Actor's daughter killed in road accident

The youngest daughter of a well-known actor sustained fatal injuries when her Mercedes Benz plunged from an elevated overpass in Bangkok Thursday morning. She died in hospital while her friend was killed instantly.



Matawee Wattanakul, 21, passed away at the Paolo Memorial Phaholyothin Hospital after suffering brain injuries, a fractured skull and lung damage.

Also killed in the accident was Jakpong Jarernphon, 22.

They were returning from a revision session arranged by their classmates when the accident took place. The exam is scheduled to take place Friday.

The victims were fourthyear students of the Kasetsart University's Faculty of Humanities.

Mathawee's father, actor Kowit Wattanakul could not hold back tears as he talked about her death.

"It's the biggest loss of my life," he said.

The loving father said he just kissed her cheek when she left home Wednesday night.

"She didn't want to leave home that night but her friends insisted," he said. "Finally, I gave her the permission to go to her friend's home".

Mathawee's elder sister, Mintita Wattanakul, is also famous. She is known as Mint AF3.
