14 killed as truck crashes in Thailand mountainous area

Bishkek (AKIpress) - thai At least 14 people were killed Wednesday when a truck carrying local villagers crashed in a mountainous region of north-west Thailand, police and hospital officials said to AFP.

"The truck lost control and smashed into a car in front as well as an oncoming bus," said Lieutenant-Colonel Patipan Mahatthanavisan in Tak province.
