A British man and his elderly father died and the man's mother was seriously hurt when their pickup truck crashed head-on with a trailer truck on a curve in Phanom district of this southern province on Friday night.

An overturned 18-wheel trailer truck carrying wood pellets, with a Nakhon Pathom licence plate, was found lying on its side about 10 metres away. Driver Parit Limpairoh, 23, was waiting for police at the scene, which was very dark.

A police investigation found that the 44-year-old driver and his 82-year-old father were sitting in the front seat and the driver's 78-year-old mother was sitting in the cab. They were on the way to Phuket when their vehicle lost control at the curve, causing it to crash head-on with the trailer truck travelling in the opposite direction.
