Truck crash kills 14 people in western Thailand

BANGKOK (AP) — A governor in western Thailand says a truck crash on a dangerous mountain road has killed 14 people.

Tak provincial governor Suriya Prasatbunditya said a driver lost control of a six-wheeled truck while driving down the steep, winding road Wednesday. The truck hit three cars then slammed into a pickup truck carrying at least 10 passengers.

Suriya said both truck drivers were among the 14 killed. Two people were injured.

The crash occurred near where a double-decker bus plunged into a ravine, killing 31 people, last month.

The governor said more than 300 accidents occurred last year on the winding, hilly road frequented by buses and trucks traveling across the border to Burma.
