One killed, 29 injured as bus overturns on wet road


A bus overturned in Khon Kaen province on Sunday morning, causing one death and injuring 29 victims.

The bus driver, identified only as Sarawut, sustained injuries to his ears and face. 
“It was raining heavily at the time the accident occurred,” the 51-year-old man said. 
He told police that the bus overturned as soon as he applied the brakes to prevent the vehicle from skidding over a slippery minor crack on the Khon Kaen-Kalasin bypass road. 
Muang Khon Kaen Police Station superintendent Pol Colonel Chamlong Suwalak said the bus overturned while it was heading towards Maha Sarakham province. 
“One passenger died at the scene,” he said. 
He said 29 other people on board sustained injuries and were rushed to hospitals.
