Cambodia News (Phnom Penh): A tragic accident occurred when a Filipino woman, MARASIGAN MORESETTE ACERO, 22 years old, an English Teacher at Westline International School, died in a motorbike accident as she was chasing bag snatchers on street 92, Sangkat Khmounh, Khan Sen Sok, Phnom Penh.

Before the incident, the victim was riding her motorbike, plate no—Kandal 1-O-8811, on Mong Rithy road, when suddenly two suspects on a motorbike drove by, snatched her belongings, and drove off. The Filipino woman then took off after the thieves on her motorcycle, chasing them at high speed as they tried to escape. Unfortunately, during the chase, the victim had a fatal collision with a truck and died in the accident.

After the crash, the policeman Lieutenant Hour Meng went to check the security camera to see what happened and examined the accident scene. The woman's body was taken to keep at Teuk Thla pagoda, waiting for the victim's family to claim it. RIP.

Snatchers will grab any bag, there's nothing in the story to suggest she had any particular phone or valuables in there. Sad anyway, only 22.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I'm always telling my girl not to put to much stuff in her bag eg bank cards notebooks with all her contacts passport,I'd card to much cash but she never takes any notice of me.
If she looses her bag shes stuffed
I'm standing up, so I must be straight

Passport? Anger? Something sentimental? You'll never know

Poor kid...
Perhaps, these types of incidents should be given more scrutiny than a few card games.
You better put your bag under your seat and never flash anything of any value...
Chasing after them was such a bad idea.
bless your heart ...
