The Phuket Express reports that Pabon Police and local rescue workers arrived on the scene to find a damaged minivan on the road, behind a trailer truck. The driver of the truck, named as 48 year old Warakorn Mueanwai, told paramedics that he had parked on the side of the road about a minute before the minivan crashed into him.
