Ten undocumented Lao migrant workers were killed and three others were seriously injured in a head-on collision early Sunday in eastern Thailand’s Sa Kaeo province while traveling by van to Chanthaburi province on the border of Cambodia to renew their tourist visas, Thai police said.

“There was an accident on Sa Kaeo Road in Sa Kaeo province in which a van carrying Lao workers collided head-on with a tractor trailer, killing six female and four male Lao workers,” Police Colonel Chaiyanant Jilapiyaset, head of the Wangsombun District Police Station in Sa Kaeo province, told RFA’s Lao Service.
