Previously, a truck hit a 2m80 height barrier, knocking it down into the street, before driving off without stopping.
Workers came to fix the barrier, but it fell on a passing motocyclist named Lim Visoth, 75, killing him instantly. RIP.

I'm guessing the workers had put the height barrier back up, before it fell over again, unfortunately killing the passing moto-cyclist

Very unlucky guy, to be passing by at that time

Not to make light of the tragedy but the man was 75 years old. Considering modern Cambodian history, he must have had a fair bit of luck to make it to make it to that age.
