White Car Turns Black After Swim in Phnom Penh Canal

Cambodia News (Phnom Penh): On February 11, 2020, at around about midnight, a Toyota Prius car was being driven at high speed along national road 4 in Phnom Penh, when suddenly it left the road and drove into a filthy black smelly canal.

Fortunately, neither the driver nor the passenger were injured. Because no one was hurt and no other vehicle was involved, when police came to inspect the accident scene, they allowed the car owner to have his vehicle lifted out of the canal and taken away for repairs and cleaning without further ado.

Hotwheels now make cars that change colour when dipped in water. Much cheaper

They probably did more damage to it lifting it out with chains than it did going into the sewer :dm:
