Brazilian Woman NATALIA MONTONI Killed in Kampot Road Accident

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.

The police were called and they sent her to the hospital, but unfortunately, she could not be saved and died on the way to the hospital.
This reads somewhat contrary to the photos. They’ve got a foot in a sandal in the photo, and a marker for the photographer. Was someone else involved, or was she dead at the scene, and didn’t die en-route to hospital? Or did they calmly setup the photography before rendering first aid.

There’s a second heap several meters away, near the parked truck, which is of interest to the police.

Given some of the public response to medical aid, such as burying in sand for shock victims, it’s easy to believe that minor accidents will result in death from what may otherwise be survivable injuries. That bike looks superficially damaged (from the photo) rather than having any major collision. A slight tap, and a tumble. A helmet might have meant only gravel rash and few broken bones.

It’s a country that’s in desperate need of a road safety campaign.

In the current climate though, it’s possible to expect the overall accident rate to drop, except maybe random collisions with hastily waved batons.

The “second heap” appears to be the usual leafy tree branch placed in the road as a warning to other drivers, the Cambodian equivalent of a red warning triangle.
Just my opinion: The victim and the bike are very close together and as you say, there doesn’t look to be much damage to the bike. If there was third party involved it was probably no more than a clip, the bikes gone down and slid, no helmet was worn and she’s cracked her head on the road resulting in death.
If she died on the way to hospital, why is there a body bag placed on the ground next to the victim?

Gut-wrenching. My thoughts go out to her friends and family.

UPDATE: 1 May 2021
According to a post by Natalia's sister on her Facebook page, the family in Brazil have decided that her last rites should be held in Kampot, Cambodia, among her friends and the people that she loved. The date of the funeral has yet to be communicated.

From Facebook today:

Laurent Villatte
Kampot Noticeboard

Dear friends,
The unpresented outpouring of solidarity to support Natalia’s family makes me speechless. I have no words to explain the gratitude about your beautiful messages, thoughts, videos, memories… I knew that Natalia was loved, but at this point, it shows again how Solar she was.
Thank you so much for your donations that will help to cover the expenses.
Due to some technical issues, that people are unfortunately facing on the actual crowd funding, another website is below. More than the incinerations the donations will pay for sending her personal belongings back home, organizing the ceremony in Kampot. With extra money we think about a memorial here also.
Her body will be cremated in Phnom Penh and ashes will be sent back to Kampot where funerals will be organized and broadcasted live in Brazil. This is a very courageous and respectful decision from her family knowing that Natalia wanted to build her life here.
Now, about the accident, Natalia has been hit by a truck on April 27th between Kampot and Sihanoukville at night time. The truck was driving over speed limitations which is regrettably way too common here… Cambodia Roads are dangerous and ruthless places where drivers often hit and run. I’m actually pushing the investigation and will fight to pursue the responsible person.
She is looking at us with love and compassion now. Let’s keep going that way and wish her a good travel.
Thank you all
