Students killed in Thailand bus crash
Friday 01 July 2011
Three British gap-year students travelling through Thailand have been killed in a bus crash.
Bruno Melling-Firth, Conrad Quashie and Max Boomgaarden-Cook were on a coach bound for the northern town of Chiang Mai when it collided head-on with another bus in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Another two Britons on board survived the "serious accident", the Foreign Office said. One is now recovering from his injuries in a Bangkok hospital. The accident happened in Khlong Khlung, in the Kamphaeng Phet province, shortly after midnight. The three men killed, all understood to be 19 and from London, were reported to have died instantly.
Almost 40 other passengers are understood to have been injured in the crash.
