British Man Killed Trang

A British man was killed and 11 others injured in a fatal road crash in Trat province in the early hours of Friday morning.

55-year-old Peter Flood was heading to Koh Chang with his Thai wife and nine other family members, most of whom were in the back of a pickup truck, when they collided with an oncoming vehicle in Khao Saming district at around 5am.

When police and emergency services arrived at the scene of the crash they found 12 people injured, two seriously. Pol Lt Pokkorn Muensikhiew told reporters Mr Flood died a short time later from his injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle was a 35-year-old man traveling to work in Rayong. He told police the pickup driven by Chaliew Flood, wife of the dead Brit, suddenly cut in front of him making a right turn and despite his best efforts to brake, there was no time to prevent the smash.

“I tried to brake and swerve off, but it was too late,” Mr Wattana said.

The impact of the collision threw all those in the back of her Isuzu pickup, including five children, on to the road and tore off its roof.

All the injured were taken to a local hospital for treatment with a 14-year-old girl still in a serious condition.

Police haven’t pressed any charges against either driver at this time.
