Cambodia News (Steung Treng): On December 05, 2019, a tank hit the bridge barrier at the Cambodia Chinese friendship bridge at Mekong river, in Steung Treng while it was crossing. Neither the bridge nor the tank were seriously injured. The driver of the tank has not explained why he hit the bridge.
However, police have received the information, and the incident has been reported to the Ministry of transportation.

Thank goodness it was just an APC and not a battle tank. Otherwise the railing would probably be gone.

I beg to disagree! You see the raw pink flesh of the bridge railing. She(or is a bridge a 'he' and what about the railing?)'s seriously injured, the poor thing.

Bridge railings have feelings too, you know!

Repulsed a tank, survived with just the scars, made CEO front pages and got the poor errant driver into all kinds of trouble and woe.
Bridge railing has just been made an honorary member of the The Infamous Cambodian Road Divers Guild.

How I wish bridge railings were made of plastic.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
