Battambang, Cambodia News: In the early hours of 31 December 2018, a fatal traffic accident was reported between a Porsche, license plate 2AJ-7162, and a motorbike in Kompong Chhal District, Battambang. The Porsche, driven by a Chinese man accompanied by his wife, collided with a motorbike driven by two local teenage boys, aged 15 and 16, near Svay Thom village.

Following the accident, police arrived on the scene and took the driver of the Porsche into custody. One of the boys was already dead and the other was sent to hospital, but it was too late to save him and he died shortly afterwards. Police have impounded the Porsche and contacted the victims' families.

Yet another murderous Chinese driver. They never seem to have anything less than a Lexus. They all must be laundering money by the container load to keep it away from Xi's tax mandarins.

RIP boys.

When an accident occurs, some people make assumptions about who was at fault. I dont know who was at fault, but maybe the boys on the motorbike did something stupid and caused the accident.

Fair point- but I'm sure if you have spent some time in the K.O.W you have seen plenty of expensive vehicles speeding down roads, going much faster than the rest of the traffic and seeming to pay little, if any regard for the safety of other road users. It seems to be part of attitude where they feel entitled, as though the poorer road-sharers lives are of little value. But I'm not sure if wealthy suv driving Khmer are any better in this regard.

I have driven in some crazy places in the world, Philippines, Thai, and driven taxi in LA, Detroit, and Miami. I've also been in China 2X for 3 weeks each and it is the only place I've ever been where they couldn't pay me to drive. Those folks are nuts on the road. A wise man once said that "You can mark the end of western civilization when people start driving their cars like their supermarket carts. That is China!

Sometimes car drivers do stupid things, and sometimes motorbike riders do stupid things.

Many Cambodian boys on motorbikes are smart asses.

I have not bought a motorbike because with the amount of stupid people on the road, it is highly likely I would be involved in an accident no matter how careful I am. Then many people would say it was my fault, and I may be obligated to pay for someone elses stupidity.
