Prince Norodom Ranariddh Injured & His Wife Killed in Fatal Car Crash in Sihanoukville, Cambodia

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.

WTF? prince norodom doesnt hvnt police escort while some rich chink investors fucker does?
From the news :

The Prince was indeed with a motorcade.
The lead car was opening the way by pushing/forcing the incoming cars to the side, the highlander, driving fast, was surprised and moved to the side, but he moved too far to the right and almost fell to the "gutter" hence he turned left to get back on track but didn't manage his car correctly and hit the car of his Majesty (who was the 4th car of the convoy).
So the lead car was not a police escort with flashing beacons? Just another car driving in the middle of the road dangerously forcing people to manoeuvre out the way?. See them every day I use the HWY 4, but these are usually just self proclaimed VIPs without escorting anyone actually important who I regard as pretentious little dick heads! Many driving the opposite do not like to loose face by being forced off the road too!

Could have been anything leading the road.

You're totally right, I'm always wondering if they ever think : "oh, what might happen if I force him to move to the side and he doesn't ?"

Remeber the accident not so long ago between a Lexus 470 and a fuel truck ?

Last time I came back from Snooky, I was in a taxi, and it was raining really heavily. Up ahead, I could see red lights in the opposite lane, but they seemed to be approaching. It turned out to be some dummy with red lights instead of white on the front of his vehicle. No wonder people get killed.
