Published: 6/06/2009 at 12:00 AM



KRABI : At least 16 passengers were killed and more than 36 injured when a bus veered off a road in Krabi's Plai Phraya yesterday.


The accident took place on Road No. 415 around 6am when the eighth bus in a convoy of 12 skidded off the road.


The bus smashed into a tree on the side of the road before it overturned.


The 12 buses were taking 576 teachers, housewives, local administration officials, and public health volunteers from Samut Prakan on an educational trip to visit drug-free villages in Phuket.


Rescue workers said 16 people died - 12 at the scene, the other four at hospitals.


More than 36 seriously injured passengers were sent to six local hospitals.


The names of casualties had not been released at press time.


Samut Prakan governor Kwanchai Wongnitikorn said the province's officials had sought assistance from the Krabi Provincial Administration Organisation.


Meanwhile, Samut Prakan PAO officials were yesterday sent to the province to identify the victims to spare their families the ordeal.
