2 Trains Crash in Sihanoukville

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.

Holy shit, for a country with only 2 single-track train routes there are a ridiculous amount of train accidents.

Probably not a good idea to run red lights when you are in a train. Obviously one of the two ignored the red signal

Did the train engineers run together or in opposite directions?

Obviously one of the trains was speeding, or were they playing chicken to see who would give way first .
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

One of the trains was loading/unloading petrol at a Tela storage depot and the other one ran into it, from what I can gather from the article. At least there wasn't a massive explosion.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
