A bus skidded off the Mae Sot - Tak road in Muang district of Tak province and rammed into a tree early Thursday, killing the driver and injuring 17 passengers, most of them Myanmar workers, police said. 

The police said the bus, which departed Mae Sot district about 11pm, was taking about 50 Myanmar migrant workers back to Bangkok after spending the Songkran holiday in their home country.

At tambon Mae Tho, the bus ran off the road on a curve while going downhill and smashed into a roadside tree.
