In its latest announcement, Thailand’s CPS company, which employed Vietnamese workers, said it will initially offer 200,000 THB (2,000 USD) to families of victims, then 700,000 THB depending on vehicle insurance.

According to the Thai media, the accident occurred in an intersection 150 km west of Bangkok.

The surviving driver of the 16-seater van said the car was on way to Phunamron border gate, Myanmar when it was hit by a truck behind at an intersection without traffic light.

The van later plunged into a roadside canal after the crash.

About 100 search and rescue staff, drivers, public security and army forces were rushed to the scene to search for the victims.

All eight bodies were found, including a pregnant woman. Four others were sent to a nearby hospital.
