Cambodia News (Kampot): On April 27, 2021, at 7:30 pm, a Brazilian woman expat, NATALIA MONTONI, died on the way to the hospital after she was victim of a motorcycle accident on national road 3, Sangkat Andong Khmer, Kampot.
The police reported that the foreign woman appears to have been the victim of a hit and run accident, which occurred when she was hit from behind by a vehicle while riding her motorbike. On the evening of April 27, 2021, at 7:30 pm, a passerby saw the Brazilian woman lying on the road near a motorbike. 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.
The police determined that the victim was hit by a car that was being driven in the same direction from south to north; they are searching for the car and the driver that caused the accident.
Condolences to the family, and to the many friends of Natalia in Cambodia. She was 32 years old.

From what I gather, it was from Kampot on the way South towards Sihanoukville near Andoung Khmer (the main road). Curfew starts at 8pm so she was probably heading home and the killer was speeding his car like a maniac (as they usually do, but probably even moreso now given the curfew) and rear-ended her. Hopefully they get him.Matty9999 wrote:I went to her yoga class a few times. RIP. I wonder what she was doing out on the road at this time during a lockdown. Does anyone know if this was near PP or Kampot?
Cambodia... generally speaking it does not seem like the type of place to move to if you want to extend your life span... drug ODs, traffic accidents, dysentery, rabies, and so on..Bitte_Kein_Lexus wrote: ↑Thu Apr 29, 2021 9:15 amFrom what I gather, it was from Kampot on the way South towards Sihanoukville near Andoung Khmer (the main road).

This happened close to or at the International Village connection with SR 3The police determined that the victim was hit by a car that was being driven in the same direction from south to north;
North means she had to be heading back to downtown Kampot where she probably lived.
Discovered at 7:30 - that’s well before curfew.
Because the perp didn’t stop she probably pretty much bled out on the road. Minutes count in trauma situations. Those precious minutes were burned in a selfish callous indifference.
I know there are no stats on hit&runs here but It’s safe to say the person who stops is the exception and the ones who run are well north of 90%. It seems to be a cultural thing. It’s root? Who knows?
she knew only what had been told her
That road's dangerous at night. It's lit up for a bit, but then completely dark beyond the city with some long bends and cars/trucks driving like idiots/overtaking blindly. The worst are the taxi drivers. You always have to keep really close to the shoulder if driving remotely slow. I've seen numerous accidents on that stretch and don't even live in Kampot.
Another reminder to always wear a helmet people, and check to make sure your rear/front lights are working. [I'm not implying she wasn't, but a lot of Kampot expats don't wear helmets despite the higher risk out there. Anything that can help keep the odds in your favour is good]. As for the hit&run yes, it's cultural because they know they'll get beat up of they stay. Catch-22 of Khmer logic. Even insurance companies advise to leave the scene immediately and they'll send a representative.
