A 10-wheel truck crashed into a passenger train in central Thailand, killing at least five people and injuring about two dozen others, rail officials said.

The train, which originated from northern Malaysia, was headed to Bangkok with more than 400 passengers, said Montakan Sriwilas, a spokeswoman for State Railways of Thailand.

The victims included three people aboard the truck and at least two passengers on the train, all of Thai nationality.

The truck drove through a barricade alongside the tracks and collided with the passing train at about 9 am, as it sped through the town of Ratchaburi, about 95 kilometres southwest of Bangkok.
