The incident happened yesterday morning, May 4, on the Asia Nakhon Si – Bangkok Road, in the sub-district of Cha Mai. Police and rescue workers arrived on the scene to find a guardrail had penetrated the left-hand side of the minivan.

According to the Phuket Express report, the woman’s leg had been fully severed by the collision and was found outside the vehicle. The unidentified injured were all taken to a nearby hospital for emergency treatment.
