Three peo­ple were killed on Satur­day night when their pickup trucks col­lided head-on in Lam­phun prov­ince.

Sawaeng Paramee, 52, died at the scene. His wife Chalita Paramee, also 52, and the driver of the other pickup, 50-year-old Nokim Yo­jina, died on the way to hos­pi­tal.

Po­lice de­ter­mined that Sawaeng was haul­ing lon­gans on a two-lane sec­tion of Li-Lam­phun Road, ac­com­pa­nied by his wife.

Po­lice were to run tests to see if al­co­hol was a fac­tor.
