Durian Disaster As Driver Nods Off And Crashes

Hundreds of durian were left scattered across the southern ring road after the driver of a 10-wheel truck fell asleep and crashed in Samut Prakan early Monday morning

The accident happened on Kanchanaphisek Road at around 4.30am leaving the truck on its side and its cargo strewn all over two lanes.

Workers took several hours to gather up the fruit, tow away the truck and make safe a sign pole that was left unstable after being hit by the lorry.

The truck driver told cops he was heading to Chanthaburi province and dozed off behind the wheel.
