Lexus Sinks Ferry Boat

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.

Is it that Lexus always get into trouble in Cambodia or is it that people are picking on Lexus?
People assume its expensive because it's a Lexus, but that model is one of the cheaper cars around, probably less than $15,000.

probably a lot less than that after his little dip.

I'm 90% sure I know that crossing (although many similar in Prey Veng). those little rafts that cross that stretch are good for a few people and a couple of motos Only a total bonehead would consider putting their car on it (also the slope down is very steep). At this time of year many parts of that area are underwater so maybe he had been away and realized he couldn't get home. Probably a brain dead pig farmer who'd just come from a gambling trip to bavet.

Will the car be any good now after being submerged in the river ?
I mean, it is an amphibious exploring vehicle - so it should be fine, right
