RAYONG – April 30, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; at 5 p.m., a report of an accident of a crane truck colliding with a gasoline truck was received by Pol. Lt. Nitinan Srirooj, investigation officer, Mabtaphood police station, Amphur Meuang, Rayong province.

The collision occurred at I-8 road in front of Bayer Thai Co., Ltd. in Mabtaphood industrial estate, Amphur Meuang, Rayong province.

At the scene, arriving officers found a yellow Scannia crane truck had collided with the 18-wheel yellow Tadano gasoline truck. The collision had caused a large amount of Sohol 95 petrol gas to leak out.

The police coordinated with the fire truck of PTT Global Chemical (public) Co., Ltd. to clean the road with the combined efforts of the truck, the company’s safety employees, and the contractor.

The cleanup was causing a traffic jam, so the officers had to change the traffic route to direct the cars toward an alternate route.

The police investigation revealed that Mr. Chaophong Phakphum, age 40, was the driver of 18-wheel gasoline truck that contained 45,000 liters of gasoline. He was driving the truck from the oil storage of PTT Global Chemical (public) Co., Ltd. to deliver to customers in the upcountry.

When he approached the spot of the incident, his vehicle collided violently with a crane truck from Bayer Thai Co., driven by Mr. Beaw Boonchato, age 75. The crash caused 9,000 liters of oil to leak out, and created a foul odor all over the area. No one was injured or died in the accident.

Initially, police officers investigated the bystanders who saw the incident, and then restrained Mr. Beaw, the driver of crane truck, to charge him with an accusation and prosecute according to the law.

Police contacted the insurance companies of both sides to inspect for the damage cost. Officers closed all gutters to prevent the oil stain from flowing into the public canal. They helped coordinate the cleanup of the road until it was reopened.
