I just received word that there was an incident involving the Bangkok to Ubon train this evening in Sisaket.
Apparently the incident happened near the Big C in Sisaket and it involved a truck.
More details to come as I get them.

G’day Andrew, I thought I’d better update you on that train crash. I confirmed it with Tommy and the boys who socialize in the evenings near the Sisaket train station.
It was the rail motor that hit a gravel truck. The rail motor was heading towards Ubon. The train driver managed to jump out of the cab before it hit the truck. The cab was crumpled way back.
The rail motor was parked at Sisaket train station for a couple of days before being moved away for repair. Apparently the train driver suffered a nervous breakdown after the crash and needed hospital treatment.
