Kampot, Cambodia Breaking News: A road accident occurred on January 10, 2020, when a bus carrying foreign and Cambodian passengers left the road and overturned between km 142-1443 in Prey Kabb village, Prey Khbum commune, Teuk Chhou district, in Kampot province.
Image
A blue bus, with license plate number 3C-7070, from an unidentified transport company was carrying 33 passengers, 6 Khmers and 27 foreigners when it crashed for reasons not yet explained. No other vehicle was involved.
The unidentified driver was apparently unhurt, because he fled the accident scene immediately. However, three foreign women are reportedly among the injured who were taken to hospital.

The bus has been impounded by police for inspection.

"The unidentified driver was apparently unhurt, because he fled the accident scene immediately"

Ffs as you do over here, if ever found they should receive double the punishment for fucking off and not explaining what happened.

Madness on an industrial scale

I'm surprised only three people were injured.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

They fuck off because the mob beatdown can be severe if not deadly.. The schoolteacher was good example.

Only 3 foreigners Cambodiam injuries are apparently unimportant and therefore unreported I guess

Given that 3 foreigners were injured out of 26, I'd assume that in this case none of the 6 Cambodians were injured. Will see what the follow-up report say though.

Luckily, the bus was only built to carry 10 people and the 33 were crammed in so tight it limited the injuries.
I suspect nearly everyone on here has a story to tell about bus rides or private car rides from PP to Kampot or Sihanoukville..
I was warned not to hire a car by a mamasan at a riverside bar years ago...take the bus she advised.
She was right..the Lexus driver thought he was at the Indy 500 and was talking on 3 different phones.
Why do people have to infer that the Khmer passengers' well being is unimportant?
What do you gain from this division?

Ten tourists injured in Kampot bus crash

A tourist bus on Saturday plunged into a ditch in Kampot province’s Toek Chhou district, injuring 10 foreigners.

Chan Dara, Prey Khmum commune police chief, yesterday said that 33 people were on the bus, 27 of whom were foreigners, and they were travelling along National Road 3 from Siem Reap province to Preah Sihanouk province.

He noted the foreigners, including Russian and Czech nationals, were sent to the Kampot provincial referral hospital for treatment.

“So far, we do not know the reason for the accident because the driver and two assistants fled the scene, Mr Dara said. “We are now looking for them.”

He said police believe that the driver was feeling sleepy, noting that if he was he could have handed over the driving to an assistant.

“From initial investigations, we suspect that the bus driver was overtaking a car in front of him and veered too much to the right and plunged into the ditch,” Mr Dara added.
