A 25-year-old Thai woman was killed this morning (May 13) in a strange accident near a department store in Bangkok, sanook.com reported.
The woman was on her motorcycle waiting for traffic lights to change when a big tree suddenly fell on an electricity pole, which crashed on to the road, killing the woman instantly.
An eyewitness told police investigators that there was no storm in that area. “The tree suddenly fell onto a power pole, which subsequently pulled down five more poles,” he said.
