Child's Dead Body Found on the Road After Hit and Run

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.

Sure, every time I hear of a fatal accident anywhere in the world I blame the whole nation.
I have travelled the world pretty much.i have never read about so many people fleeing after accidents in any other countries i have been. So yes,i stick by my initial assessment.
But you are assuming that Cambodian drivers flee because they are guilty. Mostly, they run because they are afraid of being beaten up, even if they didn't cause the accident. They may even run to the police station.
This syndrome of running away from accidents is really bad in Cambodia, but IMO it comes from the general lack of trust in a corrupt justice system, rather than some genetic moral failure in Cambodian people.
If you just keep getting another spin of the wheel then dying isn't such a big deal. Also, children are considered replaceable. Especially female children.

I agree John but when the ordinary people consistently see no justice... well what would you expect, Cambodia often makes me think of Feudal England in the middle ages.

Poor little darling :(

I’ve seen truck drivers who are so short and / or young they can’t see out the truck properly.

What a sad situation, RIP little poppet.

It is in many ways a feudal system.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

yes John and I honestly think that many wealthy Khmers think when something like this happens that they don't get it and their thinking is but it was only a peaseant, one of millions and yet I am wealthy and connected person, I don't understand the outrage, middle ages shit.
