Tragic Twist: High-Ranking Officer’s Fatal Collision with Tree Leaves Sisaket Mourning

A devastating incident occurred in Sisaket province, northeastern Thailand, resulting in the untimely death of a high-ranking officer from the Nam Kliang Police Station. The officer’s vehicle collided with a tree, causing fatal injuries. While the driver of the car survived the accident, he suffered severe injuries and was promptly rushed for medical treatment.

The local police received an alert about the fatal road accident involving a pickup truck and a tree in the early hours of 3:30 am. Upon receiving the notification, Gongsri Prachan, the duty officer, along with emergency medical personnel and Sisaket Rescue volunteers, quickly rushed to the scene near Ban Pueay School in the Phrom Sawat district.

When they arrived, they found a bronze-grey Toyota Vigo four-door pickup with license plate number 3 ขฒ 5733 from Bangkok parked by the roadside. The front left side of the vehicle exhibited significant impact damage.

Tragically, inside the vehicle, they discovered the lifeless body of Police Captain Phongsathon Sokool, the station chief of Nam Kliang Police Station. Phongsathon had suffered a broken leg and a visible impact wound on his chest. His cause of death was pronounced at the scene. It was noted that he was not wearing a seatbelt.


The driver of the vehicle, Thitiphat Buahom, an officer from Nam Kliang Police Station, was found next to Phongsathon. Thitiphat sustained head injuries and arm pain. He was immediately transported to Phayu Provincial Hospital for emergency treatment. However, due to the severity of his head injuries, he has since been transferred to Sisaket Hospital for further diagnosis and treatment.

Preliminary investigations suggest that Thitiphat lost control of the vehicle, causing it to collide with a large tree on the roadside. Phongsathon, who was sitting in the front passenger seat without a seatbelt, was thrown against the console during the crash, resulting in his immediate demise. Thitiphat suffered injuries in the accident.
