Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: At 11:40 pm on May 29, 2019, a luxury high-speed car (police plate 2-5769), driven by a high-ranking police official, crashed into two motorbikes before coming to an abrupt halt after hitting a traffic sign and then smashing into a power pole near Wat Samrong Andet in Phnom Penh Thmey district, Khan Sen Sok. Witnesses say that the driver appeared to be extremely drunk.
Image
The drunk driver has been identified as the Deputy Chief of Traffic Police of Phnom Penh. The official, who was obviously unharmed, left the accident scene almost immediately, and the car was towed away to the police station. The two motorbikes were wiped out in the accident, and the two drivers were seriously injured and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.
