Confirmed since yesterday, I met 2 of the monks not that long ago at a funeral ceremony at Wimbledon Thai temple. They were young, in their 30s. This has shocked the Thai Buddhist community of course, and I wonder how the accident could happen like that. It seems the female driver (who was only slightly injured) drove on the wrong side of the road, collided with another car, then her car with the monks in the back overturned and they were crushed to death (not wearing seat belts?).
We will dedicate some evening funeral chanting to them.
