The State Railway of Thailand says the accident at 2:20 a.m. Friday also injured four people in the Muang district of Chachoengsao province. The railway agency says the deceased include an 18 year old, two people in their 20s and five people over 55, while the injured included four men in their 20s. The driver says he slowed, but passengers in the vehicle urged him to keep going. When he realized the truck was headed for a collision, he could not stop in time.
