The body of Mrs. Thitichaya Yamkaesorn, 21, from Ratchaburi, was found outside the sedan.

Inside the sedan rescue staff found two injured people who were named as Mr. Teerayut Kueanta, 39, and Mr. Bandit Jaroensap, 33, both from Chanthaburi.

It took about 30 minutes for rescue workers to free them with a jaw of life from the sedan. They were taken to a local hospital for medical assistance.

Police said they are staffers at a factory in Samut Prakan which is about five kilometres from the scene.

At this stage police believed that the sedan driver was unable to see the train coming when they were crossing the railway.

However, police are continuing their investigation for further potential legal action.

Earlier this month a train collided with a bus in Thailand killing and injuring dozens of people. Thai government officials have said barriers will be installed nationwide to prevent further incidents.
