The 35 year old driver of a Honda car, broken down at the side of a Bangkok expressway, has been killed after his car was rear-ended by a Mercedes Benz early this morning.

He was found dead on the road.

His passengers, 38 year old Saijai Praman and 47 year old Noppawan Pimthong, were both taken to hospital, along with the injured driver of the Mercedes, Sukrit Manasomjit.
