Police and rescue workers were called to the scene, near Wat Srisoonthorn on Thepkrasattri Rd in Srisoonthorn, Thalang, at 5:30am.

The passenger van had suffered extension damage to its front in the impact, while many five-kilo bags lay scattered across the road.

There were no passengers in the van at the time of the accident.

Rescue workers safely extracted Jaturong Veeraphun, the 35-year-old driver of the passenger van, from his crumpled vehicle. Mr Jaturong has suffered minor head injuries when his head struck the steering wheel in the impact.
