PHUKET: After four days of the Songkran Seven Days of Danger national road safety campaign, Phuket’s death and injury toll stands at one dead and 17 people injured in 17 accidents.

Five accidents which resulted in five people being admitted to hospital for treatment of injuries occurred in the 24 hours ending at midnight last night, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Phuket office (DDPM-Phuket) reported this morning.

Phuket’s sole road fatality was Nannika Boonchorn, 27, from Chaiyaphum, who died in a high-speed head-on collision with a motorcycle with a sidecar on Sunday (story here).

Her blood alcohol concentration was recorded at 0.268 BAC, the DDPM-Phuket noted today.

The DDPM-Phuket also reported the death and injury toll in the other Andaman Coast provinces as follows:
