Written by on 11/10/2020

A train has collided with a tour bus in Thailand killing at least 17 people and injuring 30 others, officials have said.

The bus, with 65 passengers on board, was crossing a railway track in Chacheongsao, 80 kilometers (50 miles) east of Bangkok, when the train hit it.

It was travelling from Samut Prakan province to a Buddhist temple in Chachoengsao.

District chief officer Prathueng Yookassem told Thailand’s PBS TV: “It was raining, perhaps, the driver did not see the train.”

The injured were taken to two hospitals for treatment.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
