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.

What a waste of life. Getting hit from behind while on a bike is one of my worst and constant concerns over here. RIP Natalia. 😪😪

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?

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.

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..

In all my time here & again on two wheels to avoid traffic, the one thing I would never do is ride on the national roads, even in broad daylight. I am supremely confident in my riding skills, take good care of my bike maintenance & ride like I'm driving Miss Daisy, and I still would not hazard this even for a 5 minute down the national road milk & eggs run; people drive like idiots.

RIP.

Cambodian people do not give one single fuck about anyone around them when it comes to driving or music. They will run you over or play ear-splittingly loud music without blinking an eye. Don't say anything though or you're the cunt.

The police determined that the victim was hit by a car that was being driven in the same direction from south to north;
This happened close to or at the International Village connection with SR 3
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 was quite pretty and looked older
she knew only what had been told her

South to North, my bad. That means the perp was heading the same way: back towards the city. Much higher chance of finding him via CCTVs in that case. Good.

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.
