Australian Expat PATRICK SMITH Injured by Hit & Run Driver in Phnom Penh

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

The OP seems to care more for the beautiful white scoopy.

What a mess was made. Not stopping shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

He also seems to have worked with DFDL in the past.

This guy was subject to a hit and run, presumably didn't do anything wrong and surely didn't choose or want to get his pictures posted on the internet with his full name included. Maybe the jokes about his appearance should rather be told in private?

On the positive side - the guy looks a bit stunned but not too badly hurt, people stopped to help him and call an ambulance, no one stole his wallet or his motorbike.

I think it's a Cambodian thing. He's an accident victim, but he's alive, so can be joked about, so I guess that's also positive. Only hope he has a sense of humour.

Lets hope the competent authorities can bring the perpetrator to justice.

Saw this yesterday and was wondering what had happened as I didn't see his motorbike, but his injuries seemed to severe for a simple walking stumble. Part of me assumed he had jumped off the second floor at Khmer Solar.

Well, at least he's a pretty good advertisement wearing shorties while on the road in Cambodia is not the best idea. His shin looks pretty fucked up, he'd better get some vaccinations quickly. Hopefully the helpful police-guy reminded him of that.
