Carnage on Monivong: accident causes 3 dead and 6 injured

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.

I heard they lifted the car as someone was trapped underneath, nothing to do with mob justice.

The beat down the cunt got was and in this case I think it justified enough to turn a blind eye to. If he had got out after the initial "minor" accident and got his ass handed to him mob justice would not have been justified, IMHO

Yeah, weird he ran if he just dented the car door, especially to try and do a U-y and go full pelt. Dent in a door is $30. New door maybe $100. Each dead one is $2500.

So many times I've seen runners get into so much more trouble after an accident than if they just stopped and dealt with it. Granted if the initial accident involved someone dying or significant injury you still will probably see mob justice. Again it's due to the poor justice system and not seeing justice for the injured people involved.

I say you get what you get in this country. But I've been told even if you're not at fault if you're involved in a major accident like that, death or serious injury, best to run and contact the cops later to deal with it. But again if the government showed it was competent, also police that arrive on the scene, and at least not corrupt on the surface you might see change in the mentality.

fuck arresting him should have let the crowd finish him off the cunt
RIP
I hope this was sarcasm :facepalm: One of the reason these "i hit one car little -> panic -> i try escape and then accidentally hit more people" things happens because of this "beat the the guy who crashed" attitude in Cambodia. I just wish you never accidentally hit anyone when driving out there.
Some cases like this. Most of people who have cars drive like they will not die even traffic accident happen so they don't care about anyone else.
they don't care about anyone else !!!!!

Yes, it is all "ME, ME ,ME, here in this country. No respect or consideration for anyone else !

what is in the khmers ( and thai's as well) make up that makes them always want to attack people? Sure he fucked up, but....

Is it cause they know that justice will NOT be given?

May we consider a more primal genetic predisposition to resort to violence into the extreme in some % of any population of any culture on any given day? Cognizant of the fact that they will not be punished.

Just putin it out there.

According to Huy Bunleng, the driver is in a critical condition in hospital with severe brain injuries.

Koon Khmer reports that he has a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, and that he is not expected to live.

Maybe something to do with this:

"“They beat him until he lost consciousness and when he started to come around they started beating him again,” he said."

"the driver, who appears to be floating in and out of consciousness with substantial wounds to his head and face. At one point, a large slab of concrete hits the man on his side"

mixed thoughts, sad to hear someone suffering and not likely to make it, eye for an eye and all that but, did he deserve a beating for driving like and idiot and killing 3 people, probably, does he deserve to die from the beating, probably not, let him suffer in prison and reflect on his actions, is a more suitable punishment
i guess the families of the already deceased wont have much sympathy
