Kampot Cop Run Over While Directing Traffic

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.

Kampot to PP is only like 3 + hours
Vietnam hospitals are closer, cheaper and often better. Bear in mind the border is 20 mins drive from Kampot town, if in a hurry.

Yeah the video is shocking. I thought for sure his legs got ran over as well.

One thing though, that I found very odd about the video is that there were something like 3 people in close proximity to the cop and all of them ran after the offending vehicle.

They didn't even so much as look down at the cop as they ran past him.

I would have thought someone would have checked on the cop instead of racing after the truck, hoping to join in on a rock throwing lynching or whatever they were intending to do with the driver.

They are not equipped for to serious cases/surgery however they will stabilize you for transport to a different hospital.

If you walk in with a bad cough or because it burns when you pee, sure.

It's 40km, if you don't go as far as kampong trach. And yeah, better hospitals in Vietnamese cities and towns than here...

You would think that this sort of thing would motivate the powers that be to create some respect for authority and a little more awareness of the sense of law and order. But hey, it's the Kingdom of Wonder right?
