Six passengers were injured when a pickup truck knocked their bus off the road and into a tree in Si Sa Ket on Tuesday morning.

Police said the accident occurred at 6.30am at an intersection on Highway 225 in Muang Si Sa Ket.

The bus was transporting 13 passengers from Bangkok to Ubon Ratchathani. The injured were taken to Si Sa Ket Hospital.
