A Capitol Tour bus hit a motorbike from behind on National Road 5, injuring three people, one seriously. All three accident victims were transported to the provincial hospital.
The bus driver immediately fled the scene, leaving the bus on the road. He is being sought by the police. No information is given on what happened to the bus passengers.

yes i can confirm that the image on the right is definitely a motorbike and the one on the left is indeed a bus.with capitol tour in english and khmer on the front of the bus

only thing surprising is that it got into print. on road five it would look like it is a multiple/day occurrence to an unaccustomed eye.

So these drivers that are always fleeing the scene, I understand why but where do they go? Assuming they are sometimes 100s of km's away from home with no money, do they usually get picked up or just forgotten about by the police?

What happens to the passengers after they are abandoned by the driver?

Bus companies should be forced to keep a spare driver in the luggage hold in case the bus driver crashes and flees the scene.

my impression is that this fleeing driver phenomenon in the region is because that they fear for their safety as they may be beaten or killed at the scene by various interlopers. else they could have blood alcohol content or drug influence behavior
