicle’s air system, leading to loss of control. Initial investigations led to his custody for further questioning. The extent of the damage is yet to be determined, but the crane company assured compensation for all damages, attributing the incident to a sudden air pump system failure.
