Train slammed into tour bus in Thailand



Location: Nakhon Pathom, Thailand.
Date: 3 April 2016, Time: About 7:30am.

The bus was taking a group of workers from a nearby factory in Nakhon Pathom province west of Bangkok to the southern island of Koh Samui for a holiday trip, according to local police officer Thanachot Shinwongsa.

"Three have been reported dead, all Thais. The number of injuries is not yet confirmed," he said.

"The scene was cleared and the train is back in service."

Video footage of the accident in Nakhon Chaisri district showed the bus slowly crossing the railway when a train ploughed into it at full speed, whipping the vehicle around.

There appeared to be no lights or other warning devices at the intersection, a common failing at many unregulated road crossings in Thailand.

Other cars were seen driving over the tracks alongside the bus just seconds before the collision. Thailand's roads are the world's second most dangerous in terms of per capita deaths.
