Two die as crowded workers’ truck rolls
13 November 2017
Two workers died and nearly 100 were injured when a truck overturned on Friday in Kampong Cham’s Cheung Prey district.

Driver Chhai Kimheng, 34, fled from the scene but was arrested on Saturday. Provincial police chief Em Kosal said he was being questioned at the provincial police station. “We will send him to court after we complete our work,” Mr Kosal said.
He added that the driver caused the accident by swerving hard.

Provincial Governor Kuoch Chamroeun visited the workers in hospital and distributed aid to them. He posted on his Facebook page that it was incredible an overturning truck should cause nearly 100 workers to suffer, including the driver’s wife and sister.
“There were too many people riding on it. The truck could not take it,” he said.
