NAKHON RATCHASIMA: Three female factory workers were killed and six others injured, one of them seriously, in an accident in Kham Thale So district of this northeastern province on Saturday, police said.

Pol Lt Col Kittipong Panthu, a Kham Thale So police investigator, said the accident occurred at about 4.55pm at a three-way junction on Kham Thale So-Nong Suang road, involving a mini-bus and a motorcycle.

A police investigation revealed that the mini-bus was taking 11 female workers from Ban Wang in Non Thai district to work at Laem Thong factory in Sung Noen district when a motorcycle, driven by Thongdaeng J., 63, cut in front of it. The mini-bus hit the motorcycle, before skidding off the road and ramming into a power post.

Nine workers were injured in the violent impact and admitted to Kham Thale So and Theparat hospitals. Three of them died on arriving at the hospitals. One of the six others, who was seriously injured, was referred to Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital.

The motorcycle driver was not hurt.
