Another train accident in Thon Buri

A short-haul train encountered an accident at the Taladphu train station Saturday morning, injuring two persons.

Police and State Railway of Thailand governor Prapat Chongsanguan were at the station at 11.30am. The injured were taken to Samitivej Hospital Thonburi.

The third of four carriages of Train No. 4322 (Mahachai-Wong Wian Yai) hit the station roof. Train driver Jaru Kanchanaphan attributed the accident to the sinking of the rail track. The third carriage bounced and hit the roof.

Prapat said he would rush on tackling the problem that hurt the public train service. A number of train-related accidents have been reported this year.

He also promised that the SRT would take responsibility for the medical expenses for the injured.
