Thirteen Burmese people were killed on Friday as their van hit a truck in central Thailand that burst into flames, police said.

The latest gruesome accident took place on the kingdom's notoriously dangerous roads.

The van was travelling from the border town of Mae Sot, a common entry point for Myanmar migrant workers, to Bangkok when it crashed into the 10-wheeler in Singburi province early Friday morning, said a local police officer, according to The Business Times report.

"Authorities are still identifying (the victims) as their bodies were heavily burned," the officer said, adding that the Thai driver was also killed in the accident.
Thailand's roads are some of the most lethal in the region.
