Phanom Sarakham police announced the death of a monk on Highway 319 in Phanom Sarakham district on Saturday night.

Five monks and two others were injured in the accident involving three vehicles, in which the abbot died.

It appears that a truck was awaiting space to make a u-turn, when a van ran into the back of it, resulting in the latter being catapulted into the path of an oncoming vehicle on the opposite carriageway.

Eighty-year-old abbot, Luang Pu Phan Chanthako died at the scene with the injured being transferred to Phanom Sarakham Hospital.
