You would think they would have the decency to lower that flag to half mast.
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.

Doesn't look very bad accident my Chinese standards/ I would imagine he was not wearing a safety belt It looks like a survivable accident. Using common sense and having basic driving skills he probably would be alive now.

You do see that the truck is so far on the wrong side of the road it's actually on the shoulder right?

1st photo shows a skid mark from a rear tyre that locked up. I’m guessing truck was overtaking and had no where to go and went further left. Oncoming car (the Chinese guy) went to his right and slid down the offside of the truck. Looks like the truck driver was at fault for a poorly executed overtaking manoeuvre.
